Truck Accidents in Georgia
Trucks are the largest vehicles on Georgia roads. Because of this, they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of an accident. Thousands of people are hurt in truck accidents within the state every single year. In just one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to the reckless acts of others. Truck accidents can typically be prevented but continue to occur due to the recklessness of others every year. Because truck drivers spend an extended period of time on our roads, they are likely to drive distracted or fall asleep at the wheel from time to time. If you have been hurt in a truck accident and wonder where you can turn, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust.
