Truck Accidents in Georgia
Truck accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads that lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads. In one recent year’s time in the entire U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents due to the recklessness of others. Truck drivers are expected to be some of the safest drivers on our roads. However, these accidents still continue to occur due to negligent reasons every year. Because truck drivers spend long periods of time on our roads, they are more likely to become distracted or fall asleep at the wheel. If you have been hurt in a truck accident caused by another party, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust in your time of need.
