Large truck accidents have life-long consequences

At Garland, Samuel & Loeb PC, we understand that a collision with a large commercial vehicle can happen in the blink of an eye, and can permanently change your life and the lives of your loved ones. The number of large commercial vehicles that played a role in injury crashes on roads in Georgia and throughout the country rose to 77,000 in 2012, up from 63,000 in 2011, according to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. Research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association states that large truck crashes in Georgia accounted for 4.0 percent of commercial vehicles involved in deadly accidents in the U.S. in 2013.

 

Truck driver negligence can be a factor in many of these injurious and fatal truck crashes. You may suffer the consequences of a commercial driver who drives while distracted, or who operates a large truck while fatigued. Negligence may also be at issue when a driver lacks the appropriate training to handle a commercial vehicle under different road conditions and in all kinds of weather. A trucking company can exhibit negligence by allowing a driver with a history of accidents to carry a commercial load.

 

As the result of a truck crash, you may experience traumatic brain injury, loss of a limb, or damage to the back and neck. Some physical damage can require you or a loved one to receive extended or even life-long medical attention. We know that catastrophic injury or a loved one’s death from a large truck accident can take a tremendous toll emotionally and can seriously affect your family’s ability to make ends meet, as well.
