Over 25 Years Of Serving Injured Clients In Georgia

Fighting For You When Catastrophe Strikes

When it comes to traffic accidents involving a large commercial truck versus a standard-sized car, any occupant of the smaller vehicle is more likely to suffer serious, life-changing injuries. In far too many cases, drivers and passengers tragically lose their lives.

Georgia has had its share of road collisions caused by tractor-trailers, leading to devastation that results in hospital stays or worse. Damage to property only adds to the financial costs. When you retain our attorney at The Law Offices of Peter Meyer, P.C., you will have access to 25+ years of experience in wrongful death claims; we will fight for you and protect your rights.

Assessing Liability In Truck Accidents

Compared to other motor vehicle accidents, proving liability in a truck accident case is not as straightforward. A number of different parties may potentially be held liable for the accident, depending on the surrounding circumstances. These parties include:

  • The truck driver employed on staff
  • The owner of the truck or trailer
  • The trucking company
  • The truck manufacturer or parts/equipment manufacturers
  • The individuals who loaded the cargo
  • The maintenance personnel or company
  • A private contractor or government agency that failed to properly maintain the road

Our skilled truck accident attorney can investigate all aspects of your case, determine the responsible parties, and help you pursue the financial justice you deserve by filing multiple claims.

A Truck Crash Aftermath

Trailer-Tractor Accidents
The period after your involvement in a truck accident can be unsettling. Still, it is vital to take some important steps. Keeping yourself safe and away from possibly suffering more injuries comes first. From there, what you do – or fail to do – can have a significant impact on the outcome of your claim and whether you prevail or lose a future personal injury case.

Calling 911 for medical help and reporting the collision to the police helps you while creating a record of the crash, as does reporting the accident to law enforcement and your insurance company. From there, exchanging information and documenting evidence and medical appointments and bills helps tell a potentially tragic story.

Filing A Personal Injury Claim

Georgia’s “at-fault” status means that the negligent motor vehicle operator is responsible for the costs following an accident is responsible for medical costs, damages to the vehicle, and other losses. Victims can file claims against their insurer or the other driver’s insurance carrier, or they file a lawsuit in civil court with the help of our personal injury attorney.
