What Makes Truck Accident Cases Different?

"Should my Georgia injury claim be different because I was hit by a tractor-trailer as opposed to a smaller vehicle?"

Traffic accidents in Georgia—no matter if a car or truck is involved—produce injuries. Although truck wrecks and car crashes have similarities in that they both can cause injuries and the other drivers may have been responsible for the crash, truck accidents in Georgia are also different in a number of ways.

Accidents involving semi trucks are different because there are other factors that could have contributed to the crash, including:

  • Did the trucker drive too many consecutive hours?
  • Was the truck’s load balanced?
  • Did the cargo exceed the maximum weight limits?
  • When was the last time the truck went in for maintenance?

Trucks are subject to strict federal regulations that other drivers don’t have to abide by. Because of this, there are more rules that a truck driver or his trucking company could have broken, making those parties liable for your truck accident injuries. Although trucks carry a higher amount of insurance coverage, it doesn’t mean they will hand over a larger check for your injuries.

This is why you should engage a skilled truck accident attorney to make sure you seek the right amount of compensation from the trucking company. Additionally, there could be more than one party liable for your accident including the truck driver, trucking company, cargo loader, trailer owner, trailer or truck manufacturer and more.
