Macon and Atlanta Trucking Accident Attorney
Handling Vehicle Accident Cases for 17 Years in Georgia
A cursory assessment of a truck accident will reveal vehicle damage and the extent of injuries. Only a more thorough investigation will reveal the factors that led to the crash. A common cause of truck accidents is tired, fatigued and distracted drivers. Also, drivers are sometimes under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Numerous federal regulations exist to prevent fatigue among truck drivers. Truck drivers are required to get set amounts of rest per hours on the road and miles driven. When drivers choose to ignore rest and break laws, and are involved in accidents, they and/or their employer can be held responsible for losses.
