Truck accidents are serious in nature due to the size of trucks and trailers involved in these types of accidents. Damage to property and long-lasting injuries can be severe or even result in death. In these instances, it is important to get all the support you can as you deal with the aftermath of a truck accident. In addition to your medical and insurance resources, working with an Atlanta truck accident attorney is essential to keep your claim on track.
Truck accidents are more complicated than most other vehicle accidents due to additional issues of negligence, liability, and commercial interests. Trucks used in transporting goods have multiple potentially responsible parties due to the types of contracts and business relationships involved in our transportation system. Determining the issue of third-party liability will identify who is responsible for paying for damages caused by your truck accident. This gets complicated and is often resolved through extensive investigation and court proceedings. Commercial businesses will fight to protect their bottom line, and you need someone to fight to protect your interests and your recovery. The legal team at Gilormo Injury Law is experienced in handling complex truck accident cases and will fight for you. With Amber on your side, you do not need to face the insurance companies or court system alone.
Truck Accident Dangers: Cargo and Spills
Trucks are part of our supply chain and without trucks on our roads, we would not be able to get many things so easily. Not only do we rely on trucks to get goods to individual stores, but trucks also bring our cargo from manufacturers to distribution centers, shipping centers, and private addresses. With the convenience of home delivery for various products, including groceries, toiletries, clothing, and other home goods, we often forget about the broad scale of shipping goods by truck.
Sometimes when there is a truck accident, the cargo is spilled onto the roadways. Atlanta made headlines a few years ago with numerous roadway disruptions, including the Atlanta Braves foam tomahawk spill. While this incident was quickly cleared to make the highway passable and safe, other types of cargo spills are more dangerous to others on the road.
Trucks that carry hazardous materials pose far more risk to highway safety. Trucks carrying flammable or combustible materials can cause fires in accidents, and liquid or grain spills can increase dangerous road conditions, which contribute to additional collisions and vehicle damage. If you are involved in one of these more complex truck accidents, it is even more important to reach out to an Atlanta truck accident attorney because of all the moving parts involved in these accidents. Gilormo Injury Law can identify the risks, hazards, and parties that contributed to your truck accident injury.
