I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Let an Atlanta Truck Accident
Attorney Help with Your Claim

Truck accidents are among the most serious accident cases that we handle at Gilormo Injury Law.

From the complexities of the claim to the severity of the injuries, truck accident cases pose particular challenges to their victims. If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, an experienced Atlanta truck accident attorney can help you get the compensation you need to protect your future.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Georgia

Most motor vehicle accidents are the result of driver error and simple carelessness, and truck accidents are no different. Many truck accidents are caused by the following:

  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Failing to adjust for weather or traffic conditions
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Failure to pay attention
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating

In addition to these causes, there are other potential causes that are unique to truck drivers:

  • Lack of experience or inadequate training. Safely operating a large truck requires specific skills and extensive experience. Many trucking companies cut costs by hiring inexperienced drivers and fail to ensure that they receive the proper training.
  • Mechanical failures. Large trucks are on the road for an incredible number of hours and hundreds of thousands of miles each year. If the driver or the trucking company fails to make necessary repairs or doesn’t perform routine maintenance, the truck can become unsafe. Brake failures, worn tires, steering problems, and other mechanical failures can result in catastrophic accidents.
  • Driving while drowsy. Due to long hours behind the wheel, truck drivers are especially susceptible to the dangers of driving while fatigued. Driving while fatigued can result in delayed reaction times, poor decision making, and loss of attention. A truck driver who is falling asleep behind the wheel can be deadly for other drivers on the road.

Your accident may be the result of a single cause, or there may be multiple factors. However, it may not be easy to identify the cause of your accident, even if you are certain that it was the truck driver’s fault. An experienced Atlanta truck accident lawyer can review the facts of your case and identify the likely causes.

Catastrophic Truck Accidents Injuries

Because of their size and weight, truck accidents can cause injuries that are more serious than those in passenger vehicle accidents. These injuries can include the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Whiplash
  • Severe burns
  • Severed limbs
  • Compound fractures
  • Organ damage

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, it is important to note that many injuries may not be apparent immediately after the accident. You should get a thorough medical examination from your physician as soon as possible, and don’t be afraid to schedule a follow-up appointment if your symptoms get worse, do not improve, or you begin to experience new symptoms. Your Atlanta truck accident attorney will use your medical records to prove the significance of your injuries.

How an Atlanta Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

For many people, the prospect of going to court can be intimidating. As a result, they decide not to pursue legal action and therefore think they don’t need a lawyer. Before making this decision, it’s important to understand how an attorney can help.

First, even if you don’t go to court, an Atlanta truck accident attorney can help you navigate the claim process with the insurance company. Our legal team will collect the documentation and evidence you need to build your case. We will handle the correspondence and speak on your behalf. We will negotiate with all involved parties to ensure you receive fair compensation. Our Atlanta accident legal team does all of this so you can focus on your health and recovery.

Second, it’s highly unlikely that you will know whether or not you should file suit at the outset. You may not even know what your losses will be. Typically, the decision to sue is made only after all other options to resolve your claim have failed. A skilled lawyer can proceed with legal action to get the compensation you deserve if you are unable to settle your claim fairly.
