Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement.

She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

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.

Atlanta Tractor-Trailer
Accident Lawyer for Truck
Driver Negligence Claims

Truck drivers are the lifeblood of our economy.

They are responsible for transporting millions of dollars worth of goods across our country every year. They carry our groceries, clothing, building materials, and other products, without which our economy would grind to a halt. As a result, truck drivers are under tremendous pressure to drive long hours and make deliveries on time. When truck drivers fail to drive safely, they expose other drivers to a significant danger. Truck accidents often result in severe injuries and even death. If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, an Atlanta tractor-trailer accident lawyer can help you put your life back together.

Common Cases of Negligence in Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Truck drivers arguably are held to a higher standard than other drivers. They should have sufficient training and experience to operate their trucks safely when driving on our roads and highways. Tractor-trailers are difficult to maneuver and require a much greater stopping distance than passenger vehicles. Long hours behind the wheel can also take their toll on the driver. Despite all of this, drivers have to be more alert and aware of traffic and road conditions. Due to their size and weight of the vehicle, truck accidents can be catastrophic.

Atlanta Truck Accidents Because of Speeding

Speeding is a very common cause of tractor-trailer accidents and a type of accident our Atlanta tractor-trailer accident lawyer sees often. As mentioned above, drivers are under a lot of pressure to deliver their cargo on time. Many truck drivers find themselves in a position where they have to speed in order to make up time. While speeding is common among all drivers, speeding is much more dangerous for tractor-trailers. Speeding means that they require an even longer distance to stop and can make them even more difficult to maneuver in the event that they have to avoid a road hazard or another vehicle.

Atlanta Truck Accident Because of Tailgating

Tailgating is another common example of truck driver negligence and often goes hand-in-hand with speeding. Following another vehicle too closely is extremely dangerous – if the vehicle in front has to stop quickly, the tractor-trailer is not going to be able to stop in time. Getting rear-ended by a tractor-trailer can easily result in severe injuries and even death.

Our Atlanta Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyer Explains Fault

Some accidents are simply accidents. In other cases, however, the accident was caused by the other driver’s negligence. Negligence is the failure to take reasonable care to prevent an accident. What constitutes negligence is judged by the standard of what a reasonably prudent person would do under the same or similar circumstances. To put it another way, the other driver didn’t intend to cause an accident but was simply careless.

Negligence isn’t always easy to identify. A single seemingly irrelevant fact can make a significant difference in whether your accident was caused by negligence. In some cases, you may be able to use the fact that the other driver committed a traffic violation as evidence of negligence. In other cases, you may have to rely on circumstantial evidence surrounding the accident. An experienced Atlanta tractor-trailer accident lawyer can evaluate your case and determine whether negligence was a factor.
