Accidents Between Cars & Trucks

Knowledgeable Atlanta Car Accident Attorneys Are on Your Side

Fighting for the rights of people injured in accidents between cars and trucks

When passenger vehicles and large trucks collide, the results are often very serious. Many of these accidents result in serious injuries to drivers, passengers or bystanders, and it’s important to take action to pursue the compensation you need and deserve to cover lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. The Atlanta car wreck lawyers at Kaine Law, LLC have years of experience with personal injury claims stemming from truck accidents, and we offer personal attention and reliable counsel as you explore your options for recovering damages.

What causes trucking accidents?

Commercial trucks, like 18-wheelers, have many moving parts, and the operators of these large vehicles must take proper care and precautions to insure the safety of everyone on the road. The following are the most common reasons why these crashes occur:

  • Driver error. Truck drivers must pay close attention at all times and operate their trucks in accordance with their training. Mistakes can lead to very serious crashes on Georgia’s roads and highways.
  • Driver fatigue. Federal law requires truck drivers to take breaks after being on the road for a certain amount of time, but some drivers violate these rules. If they fall asleep at the wheel, the consequences could be catastrophic.
  • Equipment failure. If truck equipment is not in working condition, the driver could easily lose control of the vehicle. Equipment failure or malfunction may be due to defective parts or faulty maintenance on the part of a trucking company.
  • Poor conditions. Bad weather or poorly maintained roads may cause a truck to jackknife and strike other vehicles. Truck operators have a responsibility to adjust to changing conditions to protect others on the road. In some cases, victims may be able to seek damages from government agencies responsible for road or highway upkeep.

These crashes may result in serious injury

Due to the sheer size of the average commercial truck, these accidents tend to result in serious injuries and property damage for the drivers of passenger vehicles. The most common injuries include broken bones, brain trauma, back and spine injuries, and whiplash. These conditions may be temporary, or injured people may have to deal with them for the rest of their lives. In the worst-case scenario, truck accidents result in the paralysis or even death of a friend or family member.
