Helping People Who Have Been Seriously Injured In A Truck Accident
There are an ever-increasing number of tractor-trailer or 18 wheelers on the highway today than ever in the past. Numerous major highways and roadways run through the areas in and around Middle Georgia and the State of Georgia, including Interstate 75, Interstate 85, Interstate 20, Interstate 475, Interstate 16 and other State and Local highways.
These thoroughfares are dense with cars, SUVs, trucks, and commercial vehicles that can collide and result in catastrophic injuries and death. If you have been in an accident involving one of these types of vehicles, especially the large commercial tractor-trailers, you need help from an experienced lawyer. Insurance companies begin immediate investigations of serious trucking accidents. It is very important that you have an experienced lawyer involved as early as soon as possible to gather and protect the evidence that will have an impact on the outcome of your case.
At Law Offices of John D. Christy, P.C., we understand the challenges that individuals and families face after their lives have been impacted by collisions with commercial trucks. The founder of our firm, John D. Christy, has more than 30 years of experience handling all types of personal injury cases for clients who have suffered a range of injuries. He takes the time to explain your options and how a successful resolution of your accident case may allow you to move forward with your life.
Causes Of Trucking Accidents
Whether the vehicles involved are called big rigs, 18-wheelers, semi-trucks or tractor-trailers, the causes of trucking accidents remain the same. As part of building your case, Mr. Christy will investigate and determine what led to your truck accident, including the possibility of:
- Truck driver negligence
- Speeding or other reckless driving
- Distracted driver
- Substance abuse
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Logbook violations and driving more than is allowed
- Improper truck maintenance
- Defective truck parts
- Overloaded, unbalanced or unsecured cargo
Injuries Suffered By Victims
Due to the large size of these trucks and the weight of the cargo they may be carrying, truck accidents often result in devastating and life-altering injuries. We provide representation to clients who have suffered a wide range of catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, broken bones, amputations, neck and back injuries, and more. We also are sensitive in our handling of wrongful death cases, when families have lost loved ones in fatal truck accidents.
