5/2/2012Vehicles are simply no match for the large big rigs that take to the roads. No matter what the cause, odds may be against you if you are injured in a truck accident in Georgia. Get in touch with an attorney if you or someone you love sustained serious or fatal injuries. Compensation may be available to address your losses.
There are 4 common types of truck accidents that can occur, which include the following:
- Underride Accidents – the vehicle ends up under the rear trailer of the truck, possibly due to sudden braking;
- Rollover – most trucks roll over at excessive speeds or may veer off the road;
- Jackknife – the trailer ends up in a 90-degree angle with the truck, when the brakes lock; and
- Tire Blowout – often results in the driver losing control of the truck.
Many of these accidents may be caused by the negligent behavior of a truck driver. This can be the result of sudden stopping/braking, speeding, fatigue, and/or other forms of careless or reckless driving. If this is the case, and it can be proven, you may be entitled to pursue an injury claim for the damages and injuries you have endured.
