4 Ways a Semi Accident Lawyer Can Help After an Atlanta Trucking Accident

After a serious Atlanta trucking accident, you may be at a loss as to how to handle the responsibilities of requesting documents from the truck company’s insurance provider, assembling evidence, and quantifying the value of your current and future damages all while trying to recuperate from your injuries. The answer is that you shouldn’t, but a semi accident lawyer can.

An attorney can help you in a variety of ways: 

  • acquiring the driving records of the truck’s operator at the time of the crash;
  • compiling an accurate maintenance history of the rig and combing it for discrepancies;
  • discovering past disciplinary action against the truck’s operator, employer, or owner; and
  • researching and verifying that licenses, certifications, and other obligations have been met by the truck’s driver and owner. 

Trucking companies are often resistant to releasing the documents related to this information, and it may be difficult to obtain or analyze them without the assistance of a lawyer. Nevertheless, this information can be crucial in your Atlanta trucking accident case. 

To maximize your Atlanta accident compensation, speak with a semi accident lawyer who has handled cases involving big rig collisions before and will fight for your right to a fair recovery and settlement.
