Unsafe Lane Change by Big Rig Blamed for Fatal Georgia Highway Accident

According to the Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Analysis Division, 31 percent of large truck accidents in 2009 were caused by truck driver-related factors including speeding, distracted driving and failing to maintain the proper lane. Commercial trucking accidents contribute to an average of 4,000 fatalities each year.

If you are the victim of a truck accident it is important to have an experienced truck accident attorney in Clayton County who can get the proper compensation.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a big rig driver may not have seen a motorcyclist in his blind spot when he went to change lanes. The unsafe lane change caused a fatal accident and shut down part of a highway for several hours. No charges have yet been filed against the truck driver.

If you or someone you know has been hurt by a distracted truck driver, meet with a truck accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Shane Smith. We can assist in every stage of the case including obtaining the available evidence.
