Georgia Truck Accidents Involving Negligent Driving (Part A)

Negligent driving is one of the foremost causes of truck accidents in Georgia and across the United States, but in many cases, accident victims don’t receive the financial damages they are due to the chronically aggressive tactics pursued by the defense attorneys kept on retainer by truck companies and commercial vehicle insurance providers.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by the negligence or recklessness of a commercial vehicle operator, a lawyer can help you build your case for liability and negligence, and protect your legitimate claim for damages.

Accident claim and personal injury cases fall under a section of American law known as civil law. As opposed to criminal law, which deals with individuals who violate laws and perpetrate offenses against other people or the State, civil law deals with legal actions between individuals, or between individuals and organizations (or, in some cases, between organizations and organizations).

Unlike criminal law, which requires that the prosecution demonstrate the guilt of the defendant “beyond a reasonable doubt,” civil law requires only that it be shown that it’s more than likely that the defendant was responsible for the injury against the plaintiff. 

Even with this decreased burden of proof, however, commercial vehicle insurers consistently fight legitimate claims from injured victims in an ongoing battle to keep their profitability margins high. This means dismissing a claim just like yours that can make the difference between dire straits and financial and medical stability.

How a Georgia Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help

If you’ve been injured in one of the numerous truck accidents that take place on Georgia highways due to a commercial vehicle operator’s negligent driving, you should consider pursuing a liability and negligence claim against the driver. 

Contact a truck accident lawyer in Georgia to help you compile the evidence you need to demonstrably show that the other driver’s reckless behavior resulted in an accident that caused you injury, and that your resultant expenses are a direct consequence of those negligent actions.
