Large commercial trucks transport thousands of tons of goods and other materials from place to place in Georgia every day. While these vehicles can take a variety of forms, among the most dangerous are trucks that are carrying double trailers.  As a result, drivers who drive double trailer trucks require specialized training as well as an endorsement to the commercial driver’s license (CDL). When double trailer trucks are involved in accidents caused by driver negligence, victims can often recover for their injuries and other losses through a Georgia personal injury claim. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping truck accident victims recover, and work hard to obtain the maximum possible settlement or award for each client we represent.
