Even if it seems obvious to you that truck driver negligence was the cause of your accident and injuries, you will still need to prove it. A Georgia truck accident lawyer may be able to help with the necessary evidence collection.

Here are a few ways you may be able to prove that truck driver negligence was the cause of your accident:
  • results from a breathalyzer or drug test;
  • logbook (electronic or paper);
  • black box;
  • police report;
  • testimony from witnesses;
  • photographs of the accident scene/damaged vehicles;
  • cell phone records; and
  • violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.

Any one of these types of evidence may help prove that a truck driver was negligent, such as being under the influence or talking on a cell phone while driving. Or a witness may be able to testify that he or she saw the driver cut in front of you.

There are so many different types of truck driver negligence that could result in an accident. If you were the victim, you may be entitled to compensation that addresses your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
