In order to prove that truck accidents are caused by negligent driving, it must be shown that the truck driver violated the duty of care to you and other drivers on the road. This duty arises simply by virtue of his being on the road and sharing the road with you and others.
This can be done by showing that the way the driver acted was inconsistent or reckless by the standards of a reasonable person, or that the driver violated a traffic law. Once it’s been shown that the duty of care was breached, it must be proven that the resultant accident caused you injury for which you ought to be compensated.
If you or someone you care for has been injured as a result of the reckless or negligent driving of a commercial vehicle operator, contact an Atlanta truck accident lawyer who will dedicate their energy and experience to recovering compensation for your:
- medical bills;
- lost wages; and
- damaged property.
