Trucking Accidents Can Leave Victims And Their Families Struggling For Years To Come

Sharing the road with semitrailers and other commercial haulers can be intimidating. These vehicles are big, and their drivers do not have the best visibility. When trucking accidents occur, victims and their family members may be left struggling physically, financially and emotionally for years following the event. At Brown Barnwell, we believe achieving relief is possible.

What Are Some Common Causes Of Trucking Accidents In Atlanta?

Trucking accidents happen for a number of reasons. Some of them include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Truck driver distraction
  • Overly aggressive truck drivers
  • Impaired truck drivers
  • Improperly trained truck drivers
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
  • Improperly maintained trucks
  • Equipment failure

If truck drivers and their employers would pay attention and follow federal safety guidelines, most of these issues could be avoided.

Common Truck Accident Injuries

Due to the sheer size and weight of larger commercial vehicles, the damage that they can do is monumental. Victims who survive trucking accidents are often left with significant injuries. Commonly seen injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Paralysis — partial or complete
  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain

Truck accident injuries are difficult from which to recover. Some victims may never fully recover. At Brown Barnwell, we understand that the cost of current and future care following a truck accident can put victims and their families in an economic bind. Our attorney is here and ready to assist you in seeking maximum compensation for your losses by negotiating the matter out of court or litigating the matter if necessary.
