Dedicated Trucking And Tractor-Trailer Accident Attorneys In Atlanta
Atlanta is one of the most highly traveled cities for tractor-trailers. Many traffic crashes involve big trucks and tractor-trailers. Due to their size and weight, a trucking accident involves one of this big 18-wheeler and more often than not results in serious injury or death. Tractor-trailer drivers are deemed to be “professional drivers” and are required to operate their vehicles with a higher standard of care than other drivers. Truck drivers and the companies they work for are required to follow certain rules and regulations that are in place to protect other motorists.
Not every attorney who handles car wreck cases knows how to effectively handle a wreck involving a tractor-trailer. If you have been injured in a wreck involving a big truck or tractor-trailer, you should hire a lawyer who is experienced in handling these types of cases.
At the Atlanta law firm of Houck | Reynolds, LLC, we have the experience you deserve and we will work hard to protect your rights if you or someone you love has been injured in a wreck with a big truck or tractor-trailer.
Aggressively Pursuing Justice For Injury Victims
When a big truck or tractor-trailer slams into a line of cars or causes a catastrophic wreck, there is a reason why this wreck happened. Our job is to find to find out why, preserve the evidence and the rights of those who were injured. Not only is the truck driver at fault, but truck driver fatigue, brake failure and other factors often point to the trucking company who poorly maintains their vehicles or who puts drivers on the road in harsh conditions. While many aspects of truck accidents are similar to car wrecks, there is a different set of rules that apply to professional drivers. Not every personal injury attorney understands or even knows about these rules.
A violation of these rules can create serious consequences for the truck driver and their employer. Knowing these rules and knowing how to prove a truck driver or company is in habitual violator of these rules is the key to proving liability and maximizing the recovery for injured victims. We know how to access the records and use them accordingly.
