Our personal injury team will review your case at no cost and explain the strategy we can develop to recover compensation for you.
Identifying the Negligent Party in Your Truck Accident
Truck accident cases are complicated right from the start since multiple parties could bear liability. If our truck accident lawyer accepts your case, we can start by listening to your story in your own words. We want to hear the details of the accident from you and will review the accumulated evidence later.
Potentially liable parties include:
- The truck driver
- Their employer
- The repair shop
- The cargo loader
- Truck or parts manufacturers
- Government agency
The type of truck involved and the nature of the accident you were hurt in help us determine who to pursue for damages. We represent clients injured in jackknife accidents, rollover accidents, wide turn accidents, sideswipe accidents, and head-on collisions.
Evidence We Collect That Proves Your Right to Compensation
The state allows you to pursue compensation after you identify the at-fault party and prove the following elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
We must gather various forms of evidence to substantiate these negligence claims against the other party. Examples include:
- The accident report
- Medical records
- Medical bills
- Employment records
- Injury photos
- Accident scene photos
- Witness statements
- Accident reconstruction
We can also collect evidence you might find hard to obtain on your own, including the trucker’s logbook and the truck’s maintenance and repair records. While we build your case file, you can focus on getting better.

Compensation We Demand for Truck Accident Victims
Truck accidents cause a staggering $99 billion in emergency and other medical expenses, lost productivity, and loss of life expenses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you were hurt in a truck accident, the resulting costs can add up in no time. Fortunately, our attorney can go after compensation for the following losses:
- Ongoing medical bills
- Ongoing income loss
- Rehab and therapy
- In-home medical support
- Property damage
- Property destruction
- Diminished property value
These are economic damages, which are easily substantiated with bills, estimates, and receipts. We can also seek non-economic damages, which can include:
- Lasting disability
- Disfiguring injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If your family experienced the loss of a loved one in a truck accident, you have our heartfelt condolences. Our wrongful death attorney can recover damages for your family, including the costs you incurred for your loved one’s funeral and burial.
Time Limits the State of Georgia Imposes on Your Personal Injury Case
According to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, you generally have two years to file your personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. If your accident involved a government-owned or operated truck, you have six months to file that claim, per O.C.G.A. § 36-33-5.
Our fee structure supports the timely filing of your lawsuit and compliance with the filing deadline. As such, you can get started right away with no out-of-pocket or upfront fees. We incur all the costs of investigating and preparing your case and do not expect or accept compensation until we recover it for you.
