You Absolutely Need A Lawyer After Experiencing A Truck Accident
We don’t need to tell you that an accident with a truck is absolutely devastating to your life. When you are in a truck accident in Georgia, it is important to get the best care available (we help with this) and to get the best legal representation available (that’s us!)
Legal battles against trucking companies and their insurance comapnies are no small feat, but we will get you the money you need to get healthy and happy again and compensate somewhat in justice when that is not possible.
You Are Our Priority
Allen Turner Law will always tell you the first thing you need to do is get medical attention. Get there promptly by any means possible.
Make sure the police are called. It is important that there is a police report completed for a couple of reasons. First, it is important that information is collected from all the parties and witnesses to the collision. Second, although the person at fault might feel terrible and be apologetic at the scene of the accident, people tend to change their mind later. Whether they fear repercussions from the insurance carrier or other reasons, it happens. It is good, then, to have them provide a statement to the police officer. If their story changes later, it will be less credible.
Regardless of everything else, make sure you seek medical treatment, even if you feel “OK”. Often in vehicle accidents, your adrenaline is pumping so hard that you won’t notice your injury, it is part of the fight/flight response. It is possible you have a head or neck injury without even realizing it.
So it is important see a doctor. With that visit also comes critical documentation that you were concerned enough about your injuries to seek that medical attention.
Truck Accidents In Georgia Are Too Common
Truck accidents can be a devastating turn of events in your life. If you’ve been in one, you are aware of that already.
We at Allen Turner Law have discovered that truck drivers often go long periods of time without a break. Although they are supposed to be regulated to break more often, they are often ignored when your livelihood is based on miles driven and timed deliveries. Some truckers even illegally drive for over 24 hours without pause! That’s nuts!
Countless hours on the road will take a toll on anyone’s ability to focus, concentrate, and remain alert. Now, complicate that by the large size of their trucks (up to 80,000 pounds!) and their incredible maneuverability disadvantage and there is deadly trouble brewing.
Our truck accident attorneys know from years of experience what evidence to seek out. We search out logbooks, receipts and other telltale evidence to look for in the discovery process.
