October 10, 2010

We have all had the experience where we are driving down the road when a vehicle comes flying up behind our car weaving in and out of traffic.

Trucking Industry Push for Bigger Heavier Trucks Means More Trucking Accident Fatalities

October 09, 2010

One of the most significant risks that are created by large tractor-trailers is the danger their weight and size pose. A fully loaded commercial big rig can exceed 80,000 pounds, which makes every trucking accident a potentially fatal collision. Small passenger vehicles have little chance when subjected to the force and impact of a semi-truck. Despite this inherent risk, the trucking industry is often found to be overloading trucks, which magnifies the risk by making trucks more difficult to control and more dangerous when a driver loses control.

A person whose injuries are related to an accident or intentional actions of another may have a claim for compensation for their injuries. If you have been injured, it is important that you seek immediate legal advice, because legal time deadlines apply to all cases.  Additionally, it is more challenging and sometimes impossible to obtain evidence and help from witnesses if you delay. The time limits that govern when a lawsuit must be filed are called "statutes of limitations." Courts almost never forgive the failure to file a lawsuit before a statute of limitations expires.

The auto industry has known for years that 15-passenger vans pose an enormous risk of rolling over leading to an extremely high rate of fatalities.

Georgia Trucking Accidents: The Impact of Overloaded Trucks

October 04, 2010

Tractor-trailers are the most dangerous vehicles on the road because of their massive size and weight. While most truck drivers are well trained and careful drivers, there is no question that fully loaded commercial trucks are harder to maneuver, require increased braking time, and provide far less visibility than other vehicles on the road. All of these factors combined with the massive size and weight differential between a passenger vehicle and a semi-truck means that trucking accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries and fatalities.

October 01, 2010

The consequences of being involved in a car accident can be overwhelming physically, emotionally, and financially. It is not uncommon that determining the driver who is at fault is a matter of dispute. Sometimes both drivers share some degree of fault for an accident.
