How a Lawyer Can Help You

How We Handle Truck Cases

Find out just a few of the many steps our attorneys take to ensure your truck collision case is as strong as possible.

Truck Crash Investigations

After a truck accident, preserving evidence is critical to winning your case. Trucking companies are notorious for sending their own investigators to the accident scene. Often, critical evidence–whether by intention or accident– is destroyed during this process. Armed with their own team of lawyers, the trucking company is near impossible to take on without your own legal team. When you call Montlick, we take all necessary steps—including investigating the scene, getting court-mandated preservation of evidence and more—to ensure the evidence you need to win is preserved, safeguarded, and leveraged.

Evidence we gather can include:

Preservation of the vehicle: Preserving the truck involved in the accident is essential. The vehicle should be kept in the same condition as it was at the time of the accident. It is crucial to ensure that the vehicle is not repaired or put back into service until it has been thoroughly examined by an expert.

Electronic data: Commercial trucks are equipped with electronic devices (black boxes) that record various data, including speed, braking, and other information. This data is critical in determining the cause of the accident. It is essential to preserve this data, which can be downloaded from the vehicle’s electronic control module (ECM).

Maintenance records: Maintenance records can provide vital information about the truck’s condition at the time of the accident. This includes information about the vehicle’s brakes, tires, and other mechanical systems. It is essential to obtain and preserve these records quickly as they can help determine if any maintenance issues contributed to the accident.

Insurance documents: Insurance documents are also crucial in preserving evidence in truck accident cases. These documents can provide information about the trucking company, the driver, and the coverage that is available. It is important to obtain and preserve these documents as they can help determine liability and damages.

The effects of a truck accident can be long-lasting, and it’s essential to understand how these accidents impact those involved.

Physical Injuries Truck accidents often result in severe physical injuries, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, burns and more. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment, often including surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. Victims may need to take time off work to recover, or lose their ability to work altogether, which can result in lost income and financial hardship.

Emotional Trauma Truck accidents can also cause emotional trauma, such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Victims may experience flashbacks of the accident or have trouble sleeping, eating, or functioning in their daily lives. This emotional trauma can make it difficult to work, maintain relationships, and enjoy life.

Financial Losses Truck accidents can also result in significant financial losses for those involved. Medical bills can quickly add up, and victims may also face other expenses, such as vehicle repair or replacement costs. If a victim is unable to work due to their injuries, they may also lose income and struggle to pay bills.

Loss of Life In the most severe cases, truck accidents can result in fatalities. When a loved one is killed in a truck accident, family members may be left with significant emotional trauma, financial hardship, and the burden of funeral and burial expenses.

Truck Crash Investigations
The Danger of Semi Trucks on Macon Roads

Truck accidents are a common occurrence in Macon, Georgia, and can result in a wide range of injuries for those involved. The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks make them more dangerous than other vehicles on the road, and accidents involving these vehicles can cause severe injuries and even fatalities.

Even when you’re doing your best to drive safely around big rigs, the danger looms immense. With America’s truck driver shortage, the average long-haul trucker drives 60 hours per week and covers more than 107,000 miles per year. And a lot of those miles are through country roads like the ones that wind through Bibb County.

Unlike a typical crash between two drivers, an accident with a truck means you could have lawyers from one or several companies trying to get you to settle for less than you deserve. When your daily commute, a road trip, or just a casual summer drive turns into a nightmare after a collision with a big rig, you need a law firm who knows what it takes to win.™  You need Montlick.
