Six Steps to Protect You and Your Family From a Catastrophic Truck Accident in Georgia
What Makes Trucking Accident Litigation Especially Complicated?

Collisions caused by the fatigued driver of a semi-truck or a commercial carrier that fails to drug test a driver are more complicated than a typical car accident.

This massive weight differential means that occupants of the passenger car are especially likely to suffer devastating injuries.
