Truck Driver Suffers Tragic Fate as Log Truck Crushes Him


August 31, 2015

Trucking accidents do not typically involve a situation where a truck driver is not in the driver's seat. Such accidents are few and far between, but when they happen, that aftermath has the potential to be deadly. A Mississippi man experienced something that many truck drivers do not think about. As he he was securing the load of logs on the back of his truck, the driver got trapped under the back tires of the truck and was tragically run over, according to a local news report.

At the time of this accident, another truck was pulling the deceased man's truck out of the mud. This horrific accident is one that certainly stunned the log truck driver's co-workers and employer. Such a bizarre accident is not one that you think could happen to you or someone you know. However when this type of accident occurs, it is sometimes difficult to place blame on either the victim or anyone else, unless it can be proven that someone else is at fault for causing the accident. In this particular case, the log truck driver may have just been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but a thorough investigation of the situation could prove otherwise.

How a Georgia Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You

Many accidents can seem cut and dry when there is enough evidence to clearly place blame on one or more individuals. When an uncommon accident occurs like this logging trucking accident, victims and their loved ones likely wonder if there is anything they can do to recover for what has happened to them. Regardless of how an accident occurs, there can be options available. However, the only way to determine what your options are is to discuss the matter with an attorney who handles automobile accident cases on a regular basis. An attorney can evaluate the facts and circumstances of your case as well as take the necessary steps to protect your rights.

There is simply too much at stake when it comes to injured victims and/or the death of a loved one. Injured victims who survive serious accidents can have debilitating injuries that result in physical and/or mental impairment, the inability to work, daily medical care, and the likelihood that they may never return to their normal condition in the future. These consequences are difficult to face, but a qualified attorney can provide you with the information you need to move forward. While there is never a guarantee that an injured victim and/or a deceased loved one will receive compensation for his or her suffering, it is always worth the time to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about your situation.
