Georgia Man Dies in Single-Vehicle Trucking Accident with the Cause Unknown


October 02, 2015

More often than not, when we learn that a trucking accident has occurred, we assume that more than one vehicle was involved. For example, many accidents involve collisions between a large semi-truck and one or more passenger vehicles. We have already seen, and continue to see each day, just how devastating trucking accidents can be when passenger vehicles are involved. However, we sometimes forget that single-vehicle trucking accidents can also occur, and the consequences can be just as disastrous.

According to an online news source, a Georgia man tragically lost his life after being involved in a single-truck accident on a Louisiana highway. As the truck driver was travelling west, he lost control of his vehicle and slammed into a tree on the right side of the highway. It is unknown at this time why the accident occurred, but there are certainly many possibilities.  As such, trucking accidents are taking place all across the country. Loved ones undoubtedly have questions as to what went wrong, and whether there is anyone to blame. They also have the option of seeking guidance from a skilled attorney, who can investigate the facts and circumstances of what happened to determine whether they are entitled to compensation.

How Can a Georgia Personal Injury Attorney Help Me?

The accident discussed above is just one example of how dangerous and unpredictable trucking accidents can be, as each accident presents unique facts. Losing a loved one is never easy, no matter how that loved one passed away. Regardless of whether someone loses his or her life, the aftermath can be difficult for the family. However, when a loved one's death is the result of an accident caused by another person or party, there may be additional questions that only an attorney can answer.

Consulting with an attorney to discuss a trucking accident is the first step to moving forward, even if you are not sure whether or not you or your loved one has a valid claim. Trucking accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents that Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys come across. An attorney is not just someone who will file a case on your behalf, but is a professional who will provide you a wealth of information as to what additional options you may have available.
