Oconee County Teenager Seriously Injured in Georgia Dump Truck Accident


March 14, 2016

As a mother was taking her daughters to school on an early March morning, she was struck by a dump truck that resulted in life-threatening injuries suffered by the mother's teenage daughter. All other occupants of both the van the mother was driving and the dump truck survived the accident without significant injuries. This tragic accident might have occurred for a variety of reasons that are unknown at this time. When it comes to a trucking accident like this one, it can take a substantial amount of time to get to the root cause of the accident in order to determine if anyone's injuries were the fault of another person or party.

Why it is Important to Act Quickly to Speak with a Georgia Trucking Accident Attorney

Because the cause of this dump truck accident is unclear, it is crucial that injured individuals involved in a trucking accident seek the advice of one of our truck accident attorneys who can help determine whether or not someone else was at fault for causing the resulting injuries. It is undisputed that the force and strength of a dump truck like the one involved in the Oconee County accident has the potential to cause serious harm if involved in an accident. As such, regardless of who might be at fault for causing a Georgia Trucking Accident, it is unquestionable that the resulting injuries could be fatal.
