Frequently Asked Questions About Semi-Truck Accidents in Georgia
If you were involved in a vehicle collision with a semi-truck in Georgia, you likely have a lot of questions about the steps you should take next. Some answers to common questions about trucking accidents are below.
What should I do immediately after an accident with a semi-truck in Georgia?
The answer to this question will largely depend on whether you have sustained serious injuries. If you are seriously injured, your priority should be your health. If you are injured, you should seek medical attention right away. If you are able to perform a few tasks at the scene, it is wise to take photographs of any property damage and injuries and make note of the license plates and driver information of those involved. Of course, you need to also contact police so officers can create a report.
Should I hire a lawyer following a semi-truck accident?
It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney after a vehicle accident, but this is particularly important with large truck collisions. These cases can involve complicated issues of both state and federal law, as well as insurance issues and commercial carrier considerations that are not present in standard car crash cases. A lawyer can be a powerful advocate to help you navigate the complexities of your case under Georgia law.
What can I do if I have been injured?
Due to the immense size of commercial vehicles, especially when compared to passenger vehicles, trucking accidents can result in catastrophic injuries, incomprehensibly high medical expenses, long-term or even permanent lost wages, and drastic reduction in the quality of life of the victim due to serious injury.
