Commercial Truck Accidents Damage More Than Property
Any auto accident can leave victims injured and suffering, but accidents involving commercial vehicles and trucks tend to create more damage to both property and the lives of passengers. If you were a victim of a truck driver’s negligence, you may have suffered severe injuries. On top of that, you may have to deal with the driver’s employer, as well as the insurance company. These cases can become quickly complex. You need an experienced legal team on your side to navigate the legal hurdles involved.
The lead attorney at Margaret Gettle Washburn, P.C., has over 35 years of legal experience. We help personal injury victims throughout the Atlanta area. Our firm understands how to handle the companies involved in these cases, whether through negotiation or the courtroom. We are not afraid to pursue your case aggressively, taking it to trial, if needed.
Complicated Liability Issues
Truck accidents can involve many different parties, including the drivers of the vehicles, the company that hired the truck driver, the insurance companies and possibly even companies involved with loading or manufacturing the truck. Liability may rest with any of these parties, which can quickly complicate your injury case. We understand these liability issues and know how to pursue the correct party or parties to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Were You Seriously Injured?
If your collision involved a semitruck or tractor-trailer, your car probably took the brunt of the damage in your accident, leaving you vulnerable to serious injuries. We often see catastrophic injuries as a result of truck accidents, including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord damage
- Neck and back injuries
- Fatal injuries
These injuries may need extensive medical care far into the future, and you may not be able to return to your current job. Insurance companies will try to convince you to settle quickly, before you may even know the extent of your injuries. We will fight to make sure all of your needed care is covered, and your future is secure.
