Types of Truck Accidents
Throughout the United States, and especially in Georgia, trucks are a primary way goods are shipped and transported. Unfortunately, because trucks are so much larger than other vehicles on the road, when an accident occurs, the results are usually severe and tragic.
No matter what type of accident it is or how it occurred, it is essential to seek out proper medical treatment and knowledgeable legal representation to protect your rights and interests. At McAleer Law, we have a thorough understanding of how to properly value a truck accident case based on how the accident occurred and the injuries or loss of a loved one suffered as a result.
Our firm handles all types of truck accident cases, including accidents resulting from:
- Tire blowouts
- Brake failure
- Underride accident
- Override accident
- Overloaded trailer
- Equipment malfunction
- Defective maintenance
- Runaway trailers
We also handle cases that involve driver fatigue, a truck operator who is under the influence, or drivers that have not been properly trained. We know how to prove liability, and we know who to name as parties to a lawsuit. In a truck accident case, it is important to research carefully the owner of the truck, the company that employs the driver, who services the rig, and who has contracted to use that trucking company.
Additionally, our lawyers know how to effectively use accident reconstruction to prove how the accident happened, who was at fault, and how the specifics of the truck accident caused injuries or death. We routinely represent families pursuing wrongful death litigation, and we know how to pursue maximum compensation for every type of injury incurred as a result of any type of truck accident.
When our firm represents you, we will not only deal with opposing counsel and all interested parties, but we will act on your behalf when helping you deal with your own insurer. If you are having problems with receiving payment for legitimate claims, we can also help you engage in filing a bad faith insurance case.
