Atlanta Trucking Accident Attorney

Commercial truck drivers face significant, and often unreasonable, pressures from trucking companies to deliver goods in a timely fashion. Even though the trucking industry is highly regulated, trucking companies and drivers may skirt these rules in an attempt to drive more miles. Other drivers and passengers may pay a heavy price for these actions.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck crash, it is absolutely essential to work closely with an experienced lawyer. From our office in Atlanta, we at The Goldman Firm protect the rights of people across Georgia.

Taking Decisive Action For Victims Of Trucking Company Negligence

Because 18-wheelers (or semi tractor-trailers) are so much larger than other vehicles, these accidents are much more likely to cause catastrophic injuries or even death. In addition, truck injury cases involve many legal obstacles that are different from other motor vehicle wrecks. Our attorney, Steven Goldman, has more than 25 years of experience representing people injured in all types of motor vehicle crashes, including truck accidents. As a result, our firm knows how to create a strong claim for your damages.

Immediate Action After A Truck Accident Can Offer Real Benefits

It is important to act as quickly as possible after an accident. For example, trucking companies and truck drivers are required to keep detailed records on the number of hours driven, when a driver took a rest, and other information. In addition, the condition of the truck may contain key information about the accident. Trucking companies are only required to keep this information for a limited period of time. If you do not bring a lawsuit and ask to secure this evidence, these records could be destroyed.

Additionally, by acting quickly you can avoid taking actions that could compromise your legal case. The trucking company's goal is to protect its bottom line, not to ensure that you recover fair compensation. When you work with our law firm after a truck injury, we will take all the necessary steps to give you the best chance of recovering full compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and other damages.
