How can a truck accident lawyer help?
Have you been injured by a truck? Do you need legal advice on dealing with trucking and insurance companies? Are you stressed about getting repair and medical bills paid? Do you need help with litigation and negotiating settlements?
Powers Law Group, a truck accident law firm in Macon, GA handles all types of tractor trailer truck accident cases, including those that involve:
- Detaching trailers
- Product liability
- Drunk or fatigued drivers
- Negligent hiring practices
- Excessive speed
- Drivers falsify log books
The Federal government requires tractor-trailer and other large truck operators to acquire a commercial drivers license and undergo limited drug and alcohol testing. However, many truck safety advocates question the effectiveness of the licensing and testing program.
These large vehicles are legally permitted to haul up to 80,000 pounds or 40 tons of cargo. Consider that a typical passenger car weighs only about 2,000 to 4,000 pounds and it is easy to understand just why these accidents can be so catastrophic.
Every year, nearly 500,000 large trucks (also known as tractor-trailers, semis, semi trucks, 18-wheelers, big rigs) are involved in traffic accidents in the United States. Approximately 5,000 of these accidents involving semi trailer trucks result in fatalities. In addition, many cases are won when the driver operates the vehicle for more hours than logged in the driver’s book. The personal injury attorneys at Powers Law Group are your truck accident lawyers in Macon, GA and they are there to help you.
