Truck Accidents and Improper Maintentance

,h2>Atlanta, GA Truck Accident Lawyers Help Clients Pursue Justice

Many of the people who live in the state of Georgia are continually surprised to see the amount of truck traffic on our roadways. The transportation of goods is big business along the Georgia highways, and this, unfortunately, often results in truck accidents.

Tractor-trailer trucks and semis are heavy, and are often overloaded with cargo that should be secure and within prescribed weight parameters: but just because they should be, does not mean that they are. Sometimes, the trucks have not been maintained, which can cause dangerous blow-outs and malfunctions on the road. When it comes to accidents involving commercial trucks, any accident victim and his or her family who wishes to collect damages needs a persuasive and experienced attorney who can win against these big trucking companies, their attorneys, and their potentially tricky insurance adjusters.

As Atlanta trucking accident personal injury attorneys at the Hart Law Firm can attest, they have spent years representing Atlanta and all of Georgia-area truck accident survivors and the families of victims who lost their lives in crashes.

Let us prove it.

What Can Lead to Truck Accidents

Many truck accidents happen as a result of the commercial vehicle either being overloaded past capacity, or are due to a failure to properly maintain the vehicle. A few of the issues surrounding overloading and maintenance are:

  • Improper lighting of the trailer and cargo
  • Inadequate covering of debris
  • Holes, cracks or openings that cause cargo to come out
  • Poor supervision
  • Defective vehicle parts
  • Defective tires
  • Faulty tire pressure
  • Poorly maintained brakes
  • Inadequate training of drivers
  • Height violations

If you believe that this was the reason for the accident, it is crucial that you contact
