Atlanta, GA Truck Accident Attorneys Deal with Additional Liabilities in Trucking Accidents

Because trucks are often a danger on Georgia's highways, trucking companies are often responsible for the cause of trucking accidents. The driver, the company that owns the truck, the company that owns the trailer, the company that loaded the trailer, and sometimes all of them could have performed negligently and caused the accident. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a trucking accident with a tractor-trailer or semi-truck, it is vital that you do two things: seek medical attention immediately, and call us, the state of Georgia truck accident attorneys at the Hart Law Firm as quickly as possible.

Determining liability in trucking-related accidents can be much more complicated than it is for regular motor vehicle accidents. Since large trucks are usually owned by someone other than their driver, or even the company for which are hauling cargo, multiple parties have to get involved in determining their role in the accident. The truck driver, the owner of the truck and/or trailer, the company that leased the truck and/or trailer, and even the manufacturer of the truck, trailer, the tires, or any other parts that may have contributed to the accident in some way, and need to be examined to prove fault. In some instances, even the shipper or loader of the cargo in the trailer may have been negligent. Or, a third party maintenance company may be at fault if they were involved in maintaining any part of the truck or trailer. All of these factors create additional liabilities that can be a headache to prove—unless you hire an experienced law firm that has had success in dealing with these kinds of trucking accident cases. Hart Law Firm has the experience you need to get the compensation you deserve.
