Involved in a truck accident in Georgia? – Know Your Rights – Get Mike Hostilo
Within the last decade, truck accidents have gone up by 10%. Common causes of truck accidents include “jackknifing”, braking and rollovers. Fuel fires are also more likely in truck accidents, which create a higher risk of burns than the typical range of accident injuries.
Truck accident claims in Georgia can be very complicated. Not only are state laws different, but many commercial trucks are also subject to Federal regulations. Also, there can be other parties involved in the case besides the drivers and their insurance companies. Other responsible parties can include the truck owner, manufacturer, brake maker, trucking company or cargo owner.
