TRACTOR TRAILER ACCIDENT
Georgia Truck Accident Attorney
Tough Representation for Tough Accident Cases in Georgia
Trucks pose an inevitable hazard on public roads due to their large size and weight. A semi-truck or big rig can easily weigh 80,000 pounds, translating to 30 times the size of average vehicles. While trucks are involved in fewer accidents per 100 million road miles than conventional vehicles, the accidents they do cause are more likely to be fatal accidents.

What Causes Most Truck Accidents?
Crashes with large trucks are often caused by factors such as:
Dangerous driving for road/weather conditions
Veering off the edge of the road
Moving cargo/cargo coming loose and falling off
Driver exhaustion/falling asleep behind the wheel
How Often Do Truck Accidents Occur?
Statistics from the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) reveal that:
Trucks move 11 billion tons of freight every year
Trucks haul over $8.3 trillion in goods
Approximately 500,000 truck accidents happen every year
In 2010, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, over 3,400 people were killed in accidents with large trucks, and 72% of those victims were the occupants of vehicles other than the trucks involved in the crash. This means that truck accidents disproportionately endanger other drivers
