How Will an Attorney Help This Case?

Truck accident cases can become very complicated in Alpharetta, which is why it is crucial to have a skilled attorney helping you through this process. There are often many parties involved in truck accident cases, all of which typically have more resources at their disposal than the actual injury victim. A truck accident lawyer can help level the playing field.

An attorney can use the resources of their office to fully investigate every claim, which includes obtaining all evidence needed to prove liability. In these cases, that can include:

  • The truck’s electronic control module (ECM)
  • The truck driver’s electronic logging device (ELD)
  • Mobile device records
  • Video surveillance from nearby cameras
  • Photographs taken after the accident
  • Truck company safety records
  • Truck driver safety records
  • Statements from eyewitnesses

Additionally, an attorney will ensure their client is evaluated by a trusted medical professional who can fully assess the situation and help properly calculate total losses.

Truck Accidents Often Cause Catastrophic Injuries

Data available from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the agency responsible for regulating the safety of these vehicles, shows us that a fully loaded commercial truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. When compared to a traditional passenger vehicle that averages approximately 4,000, we can see why these incidents often lead to such devastating injuries for those involved.

At Butler Prather LLP, our Athens truck accident attorneys have helped those who have sustained the following in these incidents:

  • Broken and dislocated bones

  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord trauma with paralysis
  • Other back or neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Open head wounds

Data available from the National Safety Council shows that there were more than 5,000 trucks involved in fatal collisions and more than 118,000 trucks involved in injury collisions during the latest reporting year across the United States. These incidents occur in a variety of ways, often due to the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company. It is crucial for drivers and companies to uphold the highest safety standards to ensure that everybody on the roadway is safe around these vehicles.
