Atlanta Trucking Accident Lawyers

Here to Help After You’ve Been Injured by a Truck

While car accidents are the most common type of roadway accident, trucking accidents are a different—and often more catastrophic—incident altogether. Tractor-trailers are many times larger and weigh many times more than your typical passenger vehicle, which means they hold many more times the potential to inflict damage when driven negligently.

At Wood Craig & Avery, we know how seriously truck accident-related injuries can impact your life. In addition to the physical damages, many people experience anxiety, depression, and symptoms of PTSD. It is our mission to fight for everything victims of injury deserve after an accident.

Call our truck accident attorneys in Atlanta today at (404) 800-1837. We offer free initial consultations.

How to Fight Trucking & Transportation Companies

Truck accidents are usually more complex than typical car accidents because truckers will have an entire company fighting to limit their liability. An accident can seriously disrupt business, and these companies will do anything they can to minimize their responsibility to the injured. But in many cases, it is the inconsiderate practices of these companies that lead to their drivers getting into accidents.

There are many state and federal regulations that all truckers must follow. Unfortunately, pressures from employers to make deliveries ahead of schedule will tempt drivers into violating these rules. Some companies will even withhold payment from a driver until a delivery is made, pressuring them into breaking safety regulations.

All truckers are required to adhere to the following federal regulations:

  • Truckers cannot drive more than 70 hours in 8 consecutive days
  • Truckers who work 70 hours a week must rest for 34 consecutive hours
  • Truckers can only drive 11 hours out of a 14-hour workday
  • Truckers must take 10 hours off duty if they have an 11-hour shift
  • Truckers must maintain a log recording all time spent at work, resting, and behind the wheel
  • Truckers cannot consume alcohol or mind-altering substances for 8 hours before driving

These are all things that should be investigated by your attorney when collecting evidence for your injury claim.
