Atlanta and Marietta, Georgia Tractor Trailer & Truck Accident Attorney
Because Georgia is a gateway for interstate commerce, drivers in our State share the road with trucks and tractor trailers. When there is a driving mistake the result is often catastrophic.
State and Federal laws protect the public from dangerous trucks and tractor trailers. Vehicles must be properly maintained and all the systems, such as brakes, brake lights, the engine and all mechanical parts should be routinely tested to ensure they are operating properly. Trucking companies are also required to keeping accurate inspection and maintenance records. Similarly, there are rules that limit the amount of time truckers are permitted to continuously drive and also require drivers to take regular rest breaks.
Commercial truck accidents can occur because of:
- Improper maintenance
- Driver Fatigue
- Distracted Driving
- Overweight Trailers
- Unsafe and Unsecured Loads
