Truck accidents are different. Semitrucks traveling between Georgia and South Carolina on I-85 or through Atlanta on I-75 or I-20 are essential for moving the goods we all need. But their size and weight, and the demands of 24-hour-a-day commerce mean truck drivers are always under pressure to deliver.
Too often, this means they drive too fast or with too little sleep. With an 80,000-pound truck moving at 65 miles per hour, it doesn’t take much for a driver to lose control. For any motorists in the vicinity, that can mean catastrophic injuries and fatalities. At Glenda Mitchell Law Firm, we can help you and your family after such a crash. We understand how disorienting dealing with lawyers and insurance companies can be, and we can help.
You Need An Attorney On Your Side
Another element of truck accidents that is different is the defense. Many truck companies have dedicated teams of insurance investigators and lawyers who respond quickly after a crash.
When a truck is involved in a crash, the driver may call from the accident scene, or the truck may have real-time communications with their headquarters, which can immediately dispatch a team to the accident scene. Their job is to minimize the cost of the accident to the company.
Because of this and the complexity of a truck accident, you want your own attorney who can protect your rights for compensation and help you navigate the convoluted legal world of large trucking companies, their insurance companies and multiple other entities. We strive to answer all of your questions with personalized representation.
