Because of the disparity in size between large tractor-trailers and passenger vehicles, a collision with a tractor-trailer can have serious and deadly consequences. About one in eight motor vehicle accident fatalities in the United States involves a tractor-trailer collision. For those fortunate to survive a collision with a big truck, they often sustain serious injuries requiring extensive treatment. Regrettably, many tractor-trailer collisions are due to careless drivers or an irresponsible trucking company that failed to implement and follow proper safety standards.
If you or a loved one were involved in a wreck with a tractor-trailer, it is important that you speak with an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
