Tate Law Group, LLC successfully represents victims of tractor trailer collisions throughout Georgia. We gather evidence to determine the cause of the accident and pursue valid claims against negligent trucking companies and drivers who cause injury to innocent victims. The sheer size of a tractor trailer makes the outcome of a collision with a smaller vehicle incredibly devastating. Nationally, a collision between a truck and a car is ten times more likely to result in a fatality than a crash between two automobiles. If you have been injured in tractor trailer collisions in Savannah or elsewhere in Georgia, it is critical to get proper legal representation if you are seeking a settlement.
Common Causes of Tractor Trailer Collisions
Truck drivers work incredibly long hours driving cargo across the country. They are on strict deadlines to get their freight to where it is going, and as a result they drive for several hours at a time without stopping for rest and recovery. This physical and mental strain can severely impact these drivers, resulting in slower reaction times or even falling asleep at the wheel. When this happens, it is often disastrous. Multiple fatalities have occurred in and around Savannah GA over the past several years that were caused by tractor trailer driver error. While no sum of money can bring back a loved one, unfortunately, a monetary award is the only way civil law can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for the death and subsequent losses, and penalize the party or parties at fault. When tragedy strikes, we will always do our best to get justice for your loss in the eyes of the law.
The trucking company and you
If you or a loved one has been involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer, you need the help of an experienced attorney. The trucking companies have their own litigation teams and agents who go to the accident site, interview the injured, gather evidence, and begin building a defense. Do not go it alone. Your future is in the balance. At Tate Law Group, we work with teams of researchers to do our own evidence collection and witness interviews. We want to make sure all of the facts are presented in every case, and are not afraid to go up against big trucking companies when they are at fault.
