Valdosta Truck Accident Attorneys

Representing Accident Victims Throughout Georgia

When a massive 18-wheeler or tractor-trailer collides with a car, the results are frequently catastrophic for those inside the smaller vehicle. 

Unfortunately, severe personal injuries, permanent disability, and death are common results of collisions between semi-trucks and passenger vehicles. In the blink of an eye, lives are changed forever. 

When you retain the Georgia interstate trucking lawyers at the Studstill Firm, LLP to handle your case, our Valdosta truck accident attorneys will take immediate action to protect your legal rights. This includes a prompt and thorough investigation of the crash, which is critical to success. 

If you or your family have been affected by a commercial truck accident, our team at Studstill Firm, LLP is ready to hear from you. Call (229) 515-8900 today.

Trucking Accident Victims Have a Disadvantage

In our Georgia commercial trucking accident law practice, we have seen too many instances where the trucking company, their insurance provider, and their lawyers rush to the accident scene before the damaged vehicles are even towed away. 

They are there to gather evidence to dispute a valid claim and to try to limit the amount of money they will have to pay to accident victims. This already puts the injured and their families at a disadvantage and emphasizes the importance of having an experienced attorney on your side.

Our Valdosta trucking accident attorneys can help you pursue compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral costs
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

We will conduct our own thorough investigation into the accident, and we have all the resources necessary to fight the trucking company and their insurers… and win. This includes the best accident reconstructionists and medical experts, as well as nearly four decades of experience litigating serious personal injury cases involving trucks.

Main Causes of Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are caused by a variety of factors, though many involve some sort of negligence on the part of the truck driver or his or her employer. Some of the main causes of truck accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while distracted
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver inexperience
  • Disobeying traffic laws
  • Overloading cargo
  • Inadequate vehicle maintenance

Settlement Packages: A Scheme to Watch Out For

Trucking companies and their well-trained adjusters and attorneys are very good at minimizing the amount they pay to accident victims. 

They go to great lengths to appear that they are doing the right thing, are on your side, and that what they are offering is fair. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case.

Below is the most common scheme we see:

  • The insurance company adjusters will contact the victims within days of the collision and get valuable information before the victims have a chance to talk with an attorney that specializes in truck accident litigation.
  • The insurance company doesn’t want the injured victims to hire a lawyer, so they tell them they will receive a settlement package which will provide total compensation for their injuries and property damage...
  • But the settlement package keeps getting delayed over and over again until the victims receive nothing.

Why are the insurance and trucking companies doing this? The primary reason is that they are just buying time so that important deadlines pass. 

Current laws only require trucking companies and drivers of big rigs to preserve certain documents after a crash for a short period of time—usually only about six months. Once these deadlines pass, they can legally destroy critical documents that would be used to support the victims’ claims.

Hiring the Right Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyer

Our Valdosta truck accident lawyers are ready to help. We can help you secure all important documents, including the driver’s logs, training received, past accident or traffic violation history, and truck maintenance records.

Truck accident consultations are always done at no charge at the Studstill Firm, LLP, and all information is kept strictly confidential. We also work on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay nothing unless we win your case through settlement or verdict.
