Atlanta Truck Accident Attorney


 

Truck driver's are under tremendous pressure to deliver their loads within a given time frame. Many of these driver's are under further financial pressure to perform as many loads as possible in a given period. These same pressures increase the likelihood that a  truck driver will succumb to speeding and to driving while tired. In addition to the increased incentive for risky behavior with truck driver's on public roads, there are the inherent increased risks in these vehicles themselves. Trucks are obviously much larger than the average passenger vehicle and hence their weight and blind-spots increase accordingly. All of the above has led to both the federal government and the Georgia state government to stringently regulate the trucking industry by creating rules and standards that must be followed in order to increase safety.



To summarize, the most common reasons for an Atlanta truck accident are:

  • Speeding to meet a delivery deadline
  • Driving tired for long periods of time
  • Driving under stressful time constraints
  • Defective components and mechanical failure
  • Truck overloading
  • Size and maneuverability of the truck
