Atlanta Semi, Commercial Truck, and 18 Wheeler Accident Attorneys

Commercial truck accidents are a common cause of injury and death in Atlanta

Commercial vehicle accidents can result from a variety of factors, including the carelessness and recklessness of truck drivers. Truck accident claims are more challenging and complicated, because vehicle manufacturers, distributors, retailers, governmental agencies, and truck drivers are all parties that may be held liable for commercial vehicle accidents.

Some of the most common causes of Atlanta commercial truck crashes include:

  • Mechanical defects: This can include defective electrical systems, wheels and tires, brake systems, repair and upkeep neglect, and more.
  • Driver error: Drivers are required to operate commercial vehicles with 100% of their ability at all times. Unfortunately, issues like intoxication, fatigue, and poor training often result in commercial vehicle accidents.
  • Improper cargo loading: If the cargo on a commercial truck isn't loaded correctly and shifts during travel, the stability of the truck is jeopardized.
  • Environmental issues: Road maintenance and design can also be factors in commercial vehicle accidents.

Semi truck accidents happen all over the Atlanta Metro region:

According to the Atlanta Regional Commission, the residents and visitors of the greater metropolitan Atlanta region can expect a huge increase in commercial truck traffic over the next few decades, thanks in large part to a boom in the region's manufacturing and warehousing industries. 

Modern semitrailers for the most part do a good job of keeping passenger vehicles from sliding underneath them, greatly increasing the chances of surviving a crash into the back of a large truck, recent tests by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety show. But in crashes involving only a small portion of the truck's rear, most trailers fail to prevent potentially deadly underride.
