There are many ways that a truck driver may be at fault, and early intervention is the key to learning exactly how. Immediate involvement by a knowledgeable semi-truck accident attorney is key to maximizing your settlement recovery as compensation.
The moments after a truck accident are critical to protecting yourself. According to the National Safety Council, in 2020, over 107,000 large trucks were involved in crashes resulting in injury. Of those, over 4,000 involved a fatality. That’s why immediately following an accident an insurance company team is collecting information on you and your accident.
Early intervention by a knowledgeable semi-truck accident attorney is a key to maximizing settlement recovery as compensation. For example, the law requires that semi-truck drivers maintain a logbook for inspection for a limited period after a semi-truck accident. Examination of the truck driver’s log may reveal the cause of the accident to be lack of sleep, overdriving, or other forms of driver negligence. Finding the cause of the trucking accident goes a long way. Often, this results in being compensated with a settlement award.
If you’ve suffered personal injuries as a result of a truck accident, a claim should be brought for your injuries. Because incidents don’t always happen during business hours, the best Atlanta truck accident lawyers at Akin & Tate are available 24/7, 365 days per year. Let us help you today.
