Who Is Liable for a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, it is important to work with a lawyer who can help you determine who is liable for the crash. In many cases, the truck driver and/or the trucking company are at least partially responsible for the collision.

However, there are a number of other parties who could be at fault, as well, including:

  • The truck owner
  • The company that loaded the truck
  • The company that leased the truck
  • The truck’s manufacturer and/or distributor
  • The company that performed maintenance on the truck

A thorough investigation of the accident and all the parties involved is necessary to determine who is liable for the crash. Our Marietta truck accident lawyer has the experience and resources to conduct this type of investigation and to build a strong case for you.

What Compensation Is Available After a Truck Accident?

If you were injured in a truck accident, you may be facing a long road to recovery. You may be unable to work, and you may be dealing with significant pain and suffering. You may also be facing a mountain of medical bills.

Georgia law allows you to seek compensation for these and other damages if you can prove that someone else was responsible for the crash. Our Marietta truck accident attorney can help you fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed for all your damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income/wages
  • Lost future earnings
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Reduced quality of life

Truck accident victims can also seek compensation for their property damage. If a loved one died in a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your loved one’s medical bills, funeral expenses, and more. You may also be entitled to compensation for your loss of your loved one’s companionship, care, and financial support.

How Long Do I Have to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Georgia?

In Georgia, you generally have two years from the date of a truck accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party or parties.

There are a number of exceptions that could shorten or lengthen these deadlines. For example, in some cases, you may have more time to file a lawsuit if you did not discover your injuries right away.

To ensure that you do not miss any filing deadlines, it is important to work with a truck accident lawyer who can help you understand the specific deadlines that apply to your case.

What Should I Do After a Truck Accident?

After a truck accident, there are several steps you should take to protect your health, your safety, and your right to recover compensation.

Here’s what you should do:

  • Call 911 and ask for a police officer and an ambulance.
  • Wait for the police to arrive at the scene and fill out a report. Be sure to provide the officer with an accurate and detailed description of what happened.
  • Seek immediate medical attention, even if you do not think you were seriously injured.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders and attend all follow-up appointments.
  • Do not admit fault for the accident.
  • Do not apologize for the accident.

  • Do not post about the accident on social media.
