Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyer

Atlanta, Georgia, with a population of about 416,474, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 85, US 20, GA 19, GA 29 and GA 41, where accidents are waiting to happen. The men who drive those big rigs work under pressure. Many work long hours and are forced to deal with demands from employers and the stress of constantly being on the road. It is easy to understand how the truck routes mentioned here can become deadly. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Georgia. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
