Berkeley Lake, Georgia Truck Accident
There are various possible defendants in a truck crash that causes fatal or serious injury. The truck itself may have an issue, such as under or over inflated tires or bad brakes. The truck might have a defective part which caused a failure that made it difficult to drive. In that case, the manufacturer of the part might be a part of the litigation. The truck owner, which might well be a large company, can be responsible for a failure to properly maintain the truck. Perhaps the brakes failed or the lights were not functioning properly. If, after a full investigation, it is found that there is some sort of maintenance failure, the trucking company can well be named as a defendant in a personal injury case involving a truck crash. The driver might have been driving after too many hours on the road. There are mandatory logs that could reveal this. Perhaps the driver was not well trained and failed to handle a situation encountered on the road that caused the truck to hit your vehicle.
When one or more of these causes or one or more of these possible defendants causes your injury, you have rights. If you have been harmed in a truck crash the injuries can be very severe. Some injuries can result from a car being caught or dragged by a big rig. Some injuries can result from a direct impact from the truck colliding with your vehicle. Other injuries might be the result of a jack knifed truck that pushes your vehicle into oncoming traffic. Perhaps a wheel has come off the truck and hits a windshield. Perhaps a piece of the truck hits your vehicle in a way that causes you harm. These things happen, they are real and they can in fact, be fatal or very very harmful.
Regardless of the cause of the crash, the injuries can be catastrophic so that medical attention, physical therapies and rehabilitation may be needed for some time.
