If you have been injured in an accident in Georgia with a truck, not only can the driver be held negligent but so can the trucking company if it violated federal rules or regulations.

It's possible the trucking company may also be liable for damages related to your injuries, which may entitle you to recover a significantly higher amount in compensation. A Peachtree City personal injury lawyer will provide an estimate on your possible compensation amount.

Trucking companies have strict standards when it comes to hiring, training and supervising their drivers. In addition, they are responsible for making sure that the trucks their drivers operate are safe.

It is also the responsibility of the trucking company to make sure that truck drivers' schedules allow for ample rest and sleep time.
There are guidelines on how many hours a truck can be driven each day.

Since a smaller vehicle like a passenger car is simply no match for a big rig, trucking companies should also do all they can to prevent catastrophic injuries in an accident in Georgia. Providing protection that prevents serious injuries in an override or underride accident is just one example.

A Peachtree City personal injury lawyer can help determine if the trucking company was negligent and can assist in filing your Georgia personal injury claim.
