Common Forms of Truck Accident Liability in an Atlanta Injury Claim (Part B)
Injuries that could arise from a truck accident include paralysis, limb amputations, severe burns and organ damage. Costly, long-term medical treatment can be necessary, so you will need the guidance of an Atlanta personal injury to pinpoint truck accident liability and hold all negligent parties accountable.
More Types of Truck Accident Liability
Other, less common types of truck accident liability:
- Impairment is another form of truck accident liability. Drivers who consume alcohol or take drugs, even prescription, prior to getting behind the wheel pose a serious risk to other drivers.
- A truck driver’s failure to obey traffic laws can be the cause of an accident. Running red lights, stop signs, failing to yield and making improper lane changes are just some examples.
- A truck driver may also be found liable if they are driving with an unsafe load. When the maximum load is exceeded or it is not properly secured, the driver or trucking company could be found at fault.
If a truck driver acted in a careless or reckless manner and it caused you to sustain serious injuries, you may have the right to compensation. A claim can address your financial losses, such as your medical bills and lost wages. It can also take into consideration other losses suffered such as permanent disability, pain and suffering, mental anguish and more.
