Cumming, Georgia Truck Accident Attorney
North Georgia Truck Accident Attorney
A truck accident can easily result in a number of catastrophic injuries. It’s not unusual for someone involved in an accident with a semi or tractor-trailer truck to suffer a crippling, debilitating injury, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, neck injuries, paralysis, broken bones, crushed organs or limbs, internal bleeding, disfigurement, permanent disability, and even death.
Not only are these types of injuries incredibly painful, but they can also significantly impair an individual’s physical abilities to the point where he or she may no longer be able to work, go to school, drive a car, or even walk down the street.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are caused by a number of factors. The majority of truck accidents occur as result of driver negligence. Common types of truck driver negligence that often result in an accident include:
- Driving under the influence
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Reckless driving
- Driving while distracted
- Texting or talking on the phone while driving
- Illegal turns
In some cases, the accident is not the fault of the driver. At Leibel Law, we have experience handling truck accident cases in which a mechanical malfunction lead to an accident. We also have litigated truck accident cases in which the trucking company was found negligent for failing to repair or maintain defective or broken equipment on the truck.
