Georgia highways are busy thoroughfares traveled by many motorists each day. Even while considering that most drivers typically do their best to maintain control of their vehicles and protect the safety of all those who share the road with them, there are still roadway tragedies. Some of those incidents involve truck accidents where people have been seriously injured or killed.
Most would agree that negligent truck drivers should be held accountable for their actions. When a truck operator is under the employment of a company, the employer can potentially be held liable as well if proper training did not take place or if a person with a poor driving record or history has been hired to do the job. Because a truck company will usually act aggressively to defend itself against formal allegations, it is typically advisable for an injured person, or the immediate family members of a victim who succumbed to his or her injuries, to seek legal counsel with a professional who has experience in cases that involve truck accidents.
