Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyers
Pursue Just Compensation with Ross & Pines, LLC
The sheer size of trucks makes them imposing vehicles. It also makes drivers of smaller cars vulnerable to serious personal injury or wrongful death in the event of an accident.

We are also committed to holding trucking companies responsible when they hire truck drivers who have bad driving records, prior convictions for DUI or other criminal convictions.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
When a tractor-trailer or truck causes an accident, you can be certain that the trucking company will go to work immediately to build a case in its defense. It will put all its resources to use protecting its interests and assets. In fact, trucking companies often send insurance adjusters out to the scene of the accident to talk to you before you have the opportunity to seek medical treatment and consult a lawyer.
Tight deadlines and quotas often lead to the following safety failures:
- Improper loading
- Failure to secure loads
- Poor truck maintenance
- Driving too many hours
- Driving too fast
Adjusters will often try to minimize their driver's responsibility for causing your injuries and the seriousness of your injuries. You have the right to protect your interests and well-being. If you or a loved one has been in a tractor-trailer crash, Ross & Pines, LLC can help.
Who is Liable After a Truck Accident?
The party most often held liable for a truck accident is the trucking company since these companies are often caught expecting their drivers to break trucking regulations in an effort to save time or money. There are times when the truck driver is held liable, especially if the accident was directly caused by their negligence, such as driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Although more usual, there are other parties that can be found liable such as a truck manufacturer or cargo loading team. Ross & Pines, LLC is experienced in investigating truck accident claims and is ready to help you today.
