Why should I hire a truck accident attorney?
Truck accidents are unlike traffic accidents for a number of reasons. When you are seeking compensation for a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, the strength of your claim relies heavily on the evidence your attorney can present. This requires an attorney who knows how to conduct a thorough investigation.
The truck accident attorneys at Ashenden & Associates have over thirty years of experience in handling truck accident cases. They are familiar with Georgia trucking regulations and are capable of understanding driver and trucking company logs. They will also look into the truck operator’s driving history and the trucking company’s safety record to see if they have previous violations which may prove to be pertinent to your case. The information they can glean from these logs, along with witness accounts and police reports, can help them build a solid injury claim.
Truck accidents typically involve more than one party, especially when fatigue, faulty equipment, and mechanical failure have contributed to the cause of the accident. Both drivers and trucking companies can be held accountable for injuries or the death of your loved one. For instance, if your accident was caused by faulty brakes, the driver may be responsible for hitting you, but if the trucking company failed to repair their vehicle as needed, then they must take on some of the responsibility for your injuries.
