FINDING THE BEST TRACTOR TRAILER ATTORNEY IN MARIETTA
Georgia citizens have many fine options for lawyers, but it is always important to find the best lawyer for your specific case, especially after a tractor trailer crash. Trucking companies and their drivers are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration so cases involving semi-truck wrecks are more complicated than most car accident claims.
When selecting a Marietta tractor trailer accident attorney, it’s important to find one that you trust and who is familiar with the laws that govern trucking companies and their drivers. These federal regulations apply to all commercial vehicles and cover safety issues like:
- Pre-Trip Inspections (49 CFR § 396.9)
- Loading Procedures (49 CFR § 393.100)
- Distracted Driving
- Lights and Reflectors (49 CFR § 393.11)
- Hours of Service
Make sure that any tractor trailer attorney you interview in Marietta has a working knowledge of the laws and regulations governing tractor trailer drivers.
THEORIES OF LIABILITY IN TRACTOR TRAILER CRASH CASES
Common causes of tractor trailer crashes include distracted driving, improper loading, driver fatigue, mechanical defects and speeding. Crashes involving tractor trailers are especially complicated and the potential damage to the tractor trailer, and others on the road, is extensive due to the sheer size and weight of these vehicles.
When evaluating liability in any tractor trailer case in Marietta, we start with an extensive investigation. This involves working with experts in accident reconstruction and trucking industry representatives to look into the cause of the crash. We then examine how the case fits within federal motor carrier safety regulations and Georgia law in order to maximize the recovery for our clients who have suffered personal injury.
Sometimes obtaining a favorable recovery for our clients is achieved through pre-suit settlements or mediation. When those routes do not produce a fair settlement, the case heads to trial in either the State Court of Cobb County or the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
