When you have been seriously injured in a truck accident, you will need the help of a Georgia injury law firm. This type of accident can become much more complicated than your average car accident. This is because not only could the driver be held liable but evidence may prove that the trucking company was also responsible.
Compensation through a GA personal injury claim could be drastically increased if it is found that there was a violation of truck industry laws, as established by federal regulations. This is why you will need adequate evidence for fighting your case.

The more evidence you are able to collect after your truck accident, the better chance you will have a fair and full settlement. Evidence that could help demonstrate the cause of your accident such as speeding, driving under the influence, or truck driver fatigue, includes:
- police/accident report;
- driver's logbook (record of duty status);
- photographs of the accident scene and damaged vehicles;
- automatic on-board recording devices; and
- alcohol/drug testing.
