What type of parties may be held liable if I was involved in a Georgia truck accident?

Commercial truck drivers and companies are responsible for making sure their trucks, cargo and drivers are safe and suitable for travelling on public roads, highways and streets. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and as a result, a truck accident in Georgia can occur, leaving innocent victims seriously injured.

While there are many different types of truck accidents that can occur, there are just as many people who can be held responsible. Many common liable entities in a truck accident include: 
  • the driver;
  • the trucking company;
  • the truck manufacturer;
  • the truck maintenance person;
  • the cargo manufacturer and
  • the person who loaded the cargo. 

It takes a skilled and experienced truck accident lawyer to lead a comprehensive investigation that can determine who is liable in a truck accident. In fact, there may be more that one factor that contributes to a truck accident.  It is important to get evidence to support your claim and to help determine whose fault it was. No matter how the accident occurred, it is vital to get the legal help you need to assist you in paying for medical bills and other expenses after a truck accident.
