Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyer Recovers Multimillion-Dollar Outcomes for Victims of Truck Crashes

Helping victims of 18-wheeler accidents recover for serious loss, injury and suffering

Accidents involving commercial trucks, semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, box trucks or tractor-trailers can have devastating and, oftentimes, deadly results. Commuters traveling I-285, I-85, I-75 and I-20 in Atlanta witness accidents involving big rigs almost daily. While all traffic accidents can have tragic consequences, the sheer size and weight of 18-wheelers make trucking accidents more dangerous than car accidents. Trucking accidents are believed to cause a significantly higher number of wrongful deaths and serious injuries than automobile collisions. When trucking accidents involve carriers of hazardous materials, such as gases or radioactive materials, the potential for serious personal injury is even greater. At McMenamy Law, our Atlanta truck crash attorney has the experience and know-how to fight for victims experiencing catastrophic loss due to the negligence of commercial truck owners and operators.

Common causes of truck accidents in Atlanta

Truck crashes are usually caused by:

  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks and falling debris
  • Distracted truck drivers, including drivers operating cell phones
  • Tire blowouts
  • Driver fatigue
  • Truck driver negligence
  • Trucking company negligence

What types of damages can truck crash victims and their families expect?

Victims of truck crashes and their families are entitled to damages to compensate for severe and permanent injuries sustained as a result of the trucking accident and to cover financial losses, including medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages. Financial recovery can never fully compensate for the pain and suffering experienced as a result of the trucking accident, but it can help ease the financial burdens for truck crash victims and their families. Our attorney immediately investigates the circumstances surrounding your truck collision and builds a strong argument for maximum damages.

Access to critical documents and records necessary to pursue successful outcomes

Uncovering and preserving evidence is key to prevailing in truck accident cases. We interview witnesses, reference photographs taken at the scene and request data from computers on board the vehicle in question. Police and medical records also hold valuable information needed to build a solid case. McMenamy Law is one of only a small percentage of Atlanta firms with the resources necessary to devote to detailed evidence analysis. When it comes to your case, we leave no stone unturned. Accident investigators and accident reconstruction specialists are brought in to further solidify our position. If you have been involved in a truck accident, we will need the following information to help prove trucking company or truck driver negligence:

  • Witness names and contact information
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • Medical records
  • Police records
