Tractor-Trailer Accidents in Atlanta
There is more than just the size and weight of the vehicles involved that
separates a tractor-trailer crash from a passenger-vehicle crash. When
big rigs, or similarly sized commercial vehicles, are involved in an accident,
the level of liability is significantly higher. This is because these
vehicles are operated by professional drivers, who must obtain a special
license, and are representing a commercial entity. Unfortunately, this
does not necessarily make compensation any easier to obtain. In some instances,
recovering damages after a commercial truck accident is even harder -
which is why you need an experienced Atlanta personal injury lawyer by

We Help Protect You Against Big-Time Insurance Companies
Establishing liability in the aftermath of a tractor-trailer accident is
a difficult process. With so many potential defendants all trying to cover
their backs, having an experienced advocate by your side makes a huge
difference. In some instances, one entity owns the truck, another owns
the trailer, a third employs the driver, and a fourth was in charge of
loading. Depending on how the accident unfolded, some or all of them could
be legally responsible.
Commercial, tractor-trailer accidents can be caused by:
- Brake failure
- Sudden load shifting
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Tire blow-outs
- Unsafe operating speeds
Even when an insurance company accepts liability, their primary goal is
to settle as quickly and cheaply as possible. At
Goldstein & Hayes, P.C., we carefully evaluate the nature and extent of your injuries - taking
into account pain and suffering - along with the lost services and income
that resulted from the accident. Only then do we consider settlement offers.
Our unyielding commitment to comprehensive client care has helped us
recover more than $100 million in damages.
