Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorneys in Savannah
Trial-Tested Georgia Attorneys With 25+ Years of Experience
Any car accident can be damaging or deadly, but commercial vehicle accidents tend to be more harmful and complex. By nature, commercial vehicles are often larger and heavier because they carry products, supplies, machines, or other cargo to and fro.
Whether that commercial vehicle is a delivery van, a construction vehicle, or a semi-truck, chances are it could cause more damage in a collision than your standard passenger vehicle. Unfortunately, this often means that other drivers, bikers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians involved in commercial vehicle accidents suffer the consequences.

What Causes Commercial Vehicle Accidents?
When it comes to commercial vehicle accidents, several factors could ultimately cause a deadly crash. The driver might be drowsy, intoxicated, or otherwise impaired, which would dull his or her senses and reduce reaction times, endangering everyone on the road. Or, if the vehicle is poorly maintained or incorrectly loaded, the vehicle could be thrown off-balance, resulting in a roll-over or jackknife accident. Depending on the type of vehicle involved, many different issues could contribute to the crash. Thankfully, our experienced attorneys at Tate Law Group, LLC have ample resources at our disposal.
Our team can gather evidence from your accident, assess the potential causes, and determine liability. We understand how trying these types of accidents can be, which is why we’re prepared to do the legwork while you focus on healing and recovering after your crash.
Determining Liability In a Commercial Vehicle Accident
After an accident with a commercial vehicle, it’s important to gather sufficient evidence to identify the liable party. Accidents can result in devastating injuries and substantial property damage, which can result in costly medical bills, future medical expenses, loss of wages, and more. Depending on the type of vehicle involved in your accident and the cause, several parties could be found liable for the resulting damages.
If the driver was negligent or careless, he or she may be liable for the crash. Or, if the driver was ill-qualified, poorly trained, or overworked, the employer would most likely be liable. When dealing with commercial accidents, the owner of the commercial vehicle is most often liable—especially if their employee, the driver, was at fault. The company might also be responsible for poor vehicle maintenance, failed vehicle repairs, unsafe loading practices, and so on. Other liable parties may include vehicle manufacturers, vehicle mechanics, and other drivers.
Do You Have a Case? We Can Help!
Commercial vehicle accidents can be devastating, especially if they injure other drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, or other bystanders. Although these types of accidents aren’t as common as passenger vehicle crashes, they are often more devastating when they do. Truck accidents, for example, have a substantially higher fatality rate than standard vehicle accidents, making them more deadly.
