Truck Accident Lawyers in Savannah

Assisting Victims of Tractor-Trailer Collisions in Georgia

Tate Law Group, LLC has successfully represented numerous victims of tractor-trailer collisions throughout Georgia. We gather evidence to determine the cause of the accident and pursue valid claims against negligent trucking companies and drivers who cause injury to innocent victims.

The sheer size of a tractor-trailer makes the outcome of a collision with a smaller vehicle incredibly devastating. Nationally, a collision between a truck and a car is ten times more likely to result in a fatality than a crash between two automobiles. If you have been injured in tractor-trailer collisions in Savannah or elsewhere in Georgia, it is critical to get proper legal representation if you are seeking a settlement.

Common Causes of Tractor-Trailer Collisions

Truck drivers work incredibly long hours driving cargo across the country. They are on strict deadlines to get their freight to where it is going, and as a result, they drive for several hours at a time without stopping for rest and recovery. This physical and mental strain can severely impact these drivers, resulting in slower reaction times or even falling asleep at the wheel. When this happens, it is often disastrous.

There are several state and federal laws that force truck drivers to take breaks to avoid exhaustion. These policies include:

  • Resting for 34 consecutive hours during a 70-hour work week
  • Driving for no more than 70 hours in 8 consecutive days
  • Driving a maximum of 11 hours during a 14-hour workday, followed by a 10 hour resting period
  • Refraining from alcohol and mind-altering substances for a minimum of 8 hours prior to driving
  • Maintaining a log book of all time spent working and time behind the wheel

Unfortunately, due to pressure from employers to meet tight deadlines, truck drivers often break these rules. Multiple fatalities have occurred in and around Savannah over the past several years that were caused by tractor-trailer driver error. While no sum of money can bring back a loved one, a monetary award is the only way civil law can recognize the value of the victim’s life, compensate for the death and subsequent losses, and penalize the party or parties at fault. When tragedy strikes, we will always do our best to get justice for your loss in the eyes of the law.

The Trucking Company & You

If you or a loved one has been involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer, you need the help of an experienced attorney. The trucking companies have their own litigation teams and agents who go to the accident site, interview the injured, gather evidence, and begin building a defense. Do not go it alone.

Your future is in the balance. At Tate Law Group, LLC, we work with teams of researchers to do our own evidence collection and witness interviews. We want to make sure all of the facts are presented in every case and are not afraid to go up against big trucking companies when they are at fault.

If you have been involved in a tractor-trailer collision, contact the experienced truck accident lawyers at Tate Law Group, LLC in Savannah today. You can reach us at (912) 333-3915.
