As the economy thrives, you may see commercial trucks lining Georgia roads at all hours of the day and night. The trucking industry is responsible for millions of tons of goods crisscrossing the country each year. They transport everything from sneakers and lumber to salsa and home goods. At Sams, Larkin, Huff and Balli, LLP, our team often represents clients catastrophically injured in a crash with a big rig due to distracted driving.
Most in Marietta likely believe that their own well-developed driving skills will help them to avoid accidents. While that may be true in many cases, one can never fully eliminate the potential of encountering a reckless driver on the road (at which point control over avoiding an accident may be taken completely out of their hands). Reckless drivers may often leave a great deal of devastation in their wake, including serious injuries and even fatalities on top of the damage they cause to others vehicles. Some such cases may require that accident victims seek legal action, either to secure adequate insurance coverage or collect damages from the responsible party.
