Truck Accident Lawyers in Athens, GA
There's a world of difference between a car accident and a truck accident when it comes time to sue the driver at fault. The severity of the injuries that typically result from a trucking wreck usually means that you won't be looking at a $30,000 or $75,000 claim – you might need hundreds of thousands to support your family through a long recovery, or millions to help you adapt to a permanent disability.
For experienced representation in a Georgia truck accident case, call a lawyer who knows how to handle the special demands of personal injury litigation against a corporate defendant. Contact Wells and McElwee, P.C., in Athens for a free consultation.
Our Attention to Detail in Your Damages Claim Can Make All the Difference
In truck accident cases, the challenge is not so much finding the insurance coverage you need to cover a major claim for damages. Instead, it's to demonstrate your future losses of income, medical expenses, and quality of life in sufficient detail. A carefully developed and documented damages claim can help you both in settlement negotiations and in front of a jury. Our experience with high-stakes personal injury litigation can make the critical difference in the outcome of your truck accident case.
We represent truck accident survivors and the families of people killed in accidents ranging from a commercial pickup truck crash to a collision with an 18-wheeler. We can help maximize your recovery in such cases as the following:
- Logging truck accidents
- Farm vehicle accidents
- Accidents involving delivery or supply vans
- Poultry truck accidents
- Accidents caused by poor cargo loading or defective trailer equipment
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Rollover accidents
- Accidents involving violations of federal safety regulations
Our attorneys know how to spot the signs of unsafe trucking practices, and our ability to prove negligent driving, training, hiring, freight handling, or vehicle maintenance can help establish the liability of one or more defendants.
