Personal injury claims brought as a result of accidents involving semi trucks, tractor-trailer rigs and 18-wheelers are different from claims resulting from regular car accidents. Large trucks are subject to federal motor carrier regulations and other specific rules, which can play a significant role in proving fault on the part of the trucking company.

At Daughtery, Crawford & Brown, LLP, we have significant experience in trucking accidents in Columbus and Atlanta and throughout Georgia as well as Alabama. Our lawyers use detailed knowledge of the applicable truck safety regulations to help maximize compensation for our clients.

You can also count on receiving personal attention throughout every step of your case. Because we are a small firm, our attorneys will oversee the details and truly get to know you. Call us at 706-405-3616 for your free consultation.

We Know The Rules And Regulations That May Apply In Your Case

Aside from general personal injury claims, other claims may be important in your case. For instance, you may have a:

  • Claim against the trucking company for negligent hiring or retention of the driver
  • Claim for negligent inspection, maintenance or repair of the truck
  • Claim for wrongful death, if a loved one was killed in a fatal accident

Our lawyers are also knowledgeable about other unique aspects of Georgia trucking law, such as the ability to sue the insurance company directly in cases involving tractor-trailers and other motor contract carriers. We will use that knowledge on your behalf.

We Work With Renowned Experts To Help Maximize Compensation

When investigating these challenging cases, our lawyers work closely with some of the premier professionals in the industry, including accident reconstruction experts. There are many important records that our lawyers work to preserve and use in proving the case, such as the driver logbook, black box data and other documentation relevant to proving the truck driver was at fault.

In one case, we obtained an $450,000 settlement for a motorcycle rider who was run off the road by a tractor-trailer. Even though the tractor-trailer did not collide with the motorcycle, we were able to establish liability and obtain a significant amount for a deserving client.
