Truck Accident in Georgia
Though trucks are heavily regulated under federal and state laws in Georgia, there is always a chance that a truck will become involved in a life-changing and serious accident. In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that, in Georgia, 155 fatalities stemmed from truck accidents. These accidents happen for many reasons from drowsy driving when truck drivers spend too much time on the roads to driving while intoxicated. No matter the reason, many families might wonder how they can move forward at this time.
