Being involved in a serious crash can be a very frightening ordeal, and the aftermath is often incredibly stressful to those involved or injured. Accident victims may have to deal with hospitalization, medical treatments, missed work and lost income. On top of this, police reports and insurance claims must be filed, all while victims are dealing with the pain of recovery.
The action you take in the minutes, hours and days after any vehicle accident can play a vital role in the successful resolution of your claim. In addition to seeking prompt medical treatment, it is very important to also seek knowledgeable legal counsel. With our experienced Savannah accident attorneys on your side, you can feel confident that your truck accident claim will be given swift attention and that crucial evidence is preserved. The longer you postpone contacting professional assistance, the more crucial evidence from your crash could be compromised – thereby compromising your case.

As experienced personal injury attorneys, we understand how important it is to have access to the truck accident scene as soon as possible after the accident. It is not uncommon for truckers, trucking companies or even their own insurance adjusters to “misplace” evidence. When we are able to act as quickly as possible, we level the playing field by having access to the evidence.
Truck crashes — whether they are jackknife truck accidents, rollover truck accidents, rear-end collision accidents or another type of crash — are usually caused by noncompliance with federal and state trucking regulations. Our attorneys have full command of trucking regulations as enforced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). In our protecting the rights of those injured in truck accidents, we have found the following pieces of evidence to be crucial to winning cases:
By analyzing the above evidence and working with trucking and accident reconstruction experts, we can determine how the crash occurred and who is responsible. For example, hotel receipts may show that the driver did not stop to take a break, and was overtired at the wheel. Inspection reports may show that the truck was not inspected regularly, resulting in faulty equipment. We get to the cause of the accident to hold negligent truckers and trucking companies accountable for the devastation that they can cause.
Truck accidents usually result in catastrophic injuries and death. We provide compassionate, effective legal help to individuals and their affected family members as we seek maximum compensation for their losses.
