Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Atlanta, Georgia Commercial Vehicle Accident Litigation and Trial Lawyers
If you have been injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle, it is important that you contact an attorney who has successfully handled cases involving commercial vehicles in the past. Commercial vehicles can include buses, construction vehicles, delivery trucks, and small moving trucks. They can also include regular automobiles that are being used for a business purpose or on behalf of an employer. As is the case with accidents involving trucks, accidents involving commercial vehicles can cause serious injuries. In many instances, drivers of commercial vehicles have to carry special licenses, and they take their job seriously, as they are professionals, and their job is their livelihood. However, as is the case with almost any profession, there are commercial drivers that are unsafe. Furthermore, there are companies that implement risky policies in order to increase profit. Sometimes these same companies cut corners in order to save money and hire drivers who should never be behind the wheel of a commercial vehicle. Under these circumstances, it is more likely that an accident will be the end result.
At Austin & Sparks, we will use our decades of experience to fully review any injuries you sustained in an accident with a commercial vehicle, and then maximize the value of your recovery – whether it be through settlement or trial. Not only do we look at the accident itself, but also, we thoroughly examine a driver’s history, the safety practices of the company, whether there were incentives for faster deliveries, and whether the company did what it needed to before hiring a driver. In many instances, both the company and its driver can be held accountable for an accident caused by its driver. That is why it is critical that you hire a lawyer who has dealt with commercial vehicle accidents.
