Tractor Trailor (Truck) Accidents
Trucking accidents frequently result in catastrophic injury, permanent disability, even death. Victims and their families often face tremendous physical, emotional, and financial hardships. Drivers of smaller vehicles should be aware that trucks have certain speed, turning, visibility and braking limitations.
Georgia law requires trucking companies to carry a significant amount of insurance coverage. However, they are only required to carry liability insurance coverage of $100,000.00 per person and $300,000.00 or $500,000.00 per accident. Sometimes insurance policies may not be adequate to cover the claim. This requires exploration into what other insurance is available and the extent of the company’s assets.
