Located at the intersection of I-75 and U.S. 221, Valdosta is a hub for commercial trucking activity in South Georgia. Countless large trucks pass through Valdosta every day, and most do so without incident. However, collisions between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles are still common; and, for those who are injured and who lose family members in these accidents, hiring a trusted Valdosta truck accident law firm is a critical step on the road to recovery.

Valdosta Truck Accident Law Firm Handling All Serious and Fatal Collisions

At Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley PA, we represent individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries and families who have lost loved ones in commercial vehicle accidents in South Georgia. We help our clients through the recovery process step-by-step, and we fight to win maximum compensation for our clients’ financial and non-financial losses. Our attorneys bring decades of experience to protecting our clients’ legal rights. We handle personal injury and wrongful death cases involving all types of commercial vehicles, including:

  • 18-wheelers, tractor trailers and semi-trucks
  • Flatbed trucks and vehicle transport trailers
  • Tanker trucks
  • Delivery trucks and vans
  • Utility trucks and vans
  • Garbage trucks
  • Dump trucks
  • Cement mixers
  • All other commercial vehicles

All of the same factors that can lead to “ordinary” vehicle collisions can potentially be factors in commercial vehicle accidents. However, there are several additional factors that can cause and contribute to these accidents as well. For example, when the attorneys at our Valdosta truck accident law firm investigate commercial vehicle accident claims on behalf of our clients, we look for evidence of causal factors such as:

  • Communicating with dispatch or reading delivery route directions at the time of the accident
  • Cargo loading errors, including failure to secure cargo, overloading one side of the truck, and exceeding the truck’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)
  • Inadequate truck driver training or experience
  • Exceeding federal limitations on the number of consecutive and cumulative hours truck drivers spend behind the wheel
  • Failure to maintain control in the event of a sudden stop or emergency resulting in a rollover or jackknife accident

Proving Liability After a Commercial Vehicle Accident in Georgia

There are several steps involved in proving liability after a commercial truck accident. Most importantly, our attorneys and will need to launch an investigation as soon as possible. We will also need to meet with you to go over the details of the accident and begin assessing the immediate and long-term consequences of your injuries or your loved one’s death. Not only do we need to determine the cause of the accident, but we need to understand its effects as well. Once we have this information, then we can begin fighting to secure just compensation on your behalf.
