Cobb County, Georgia Truck Accident Attorneys

Gentry, Smith, Dettmering, Morgan, Schnatmeier & Collins, LLP – Marietta, Georgia, Attorneys

Tractor trailer and 18-wheelers don’t necessarily have to pose a threat. When driven responsibly, they are no more dangerous than any other vehicle on the road. But when the driver is being inattentive or the truck has been insufficiently maintained, trucking accidents result that can cause terrible tragedies upon innocent passersby and their families.

If a trucking accident has harmed you or a family member, you will need an experienced truck accident attorney to recover fair, adequate compensation. For a free consultation at Gentry, Smith, Dettmering, Morgan, Schnatmeier & Collins, LLP, click here or call 770.771.5097.

A Brief Overview of Trucking Accidents

Truck drivers are expected not only to make sure they themselves are driving carefully, but also to look out for what other drivers may be doing on the road. Because a truck is capable of causing so much damage, they are expected to uphold a higher “standard of care” on the road. When a trucking accident occurs, it usually indicates – at the very least – that the truck driver failed to adhere to this standard.

Even worse, in many cases, accidents are caused by a direct violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations. This can mean improper maintenance or the driver was on the road for too many hours in a row, resulting in fatigue and inattentiveness on the road.

Marietta personal injury lawyers at Gentry, Smith, Dettmering, Morgan, Schnatmeier & Collins, LLP have handled many tractor trailer accident cases that occurred within the area and throughout Northwest Georgia, including I-75, I-285, the Perimeter, Cobb Parkway and U.S. Highway 41. Our firm has handled cases resulting in serious injury and wrongful death.
