Get Experienced Legal Representation

There are a lot of lawyers in Georgia that claim to handle tractor-trailer crashes, but it takes real-world experience for your lawyer to know where to look in the records to prove your case. As a former lawyer for the trucking companies and their insurance carriers, Mr. Simon spent six years defending semi-truck drivers after crashes. In the years since that time, he has concentrated 40% of his law practice on representing victims against those companies.

An experienced Atlanta tractor-trailer accident lawyer knows that for serious cases, the lawsuit should be filed every time because it is only with discovery and subpoena power that the operational records of the trucking company will come to light. When litigating cases worth hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, it pays to hire a former industry insider who can expose the lies being used to prevent juries from seeing what some of these trucking companies really do.

Tractor-Trailer Accident Cases Are Different From Auto Accident Cases

There are a number of aspects to trucking crashes in Georgia that make the practice unique and without a lawyer that is experienced in the field, the client can quickly lose value on a case.

Atlanta trucking cases are more complex for a number of reasons. First, all interstate trucking companies are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. They put out a massive book called the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations that takes years of study to master. When a tractor-trailer driver violates these safety regulations, the Court can charge the jury on negligence per se, which can make a world of difference in a disputed liability case. That means that if the rule is broken, the judge tells the jury that the breaking of the rule means the trucking company is somewhat responsible.

Second, tractor-trailers incorporate advanced computer systems similar to an aircraft “black box” and some have onboard radar and satellite tracking data that can tell the truth about why the crash happened, even when the driver is lying. Third, trucking crash collision reconstruction requires an engineer with specialized skills and only an experienced trucking lawyer has these engineers on their Rolodex. Fourth, trucking cases should never be settled without the lawyer at least deposing under oath the driver and risk manager as well as an exhaustive review of all operational documents. An average car accident lawyer is simply not trained to handle a trucking case in Georgia.

Common Types of Truck Accidents in Atlanta, GA

The cause of a trucking accident can determine how the vehicle crashes. For example, a driver locking up the brakes could cause the truck to jackknife.

Examining the type of accident can help a victim understand what caused the collision, and who to blame for damages. One of the first steps we can take as your attorneys is to launch an investigation into the type of accident.

  • Jackknife. The trailer of an 18-wheeler swings out at an angle from the bed, like a jackknife. This makes it impossible for the driver to stop or steer the vehicle.
  • Wide turn accident. The driver does not give him or herself enough room to swing the truck out before making a turn, colliding with or trapping other vehicles.
  • Rear-end collision. A drowsy, drunk, distracted, or drugged truck driver may smash into the vehicle(s) in front of the truck, causing severe personal injuries.
  • No Zone accident. A truck has significant No Zones, or blind spots, that truck drivers must check before turning or merging. Failure to check the No Zone could cause a sideswipe or merge accident. A number of small vehicles and motorcycle accidents in Atlanta are caused by semi-truck blind zones.
  • Rollover. A commercial truck could roll over and cause a crash if one of its tires blows out or if the driver engages in unsafe practices, such as speeding or jerking the wheel.

Other common Atlanta tractor-trailer accidents include lost cargo loads and underride accidents. If you do not know your accident type, one of our Atlanta truck accident lawyers can review police reports, revisit the scene, and re-create the accident, if necessary. Our attorneys have the power to understand who or what caused your crash and to help you file a claim against that party.

Chris Simon and his team handled my accident case, and were fantastic to work with. Chris and his assistants, Alicia and Laynie, were professional, courteous and efficient, and responded quickly (and patiently) to my every question and concern. My case was resolved fairly and with minimal stress on my end, the importance of which cannot be overstated, especially when dealing with the pain and frustration of a car accident. I highly recommend the Simon law firm.

I originally contacted the Simon Law firm based on the great reviews I read when searching for a lawyer to handle my case after a car accident. Let me just say that I am happy I found this firm and can attest to the fact that my experience with both Tyler and Laynie have been nothing short than amazing.
