Truck Accidents

truck accident attorneys Kennesaw, GA

Every year 500,000 accidents involving large trucks occur in the United States. In fact, 1 in every 8 traffic collisions involves a truck of this size. Tractor-trailers are too often driven by tired, distracted, or careless truckers who wind up being responsible for some of the most horrific accidents imaginable.

The Dangers

Just the massive size of these semi-trucks make them difficult to drive and also extremely deadly upon collision.  Compared to the average car, fully loaded semi-trucks

  • need 40% more stopping distance (at 40 mph, average compact car 124 ft., semi 169 ft.)
  • are 20x heavier (average compact car: 4,000 lbs., semi: 80,000 lbs.)
  • need 20 more feet to complete a turn (average compact car: 35 ft., semi: 55 ft.)

Because of this, semi-truck accidents are more likely to result in life-altering injuries and fatalities than accidents involving cars.

Specialized Legal Action

Tractor-trailer cases are different from auto accident cases. Your trucking accident lawyer must be familiar with endless technical regulations, government rules, company safety and security policies, and much more – or else the full value of your case could be irreparably harmed in short order.

If you or a family member has been involved in a tractor-trailer accident, you must hire a lawyer who can act immediately to preserve all of the critical evidence that is often “lost,” destroyed, or easily altered by large motor carriers.

Don’t be fooled by lawyers who lack the strength and wisdom to properly approach these complex cases. If you or a family member are incapacitated by the recklessness or negligence of a truck driver, you may have to deal with loss of mobility, medical bills, and an inability to work. But you don’t have to deal with these hardships on your own. The Gumprecht Law Firm is prepared to assemble a large team of attorneys who can act promptly so that the responsible motor carrier is held accountable and the full value of your case is preserved.
