Trucking accident likely to cause serious injuries or death

Motor vehicle accidents involving trucks may unfortunately lead to severe injuries or even death in a split second. After all, commercial trucks are much heavier than other automobiles on the road, and sometimes they carry flammable or hazardous materials. Motorists who have been hurt or who have lost ones in a trucking accident have the right to take legal action in Georgia civil court.

Commercial trucks include any large freight trucks used to transport goods or complete other business activities, such as delivery trucks, tanker trucks or 18-wheeler tractor trailers. These types of trucks are especially dangerous because when they are completely loaded, they have the potential to weigh at least 80,000 pounds. Meanwhile, an average passenger car weighs just 3,000 pounds.
