The Law Firm of Merritt & Merritt

Tractor Trailer Wreck (MAC truck)

It is 6:00 in the evening and you turn on the news to hear for the second time this week that someone was injured or killed in an accident involving a semi-truck. As unfortunate as this is, the most important factor is always the victim.   Hopefully, the victim is not you but in life things often happen unexpectedly.

Involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle such as tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, big rig, or semi truck? Call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm today at 912-764-3434.

Regardless of the extent of the injury, the victim will be fighting an uphill battle to receive the compensation they deserve. Truck companies have deep pockets and will not hesitate to use their resources to place you as the cause of the accident or to grossly under compensate you for your injuries. It is important to know that as a victim you have rights and one of our attorneys is ready to assist you with those rights.

We have served truck accident victims in Savannah, Atlanta, Statesboro, and all of Georgia.

Causes of Big Truck Accidents:

  • Driver Fatigue:   The driver has driven over the legal limit of 14 consecutive hours.
  • Improperly Loaded Cargo:   Cargo is overweight, unbalanced or shifts during transit.
  • Excessive Speed:   Going over the speed limits set for semi-trucks and using excessive speed in unsafe conditions and sharp turns.
  • Under Riding:   When trucks lack adequate safeguards on the rear of the truck to prevent vehicles from plowing into them. In most cases, the top of the car is torn off and many of the passengers are seriously injured or killed

As with any vehicle accidents, there will be physical and mental repercussions. However, being involved in an accident with a semi-truck can be devastating and may leave the victim permanently injured or cause death.

You can be sure that the trucking company will have a team of attorneys waiting to fight their legal battles. That is why it is imperative for you to contact an attorney who has experience dealing with semi-truck accidents and one who will work hard for you.

At Merritt & Merritt we strive to ensure that our clients first receive needed medical care and second the help they need to win their case. We understand the stress caused by major accidents and that's why we guide you along the way.
