Most of us have driven past a harrowing accident at some point. Some of the most frightening ones involve large trucks. The sheer size of semis, as well as the speed these trucks attain on the freeways, can result in devastating accidents. You and other Georgia residents may want to know the details on rollover accidents, which can be especially dangerous in multi-vehicle situations.
We read recently of a woman and two children involved in a violent crash south of Georgia. The 36-year-old Florida woman and two 8-year-old children had to be extricated from their Nissan Altima after it was in a crash with an 18-wheeler and became wedged under the big rig's trailer.
Sometimes, it can be frustrating to get caught behind a big truck when you are on your way somewhere and know that traveling behind the truck is going to slow you down a bit. However, driving responsibly and respectfully around semi-trucks is important as they are much larger than your passenger vehicle and can put you at extreme risk if you end up crashing into one in Georgia.
If you recently experienced an accident involving a commercial truck, you may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of building your claim and pursuing it. Unlike accidents between consumer drivers, commercial truck accidents typically involve the driver's employer, the owner of the truck itself or some other party who may be responsible for the damages.
Safely operating a passenger vehicle is easier said than done. There is trouble lurking around every corner, and it's your job to avoid it at all costs.
