Attorney George S. Johnson Holds Trucking Companies Accountable
Thousands of large commercial trucks pass through the Atlanta area every day. Most go unnoticed by drivers, until an accident occurs. Because the average 18-wheeler outweighs a typical passenger car by up to 75,000lbs, truck-car collisions can be especially devastating to motorists, often leading to catastrophic or fatal injuries. It's not uncommon for accident victims to suffer from paralysis, spinal injuries, or even traumatic brain damage.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you may be feeling scared or overwhelmed. You may simply be thankful to be alive. But you also may be entitled to financial damages, including compensation for medical bills, lost wages and benefits, or even funeral expenses, if a loved one was killed.
Don't wait to take legal action. Truck accident cases are complex and evidence needs to be gathered quickly. Trucking companies and their attorneys can be difficult to take on - they will vigorously fight personal injury claims by victims and surviving family members. You need an experienced lawyer with a proven track record of success. You need attorney George S. Johnson to level the playing field.
How can Attorney Johnson help me with my case?
The majority of truck accidents are caused by truckers who were:
- Asleep at the wheel
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or stimulants
- Texting and driving
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Driving trucks that were overloaded or improperly loaded
As your attorney, George S. Johnson will work tirelessly to prove the truck driver's negligence and hold the trucking company accountable. He will immediately begin an in-depth investigation into your accident and secure vital evidence before it disappears.
In addition to obtaining police reports, medical records and witness statements, we'll hire experts to reconstruct the accident, obtain critical black box data from the tractor-trailer, track down cell phone records, and even consult economists to accurately calculate your lost wages or benefits.
