Georgia Trucking Accident Attorneys
DATE_FORMAT_LC2If your family has been impacted by an 18-wheeler accident, it is important to contact an Atlanta truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. Trucking companies, their insurers, and their attorneys are often at the scene of an accident, working to limit their financial exposure, within hours or even minutes of the accident. The victims of trucking accidents are at an immediate disadvantage unless they immediately retain an experienced personal injury attorney working at the scene of the accident to find and preserve evidence supporting their side of the case.
Evans & Strickland is one of Georgia's leading semi-truck accident law firms. We are respected throughout the state and region for the financial results and zealous advocacy we offer our clients. Our success comes in large part from our unique perspective. Prior to starting Evans & Strickland, Andrew Evans and Ryan Strickland actually represented insurance companies, trucking companies, and financial institutions in defending claims involving serious injury and death from truck accidents. Since then, they have used their knowledge of insurance company tactics to help recover hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of accident victims.
Protecting Evidence of Your Tractor-Trailer Accident
Our Atlanta truck accident lawyers understand how to protect injured persons’ interests by preserving evidence that often disappears. This includes driver daily logs, road markings from the accident, electronic control module (commonly referred to as, “black box”) data, and data from satellite tracking equipment placed on many commercial trucks. Evidence like this can be essential to ensure the victims of big rig accidents receive the full compensation which they deserve.
From the instant our law firm is retained, we begin working to protect our client's interests. We can hire accident reconstruction engineers to immediately begin determining how the accident occurred and take pictures of the scene evidence. Our attorneys then formally require trucking companies to preserve and/or produce all evidence related to the truck crash, including driving records for the driver and the trucking company, Federal Motor Carrier Safety records, eye witness information, and the vehicles involved in the accident.
Georgia Truck Accident Litigation
Our law firm has the expertise and experience necessary to bring semi-truck and commercial trucking accident cases to trial. We have a thorough understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations, as well as state regulations that govern truck drivers and trucking companies. The attorneys of Evans & Strickland have taken hundreds of depositions related to trucking accidents and we understand how to develop and pursue trucking accident litigation.
