Trucking Accidents

The business world moves faster than ever and the commercial vehicles that transport goods across Georgia and the U.S. are greatly impacted. The intense pressure to deliver goods more rapidly than ever results in compromises in the safety of the tractor-trailers and other trucks operating on our highways and city streets.

When these vehicles are involved in accidents, the sheer size and weight of the trucks often cause serious injuries. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a truck accident, or if a family member was killed in a truck accident that was caused by someone else's negligence, the Atlanta-based lawyers at Steel & Moss LLP can help.

We have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. Our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, so you only pay attorney fees if we obtain a recovery for you.

We Don't Back Down To Big Insurance Companies

When accidents involving commercial trucks occur, the company's insurance representatives and legal team spring into action. The mantra for these corporations is to minimize liability and publicity — and they are well-practiced at it. They may ask to speak with you about the accident or even pressure you to accept a settlement.

Do not accept any settlement offers and do not make statements to insurance providers — even your own — until you have contacted an attorney. We will handle all communication with insurance providers for you and conduct our own thorough investigation of the accident to get a complete understanding of what occurred.

With more than 80 years of cumulative experience, we have established a long track record of successfully representing clients in truck accidents and other personal injury cases. We know how to properly value these cases, and we make it clear from the start that we will litigate if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation.

We Review Every Detail Of An Accident To Maximize Results

Commercial drivers and the companies that employ them are required to follow strict federal and state laws that are designed to ensure the safe operation of 18-wheelers and other large vehicles. These include routine maintenance and weight limits, as well as limitations on the number of consecutive hours that drivers can operate a truck without resting.

We have thorough knowledge of these laws, and we know how to investigate truck accidents to determine if failure to adhere to any regulations may have contributed to the accident.

We invite you to contact us to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation. We will review the facts of your case and recommend the best steps to take. We work with clients throughout Georgia and the U.S. If your injuries limit your mobility, we will come to you.
