Injured in an accident caused by a truck tire blowout? We’ll help you get the compensation you deserve.
If you live in Atlanta or the surrounding metro Atlanta area and travel our interstates, it’s likely that you have witnessed a tractor trailer accident at some point. Tractor trailers use our interstates more than any other type of vehicles in the United States, because the interstates are the most efficient and least costly way to deliver their loads in a timely manner. These trucks are on the road for hours at a time without stopping, which places extreme stress on the engines, as well as on the wheels and tires.
Some drivers are very conscientious about performing the routine maintenance which is necessary on their rigs, which includes checking the tires during pre-trip inspections, but others are not so conscientious. For trucks that are not inspected and maintained regularly, blowouts are much more likely to occur. A blowout can happen in an instant as the result of underinflated or overinflated tires, tires with worn tread, or tires with tread separation.
A blowout can easily cause the truck driver to lose control, causing serious accidents and serious injury to those on the interstate who are driving in close proximity to the tractor trailer. Tractor trailer tire blowouts have even been known to cause death in some cases.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed as the result of a tractor trailer blowout and you would like to consult with an attorney free of charge to discuss your options, contact the Bennett Law Group in Atlanta, Georgia today. We have achieved significant results for previous clients in handling their catastrophic collision cases. Here are testimonials from some of our satisfied clients.
A tractor trailer collision is not like an auto accident. Any time a tractor trailer is involved in an accident, the situation immediately becomes more complex. The trucking company has their own investigators and post-accident team that are immediately dispatched to the scene of the accident to begin gathering evidence in an attempt to mitigate the liability of the driver and the trucking company.
This is why it’s imperative to your case that you retain experienced and knowledgeable legal representation immediately after the accident. You need attorneys on your side who are skilled in the complexities of trucking litigation and will begin working right away to preserve the evidence in your case and make sure that no incriminating evidence “disappears”. You need attorneys who understand the tactics that the trucking and insurance companies will try to use to lessen their liability in the collision.
