Truck Crashes in Henry County
If you’ve been injured by someone else’s negligence in a truck accident, no one needs to tell you exactly how terrifying, violent, and dangerous such accidents are. The semi-trucks that we share our roadways with are so large, heavy, and cumbersome that accidents involving them are destined to be serious (and the occupants of the other vehicles involved tend to take the brunt of things). If you’ve been so injured, you shouldn’t wait to consult with an experienced truck crash lawyer in Henry County.
Truck Accidents and Negligence
Truck drivers are professional drivers who are responsible for navigating their rigs safely through traffic and across our highways and byways, and truck driver negligence in the form of distraction, impairment, exhaustion, excess speed, and/or aggression is often the impetus behind life-threatening truck accidents. This isn’t, however, the end of the story, and other entities can share or shoulder this liability, including:
- The Trucking Company – The trucking company bears a heavy burden of responsibility when it comes to dangerous truck crashes. It is responsible for maintaining the rigs in its fleet in safe working order, for hiring experienced and well-qualified truck drivers and truck mechanics, for implementing appropriate maintenance and safety checks – and much more.
- The Truck Manufacturer – The truck manufacture is responsible for manufacturing tractor-trailers that are based on safe designs and that are roadworthy.
- The Truck Mechanics – The truck mechanics are responsible for repairing and maintaining semis so that they are equal to the heavy-duty hauls ahead.
