What to Do After a Truck Accident
If you, or someone you know, has been involved in a truck accident, the first thing you should do is call 911 and receive medical attention for any specific injuries. Make sure that once the police arrive, they file a police report on the accident that details all of the involved parties and the damages incurred. You should also collect the truck driver’s contact information, their company, their insurance, and any other involved drivers as well. Take pictures of your vehicle, the accident location, and the other vehicles involved. If you don’t need immediate medical attention, call Lamar Law Office as soon as possible. Our experienced truck accident lawyer in Atlanta, Anita Lamar, will guide you through the steps of what to do next to protect yourself in a future legal case.
After an accident, make sure that you do not talk with the truck driver’s insurance company alone. Some big insurance companies will call you to ask about your injuries and your testimony of the accident. Immediately after the accident, you may not fully understand the severity of your injuries, especially if adrenaline is still set in. By speaking with the insurance company about these things right after the accident, you could be admitting to lesser injuries or personal fault without realizing it. These big insurance companies could also lead you into a quick settlement for car damages and medical expenses. Although this offer may sound great, it’s often less than what you deserve. In order to protect yourself from the big trucking and insurance companies, you need an experienced truck accident attorney fighting on your behalf. Once you have been treated for any immediate medical needs, call Lamar Law Office to begin filing a truck accident claim with an experienced Atlanta truck accident lawyer on your side.
Filing a Negligence Claim Against a Trucking Company
In Atlanta, GA, negligence is the most common cause of trucking accidents. Negligence refers to the guilty party’s careless actions who failed to take care in a foreseeable dangerous circumstance. This may refer to a driver who fell asleep behind the wheel due to driving for an overextended period of time. There are many state and federal laws that regulate how many hours a truck driver may drive during one given period of time and basic precautions that truck drivers must take to protect themselves and others on the road. If a truck driver or a trucking company fails to follow these laws and causes an accident, their negligence makes them at fault for the accident and responsible for the injuries and damages caused to the other involved parties. If you believe that the truck driver was negligent and is responsible for your trucking accident, contact Lamar Law Office today. Our team can help you understand the federal and state laws that apply to truck drivers and file a claim for your injuries and personal damages. In some cases, the trucking company can also be sued by the injured party for their negligence in hiring or training their truck drivers. Anita Lamar, our personal injury attorney, will assess your case and help you to understand your rights in filing a case against the insurance companies and trucking companies.

Frequently Asked Questions
Personal injury law firms like Lamar Law Office have no upfront fees, but instead will charge a fee based on the compensation awarded in court. This is called a “contingency fee,” which is a percentage of the total settlement amount. In other words, there is no money owed unless you win your case.
Every case is unique, so it is impossible to quote a standard amount. Factors that go into determining how much your truck accident case is worth include lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and possibly funeral expenses. Pursuing a truck accident case can win you compensation for medical bills, treatment of injuries not covered by health insurance, lost wages, vehicle damage, and more. The best way to determine how much your case is worth is to contact Lamar Law Office for a free case evaluation.
Most times, insurance companies will offer you far less than the compensation you deserve. This settlement usually does not make up for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more. Working with Attorney Lamar can better your chances of getting the compensation you deserve for your accident, which is crucial to paying repair costs, debts, and ultimately moving on from your accident.
This is a complicated question, but in short, yes - you still may have an opportunity to recover compensation for your injuries even if you are partially at fault for the accident. This is because Georgia is a comparative negligence state. This means the court will determine your percentage of fault, and your award will be adjusted based on that percentage. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for the accident, your award will be reduced by 20%. This is another reason you need an experienced truck accident lawyer by your side to argue, depending on the circumstances, that you were minimally at fault for the accident.
