Fry | Goehring successfully helps the injured recover the compensation they deserve.
Atlanta Truck Accident Attorneys
Trust Our Experienced Trial Lawyers
Accidents involving trucks, ranging from flatbed freight trucks to commercial trailers, are very different from ordinary car wrecks. The injuries sustained as a result of these accidents are often significantly worse on account of the sheer size of the vehicles, and they are far more likely to end in a devastating fatality than normal automobile accidents. Even when the unfortunate victim survives, families and loved ones are then left to deal with a life-changing tragedy that often creates long-term debilitation and exorbitant medical bills.
If you have been injured in such a catastrophe, it is absolutely essential to reach out to our lawyers as soon as possible. At Fry | Goehring, we are devoted to investigating your case and bringing you the justice you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents
The number of accidents involving “big rigs” and commercial vehicles have significantly increased over the past decade. Many factors are involved in the recent spike in these numbers. Commercial drivers are frequently guilty of speeding, failing to stay in their lane, following too close, disobeying traffic signs, driving while fatigued or impaired in some manner, and exceeding the maximum hours of service allowed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
Determining Who Is Liable
In addition to driver infractions, trucking companies are often negligent in their responsibilities. Trucking companies sometimes fail to perform federally regulated safety and maintenance requirements. Companies also sometimes pressure drivers to fabricate or destroy driver’s logs, and they have even been known to encourage drivers to exceed legal limits on driving hours. We are ready to determine whether any other parties besides the individual driver are also at fault for the suffering you have endured.
Our knowledgeable attorneys can carefully investigate to see how companies have upheld or relaxed required standards for truck drivers and cargo loads, including requirements for:
- Performing regular inspections of the trucks and cargo
- Repairing or replacing damaged trucks
- Maintaining special, unsecured parts on heavy vehicles like tractors and trailers
- Ensuring proper weight loading of a tractor-trailer
- Providing full load security
The Importance of Securing Legal Support
We understand and empathize with those who have suffered the severe consequences of being involved in a truck accident. However, it is important to never simply agree to waive your rights for compensation, even if you feel overwhelmed in the moment. The exorbitant costs of your hospital visits, medical treatments, and rehabilitative therapy will not be covered by general insurance. Moreover, you will also be dealing with lost wages or salary from having to take time off after the incident, which may extend for several weeks, if not months. Don’t be a victim of the irresponsible failures of the commercial trucking industry; instead, turn to Fry | Goehring for dedicated support.
