Truck Accidents


Atlanta is home to many of the largest and most important transportation and logistics companies in the country. There is a constant flow of commercial trucks navigating throughout the city’s streets and highways every day. Due to their size and weight, these vehicles can cause substantial damage in collisions with smaller passenger cars.

If you or a loved one has recently been injured in a truck crash, it’s essential to seek the guidance of a skilled attorney to assess your situation. At Brunson Grant Law Firm, our Atlanta truck accident lawyers can help identify those responsible for your damages and fight for fair compensation on your behalf.

Causes of Commercial Vehicle Collisions in Atlanta

Operating large commercial vehicles demands a high level of responsibility. Truck drivers and their employers must prioritize road safety. Unfortunately, when negligence comes into play, serious collisions can occur. Whatever the specific cause of a truck wreck, our experienced trucking attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to determine liability for the victims’ injuries.

Distracted/Reckless Driving

Truck drivers are not immune to unsafe driving practices. They may speed or drive recklessly in their pursuit of meeting tight deadlines. Distracted driving is also a significant concern, as truckers may engage in activities that divert their attention from the road. Even a momentary lapse can lead to devastating accidents.


Some trucking companies may impose unreasonable working hours on their drivers, despite regulations limiting shift lengths. Long hours on the road can cause driver fatigue, resulting in slower reactions or even falling asleep behind the wheel.


Operating trucks requires specialized skills, given their longer stopping distances and larger turning radiuses. Adequate training is crucial, but sometimes truck drivers may cause accidents due to inexperience. In such cases, our experienced lawyers can hold both the trucker and their employer accountable through a civil claim.

Truck Equipment Problems

Regular vehicle inspection and maintenance are essential in the trucking industry. However, some companies and their employees overlook these requirements, especially when pressured by tight schedules, leading to potential equipment failures on the road.

Vehicle Loading Problems

Properly securing and balancing cargo is vital for safe transport. When trucking companies fail to do so, it can result in cargo becoming dislodged, falling out, or causing the truck to become imbalanced.

Trucking accident cases involve an in-depth knowledge of state and federal trucking regulations.
