Did A Collision With A Commercial Truck Injure You Or A Family Member?

Many highways and streets in Lawrenceville, throughout Gwinnett County and surrounding areas in Georgia carry a high volume of tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, construction rigs and other huge commercial vehicles. A notable percentage of the most serious and fatal auto wrecks in our area involve these trucks, and many people's lives are changed forever as a result.

Turn To A Lawyer Who Has Recovered Millions For Truck Accident Victims

Over the past 17-plus years, attorney Derek M. Hays has led the way in recovering millions of dollars for trucking accident victims and grieving families. You can turn to our firm for focused attention to your needs and a thorough crash investigation to establish fault and liability, conducted by specialized experts if needed. We will also track your medical condition and demand compensation reflecting the total impact of the truck accident on your life.

It is fairly easy to understand why commercial truck-vs.-car collisions are so devastating. The size and weight differences between these vehicles are enough to explain that. It is much harder to grasp why truckers and the companies that employ them sometimes risk public safety so blatantly.

Mr. Hays' case successes have included actions against a driver intoxicated by methamphetamine and against another trucker who was driving 70 mph in a 40 mph zone and caused a fatal wreck. Some other frequent causes of serious and deadly crashes are:

  • Driver fatigue due to driving "over hours" in defiance of federal regulations that mandate rest periods
  • Inadequate maintenance of 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks
  • Aggressive and unsafe driving maneuvers by truck drivers intent on "making time"

Truck drivers and transportation companies, along with their insurers, are known to have used shady tactics to remove or conceal evidence. Some value their own profits and reputations over innocent victims' lives and health. This makes it critical to contact our firm as soon as possible after receiving necessary medical attention.
