The devastation and chaos that accompanies a truck accident is often too much to bear. Unlike car accidents, truck accidents almost always result in serious injuries or death. When a trucking company is involved, they often send representatives to the accident scene in an effort to assess the situation before a victim has even thought of hiring a lawyer.

Causes of Trucking Accidents in Atlanta
Almost all truck accidents can be avoided, but drivers of passenger vehicles and semi trucks continue to make the following mistakes that put each other at risk:
- Distracted driving
- Following too closely
- Unsafe lane changes
- Driving in blind spots
- Driving while intoxicated
- Falling asleep at the wheel
When you put your car or truck in drive, you must recognize the responsibility you have. If you perform any of these unsafe driving practices, you are putting your life— and the lives of others— at risk. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over 4,000 fatal truck accidents occured in the United States in 2015. When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, your only priority should be arriving safely, everything else can wait.
