For many years, the recovery of personal injury and wrongful death compensation for persons injured in Georgia truck wrecks has formed perhaps the most important part of our practice at the Cuffie Law Firm. It was a fatal truck accident case in which our lawyers established a landmark legal principle in Georgia-proving that even the poorest people can collect high damages verdicts when they lose a loved one.
We’ve represented individuals and families in big rig trucking accidents for more than 25 years. We’ve handled these cases all over Georgia, especially in the I-75 corridor south to the Florida line. Over our years of experience, we have developed a close familiarity with the federal motor carrier safety regulations, so we know just what to look for when we’re investigating tractor-trailer accident cases involving driver fatigue, excess loads, tire blowouts, inadequate inspection, and poor vehicle maintenance.
Handling Complex Trucking Accident Cases
Our attorneys also understand that many different defendants might be involved in an 18-wheeler crash. For example, one insurer might cover the tractor, while another insurance company covers the trailer. Insurance matters alone are difficult to handle in truck crashes. The driver might be an independent contractor, and the vehicle itself might be leased. Complex coverage issues involving multiple insurance companies can result in confusion and claim payment denials. Insurance carriers push back hard in trucking accidents. To ensure the burden does not fall to the innocent victims, we fight harder to protect your rights and interests against them.
Our experience with serious injury and fatal truck accidents means that we won’t miss any detail essential to proving your case. In cases involving permanent disabilities or other severe injuries, our experience with medical experts can help ensure that no element of your actual damages and intangible losses will be overlooked.
