Atlanta Truck Accident Wrongful Death Attorneys

If your loved one died in a truck accident because of someone else’s negligent behavior, you have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. Krause Golomb & Witcher are experienced Atlanta wrongful death attorneys committed to helping our clients get the financial recovery they are entitled to receive. Our attorneys know how to navigate the intricacies of Georgia’s laws and legal procedures. We are devoted to defending the rights of families in wrongful death cases.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Due to the sheer size of a commercial truck, it is not uncommon for serious injuries or fatalities to occur in an accident. When our clients suspect that their loved one died due to negligence, we perform a thorough investigation of the accident. We review the police report and other documentation verifying what happened. We use our research skills to find out if negligence was attributed to the other driver or other factors. Some common causes of commercial truck accidents are:

  • Driver inattention
  • Driver fatigue
  • Tire blowout
  • Lack of truck maintenance
  • Cargo not securely loaded and attached

Litigating Truck Accident Wrongful Death Cases

When the truck driver engages in negligent conduct, the truck company is liable if the driver was acting within the scope of his employment. As soon as we take on a wrongful death case, we gather and preserve the evidence quickly. We also interview witnesses. Since the truck company has its own legal team protecting its interests, we work aggressively and efficiently to look out for our client’s interests.

It is important to verify if the truck company complies with federal laws in the manner that it conducts its business. When the truck company is suspected of negligence, some of the materials we review include:

  • Accident records
  • Driver’s log books
  • Witness statements
  • Truck maintenance reports
  • Truck company’s safety policies
