You have the right to sue that at-fault party in a construction truck accident under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §51-1-6. Construction companies and their drivers all owe you a duty of care. If that care got breached because of their negligence, you could receive financial compensation for any damages related to the accident.

Will Your Lawyers Help Me Calculate My Damages?
Calculating how much your damages are worth is an essential part of filing your claim. You can’t negotiate for a settlement if you don’t know how much you can get in compensation first. There are many damages you can get compensated for.
Vehicle Repair and Replacement
Large construction trucks can cause massive accidents to occur, such as an underride accident or rollover. When these happen, cars are often left in a state of total disrepair. Sometimes, the damages are so bad and extensive that the car needs to get replaced altogether.
Repairing a car isn’t cheap, and neither is paying for a replacement. Since the accident wasn’t your fault, you don’t have to pay for any of the vehicle damages you have. Instead, we will help you get the at-fault party to reimburse or compensate you for them at their expense.
Construction truck accidents often have some of the worst fatality rates out of all the traffic accidents one can endure. If your loved one died due to the actions of a negligent party, we will ensure that they get held liable for:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Any lost wages and financial support the deceased provided
Money can’t replace a loved one, but it can help you get through this extremely challenging time. We won’t let the party responsible for the construction truck accident that took your loved one’s life get away with their negligence.
Disability and Disfigurement
Because of the devastating nature of truck accidents in general, many people who suffer through one often end up with some form of disability or disfigurement. Disability and disfigurement are often permanent and can drastically decrease your enjoyment of life and make living a lot harder.
You may need various services such as:
- Substitute services
- Assisted living services
- Various medical equipment
- Physical therapy
These can all rack up an excessive amount of bills that you shouldn’t have to pay for. Our attorneys will work hard to factor all of these into your final settlement total.
