Cargo trucks carried 72.5% of all freight in the U.S. in 2019, according to the most recent data published by the American Trucking Association (ATA). Cargo trucks travel through virtually every state, and most of those trips are accident-free. Even though truck accidents aren’t that common, they still happen, and when they do, they can leave massive damages in their wake.
Our Mableton cargo truck accident lawyers will provide you with the assistance and resources you need to file a claim for a settlement. You don’t need to go through this process alone. We have helped many of our clients throughout the years get the compensation they deserve.
If we can’t win compensation for your claim, you owe us nothing. Please call us today at (404) 400-4000.
Get Compensated for Your Damages
The cargo truck accident attorneys here at John Foy & Associates will aggressively pursue the proper amount of compensation you need for your damages. We can help you factor in many of your damages into your settlement.
A cargo truck accident can hurt you in many different ways. Contents of the cargo truck can spill out onto the road, or a crash can lead you to suffer from broken bones, whiplash, traumatic brain injury, and much more. These injuries aren’t easy to treat and will require multiple hospital visits, physical therapy, prescriptions, and other lasting forms of treatment.
Medical expenses aren’t cheap, and even one visit to the emergency room can cost several thousand dollars. To treat more serious wounds, you could end up with a hospital bill that seems almost impossible to pay off. Don’t pay for any of your medical treatment out of pocket. We can help you get compensated or reimbursed for all of it.
It’s no secret that any truck accident has a high fatality rate despite its rarity. This is mainly due to the large size and weight of most trucks, especially cargo trucks. When a smaller and lighter passenger vehicle crashes into a cargo truck, the occupants of that passenger vehicle face a greater risk of death.
Even though money can’t replace the loss of a loved one, it can help you cover for:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Any financial support the deceased individual was giving to others
- Emotional turmoil you and others may be facing
We want to get justice for what happened and will work hard to hold the at-fault driver liable for your damages and their actions.
Getting into an accident with a cargo truck can leave you with some pretty nasty injuries. Some injuries you can recover from with no issue at all, but others may require proper rest and time to heal completely. During this time, you may not be able to work, or you may have to work in a reduced capacity.
If this is the case, our cargo truck accident attorneys will help you recover your lost wages. Your accident wasn’t your fault, so you shouldn’t have to suffer even more by being unable to earn money.
Your vehicle will most definitely require repairs after a cargo truck accident. Vehicle repairs, like medical expenses, can be extremely costly. Instead of paying for all the repairs yourself, you can get compensation for them or get them completely reimbursed.
Cars are vital pieces of equipment that everyone uses to get around, run errands, and go to work. They have become synonymous with our daily lives, and living without one can be a huge detriment. Our attorneys will ensure that you can get your car repairs covered or get money to help purchase a replacement if necessary.
You Don’t Have Long to File a Claim
The state of Georgia only gives cargo truck accident victims two years to file a claim against the at-fault party. Many people overestimate the time that they have and let their case expire under the statute of limitations. Once this happens, there is nothing more you can do to recover a settlement.
To prevent this, we recommend reaching out to our lawyers as soon as possible after your accident. We will help guide you through all of the right steps and ensure that the insurance companies don’t pressure you into accepting a low settlement offer. Build a strong case and file at the right time with our team today.
