Brunswick Truck Accident Attorneys

The Georgia accident law firm of Whitworth & McLelland works closely with its clients and their family members to ensure full compensation for serious injuries and deaths caused by commercial truck accidents, such as 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, log trucks and delivery vans.

Since the trucking industry is regulated by state and federal law, the hours a driver can drive, the training he or she must receive, and what must be done to maintain a truck's operational safety are regulated by various state and federal agencies. You may not realize it, but many commercial vehicles have a Crash Data Recorder ("Black Box") which can provide significant information related to your accident involving this kind of vehicle.

Tractor-Trailer Accidents On I-95

Interstate 95, which runs the entire eastern length of the United States, is a major commercial highway with an uncommonly high frequency of commercial truck accidents. The injuries sustained from commercial trucking accidents on I-95 and other highways in Georgia are usually very severe and often include serious head and spinal cord injuries. Fatal accidents occur all too often as well. We know our job is to pursue the maximum compensation for your losses, and we take it seriously.

I-95 and many smaller Georgia highways, such as U.S. Highways 341, 99, 84, 82 and 17 are frequently used by logging trucks to transport cargo to paper mills or other destinations. Logging truck accidents are rather frequent and can be very serious. We represent those injured by negligent log truck drivers on any Georgia roadway.
