Georgia Logging Truck Accident Attorneys

In Georgia, forestry is a nearly $30 billion-a-year industry. Transporting all of that timber takes thousands of trucks, which means certain roads in our state are heavily trafficked with trucks loaded with tons of logs. Unfortunately, accidents occur and cause serious injuries to other drivers.

At Whitworth & McLelland, we help people recover compensation following collisions with log trucks on Georgia roads. Like other truck accident cases, those involving log trucks are highly complex. The industry is heavily regulated, which means that these cases require in-depth analysis and application of complicated laws and rules. Our attorneys, with more than 50 years of combined experience, understand the logging industry regulations and how to pursue compensation for clients injured in log truck collisions. You can rely on us to protect your rights following an accident.

Causes Of Log Truck Accidents

When a logging company sends its trucks out onto I-95 or any of the smaller roadways in Georgia, they need to make sure the logs are loaded properly so that the truck driver and the other drivers on the road can be safe. Serious accidents can occur if the proper steps are not taken. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate log truck accidents to determine the cause, which may be:

  • Improper loading of logs
  • Use of inadequate fasteners
  • Failure to perform safety checks before sending a truck out onto the road
  • Lack of proper warning signs and reflectors
  • Logs allowed to extend too far past the end of the truck
  • Drivers going too fast
  • Using trucks that are not maintained properly

Whether an accident involves a collision with a log truck, a rollover that scattered logs across the road or a log falling from a moving truck and onto a vehicle, the potential for serious injury is great. Our firm is equipped to handle the most serious cases, such as those involving spinal injuries and paralysis, brain injuries and wrongful death. We will work diligently to obtain full and fair compensation on your behalf so that you have the means to continue making ends meet after a log truck accident.
