Helping Victims Of Tractor-Trailer Accidents On I-95 And Other Highways

Commercial truck drivers who operate 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, log trucks or delivery vans are regulated by state and federal laws that stipulate the number of hours they can drive, truck maintenance requirements and much more. Sadly, many fail to adhere to these regulations.

At the Law Office of Brad S. McLelland, my job as your attorney is to pursue the maximum compensation for your losses. With over 20 years of experience, I help the injured in Brunswick and surrounding areas recover compensation due to all types of negligence on the part of truckers and trucking companies. Some of the most common types of negligence are:

  • Reckless driving or drunk driving
  • Improper driver training
  • Load shift
  • Lane drift/changing lanes without signaling
  • Driver fatigue/asleep at the wheel
  • Tire blowout
  • Lack of proper safety reflector markings
  • Absence of a rear guard to prevent underriding
  • Improperly parking on the shoulder of the road
  • Wide-angled turns
  • Excessive speed
  • Improper maintenance
  • Excessive hours on the road

It Only Makes Sense To Choose An Attorney Who Knows The Roads

An uncommonly high frequency of commercial truck accidents occur on Interstate 95 (a major commercial highway that runs the entire eastern length of the U.S.) and other U.S. highways that run through Georgia such as highways 341, 99, 84, 82 and 17. Many are frequently used by logging trucks to transport cargo to paper mills or other destinations. The injuries sustained from these accidents are usually very severe and often include serious head and spinal cord injuries and even death.

Because I’m a local lawyer, I personally know all the roads near Brunswick and the surrounding areas. I drive them all the time. Why hire an out-of-state attorney who has no idea what the road conditions are actually like? It’s details like these that can potentially play a major role in a truck accident claim.

Taking Action To Preserve The Evidence

You may not realize it, but many commercial vehicles have a crash data recorder (“black box”) that can provide significant information related to your accident involving this kind of vehicle. However, it’s important to act quickly to preserve this data, along with witness statements, skid marks on the road and other types of evidence. Don’t wait to contact me after the accident. I need to get started gathering and protecting as much evidence as possible on your behalf. Don’t doubt that the insurance company is already ahead of you doing this!
