Brunswick Truck Accident Attorney
Aggressive Advocacy for Those in Need
Commercial trucks and drivers, including tractor-trailers, log trucks, delivery vans, 18-wheelers, and more are heavily regulated by state and federal laws, but unfortunately, sometimes drivers fail to adhere to these laws and cause accidents, most of which result in serious injuries. Because drivers aren’t the only parties who can be held liable for damages in a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial truck, determining liability can be especially tricky and it’s often necessary to hire a personal injury lawyer to sort through the details. A Brunswick truck accident attorney can be by your side in an instant when you call after your accident. With more than two decades of experience settling cases, The Law Office of Brad S. McLelland, PC. can be relied on to provide you with clear communication and aggressive advocacy against the negligent parties who caused your injuries. I can ease your suffering by pursuing the financial compensation you deserve.
We Know Georgia Roads
When you’ve been injured in Brunswick or Georgia, you deserve to be represented by a local lawyer who understands your situation. I know all the roads and highways, including those that pose more dangers for car and commercial truck accidents.
Highways to be aware of include Interstate 95 – a major commercial highway that runs the entire eastern length of the U.S. – as well as Georgia highways like 341, 99, 84, 82, and 17. Many of these highways are used by logging trucks to transport cargo, and these accidents are often severe and result in catastrophic injuries and even death.
Common Types of Negligence
Having handled countless accidents and worked with a variety of clients, I’m able to use my knowledge to help clients whether they’ve suffered a spinal cord injury or have been injured by a drunk driver.
Common types of negligence associated with truck accidents include:
- Reckless driving
- Driving under the influence
- Tire blowouts
- Lack of proper safety reflector markings
- Lane drifting or changing lanes without signaling
- Excessive speed
- Improper maintenance
- Excessive hours on the road
- Fatigued driving
- Wide-angled turns
One of the most common forms of negligence as it relates to truck accidents is fatigued driving. Commercial truck drivers often have to transport cargo over long distances, often overnight, and though they’re required by law to take meal and rest breaks, it’s often not enough to keep drivers alert. Fatigued driving is reckless and can prevent drivers from responding to emergency situations quickly.
Additionally, some commercial truck drivers struggle with substance abuse and are known to drink or take amphetamines to keep themselves alert on long drives. Intoxicated driving can lead to risky behaviors such as speeding, running red lights, and more.

Because of their size and weight, trucks are known to cause catastrophic injuries, or injuries that are so severe that they cause permanent or long-term damage. These injuries can include burns, amputations, spinal cord and neck injuries that lead to paralysis, and head and brain injuries.
The more serious the injury, the more expensive it can be to treat it, which is why injuries after truck accidents can cost thousands of dollars to recover from. Most people aren’t prepared to be injured in a motor vehicle accident and put out of work. I’ve recovered millions of dollars and know how to support your claim so the negligent truck driver or their company is held responsible.
Through my advocacy, I can recover the following damages:
- Medical bills, including costs of hospital stays, medications, surgeries, and physical therapy
- Lost wages or future earning capacity from missing or having to quit work
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
You shouldn’t have to worry about a legal case when you’re dealing with the pain and trauma from your injuries. I can get to work for you while you focus on healing at home or in the hospital.
