Driver Killed in I-75 Semi-Truck Collision

By Grant Law Office on May 13, 2013 - Comments off

A driver was killed and another was injured in a Georgia big rig accident involving a collision of two semi-tractor trailers. According to a report by The Associated Press, the fatal truck accident occurred on I-75 about 17 miles north of Valdosta in Cecil. The Valdosta Daily Times reports that the cause of the crash remains under investigation. Officials suspect that either the rear truck was going too fast or that the front truck was going too slow. The driver of the rear truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash and the driver of the front semi was hospitalized.

Because of the size and weight of trucks, the injured victims of truck accidents are typically occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. It is possible, however, for truck drivers to suffer serious or fatal injuries as well. A wrongful death suit against the at-fault driver or trucking firm may help provide the support needed for funeral expenses, lost future wages, loss of companionship, and other related damages. In many cases, it is advisable for the family of someone killed while working to pursue compensation through multiple avenues.

In addition to informing families of their legal options, a skilled wrongful death attorney can also help ensure that fair compensation is offered for their significant losses. The at-fault driver may deny responsibility for the crash and the insurance companies involved may attempt to save money by offering an inadequate settlement.

An experienced truck accident lawyer will ensure that the rights of victims and their families protected throughout the proceedings.
