Accidents Caused by Driving with Overweight Loads

Both truck drivers and trucking companies are required by law to follow certain weight restrictions for their vehicles. Despite this, some drivers operate their vehicles with loads that exceed legal limits in and around the broader Atlanta area. If a truck driver who is suspected to have failed to obey the law has hurt you or a loved one, you should consider pursuing legal action in order to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.

File a Claim to Recover Compensation

The financial burdens associated with a truck accident can accumulate quickly and may persist over a considerable period of time, depending upon the process of your recovery. It is with that in mind that our legal team in Atlanta can help you develop a claim to recover compensation for the following:

  • The medical and rehabilitative care you will need to recover
  • The amount of income you lose while you make your recovery
  • Any diminishment to the quality of your life

Whatever the details of your claim happen to be, our legal team in Atlanta can evaluate your claim and then potentially fight on your behalf for the compensation you need to pay for your resulting injuries and damages.

Consult with a Truck Driver Error/Negligence Attorney
