Fatal Truck Accidents in Georgia
Every year, tens of thousands of individuals suffer injuries due to truck accidents occurring throughout the United States. Within the state of Georgia, a significant number of people endure severe injuries resulting from accidents involving large commercial vehicles. Unfortunately, there are many instances where individuals end up losing their lives as a result of these accidents.
In many cases, fatal truck accidents take place as a result of negligence. One of the most common causes of these accidents is excessive speed during a turn. When a truck exceeds a safe speed and attempts a sharp turn, the weight of the cargo can lead to the truck toppling over. Another frequent factor in truck accidents is when a truck driver swerves abruptly between lanes. This can lead to a devastating truck accident that results in fatal injuries.
Inadequately maintained roads can also contribute to fatal truck accidents. Potholes, debris on the road, and other defects and damage can lead to fatal accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people.
