Atlanta Truck Accident Lawyers
Choose Burnside Law Firm as your most trusted truck accident lawyer in Atlanta. Our personal injury attorneys carry over 30 years of experience representing those that have been involved in all types of auto accidents. Truck accidents pose a serious threat to the safety of Atlanta drivers. Considering the massive size and weight discrepancy between a large commercial truck, often weighing close to 80,000 pounds, and the average passenger vehicle, a collision can be catastrophic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one out of every nine collisions involving a large truck results in a traffic fatality.
Whether you were personally injured or lost someone you love in a truck accident, Burnside Law Firm can help you realize your rights. You may be eligible to pursue a claim to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other significant expenses you incurred from the wreck.
