Uncovering the Cause of Your Carrollton, GA Construction Truck Accident
To prove you are entitled to compensation, our law firm will listen to your version of the events that led to the collision and review your truck accident report. Our Carrollton personal injury attorney will also:
- Identify the type of construction truck involved in your accident
- Identify the at-fault party or parties and their negligent actions
- Compile the documents and physical evidence that prove your case
- Canvass for accident scene for photos and video footage
We also consult experts who support your version of events, including accident scene reconstruction whenever possible. Our goal is to build a strong evidence file that steers your case toward a financial settlement so you can have the opportunity to recover and move forward.
The Cost of Treating Your Construction Truck Accident Injuries
No two injury cases have identical values since the amount of your monetary recovery will vary based on several factors, including the severity of your injuries and the extent of your treatment plan.
According to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) research, there is a 20-30 times difference in size, height, and weight between a truck and your passenger vehicle. Injuries you might sustain in a collision can include:
- Broken bones
- Severe burns
- Limb loss
- Head injuries
Your injuries can require extensive medical care and result in loss of work and productivity. The costs of treating your injuries are recoverable from the person or entity whose negligence caused the accident.

The Statute Of Limitations On Carrollton Construction Truck Accidents
The state of Georgia limits the time you have to file your lawsuit. In general, O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33 gives you two years. The statutory clock starts running on the date of the accident in personal injury cases and on the date of your loved one’s passing in wrongful death cases.
An expired statute of limitations could prevent you from filing your lawsuit at all or lead to its immediate dismissal. The sooner you get our law firm involved in your case, the more time we have to ensure your potential lawsuit is filed. It also means we have time to conduct a thorough investigation and interview witnesses while their memories are fresh.

The Role of Liability in Proving Your Right to Recover Damages
Financial liability for your construction truck accident falls to the person or entity whose negligence caused the collision. In a construction truck accident, more than one person could be at fault, including:
- The truck operator
- The construction company
- Truck or parts manufacturer
- Truck repair or maintenance facility
To identify the appropriate party or parties to pursue, we collect evidence that proves the following legal components of negligence:
- Duty of care: The at-fault party’s responsibility to provide you with reasonable care, such as to operate construction equipment safely
- Breach of duty: The at-fault party’s failure to meet their legal obligation of duty of care by, for example, failing to abide by regulations
- Causation: Proof that the accident would not have happened if not for the at-fault party’s actions
- Damages: Proof of the financial consequences of the accident and your resulting injuries
Our investigation will meet the criteria to demonstrate the at-fault party’s negligence that entitles you to compensation. It will also help our team build a strong case against each potential at-fault party and negotiate with their insurance companies.
