Q: I think my Georgia truck accident was caused by a drunk driver, but the trucker is refusing to take a drug or alcohol test. Will it hurt my case if a trucker refuses to take a drug or alcohol test after an accident?
A:If you have been hurt in a Georgia truck wreck, then you may be entitled to damages whether or not the truck driver was operating a vehicle on drugs or with a blood alcohol content of 0.04% or higher. That said, the Department of Transportation views a refusal to take a drug test the same way as a positive drug test, and an Atlanta truck accident lawyer may be able to present evidence that the trucker refused to take an alcohol or drug test in your case.
