Q: Who is Liable if I Lost My Loved One in a Georgia Truck Crash?
A:There are many possible defendants in a Georgia fatal truck accident. If you have lost a loved one in a Georgia tractor trailer wreck, you understandably need money to pay your loved one’s medical and funeral expenses, to compensate you for your loved one’s lost wages, and to pay you for your pain and suffering. However, knowing who is liable and who should be sued can be tricky.
The first step in determining liability is contacting an Atlanta truck accident attorney who will conduct a full investigation into the cause of the accident. Depending on the results of that investigation, your Atlanta truck accident lawyer may suggest that any of the following parties could be liable:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck owner
- The truck manufacturer
- A truck part manufacturer (such as the tire manufacturer)
- The person or company you performed maintenance on the truck
