As a Marietta truck attorney, I am encouraged by the new technologies available to help avoid serious Georgia truck crashes. However, it is important that we all recognize the importance of these technologies and identify their limitations.

Specifically, it is important to remember that:
  1. Technologies Must Be Installed to Prevent Accidents. Either the government must regulate the installation of technology, or trucking companies must realize their importance and agree to install the technology voluntarily if the technology is going to be used.
  2. Drivers Must Use the Technologies to Avoid Wrecks. Once the technology is installed, drivers must be trained on how to use it effectively and must be willing to use it. For example, drivers must listen to any beeps or other warning sounds emitted from one of the technological warning devices.
  3. The Technologies Will Not Be 100% Effective. Unfortunately, there is no single technology, or combination of technologies, that will eliminate the risk of serious injury or death from a Georgia truck crash.

If you have been hurt in a Georgia truck accident, please contact an experienced Marietta truck lawyer today for a free consultation about your rights and your potential recovery. We can be reached at 770.518.1133.
