Atlanta Auto Accident and Medical Malpractice Attorney
Common knowledge has it that when you rear-end another vehicle, then you are always responsible for the injuries. However, while that is true in many cases, it is important to know that it is not always true.

As a Marietta truck accident lawyer, I know that there are many factors involved in car and truck accidents and that the driver in the rear is not always responsible. For example, tractor trailers are required to have rear impact guards to prevent cars from sliding underneath big rigs in the case of an accident. These rear impact guards must meet federal standards.

If you rear-end a tractor trailer, that does not have rear impact guards that meet federal standards correctly installed, and you are injured as a result of those substandard rear impact guards, then you may be entitled to damages.

A Marietta truck accident attorney can help you recover the damages to which you may be entitled if you have been hurt in the Marietta area. Please call an experienced personal injury lawyer today at 770.518.1133 to find out more about your potential recovery. We also encourage you to read our free e-book, 4 Common Mistakes That Will Ruin Your Georgia Car or Truck Claim, so that you can protect your legal rights after an accident.
