No one wants to think about a Georgia truck accident in monetary terms. When a truck accident happens, the first and primary concern is getting medical help and ensuring the safety of those involved in the crash. As a Marietta truck accident attorney, my clients' health and well being is my top priority.

However, often the cost of getting the necessary medical care is prohibitively expensive without help from the party legally responsible for the accident.

Recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) estimated the average cost of a large truck accident in 2009. According to the FMCSA*,
  • A fatal large truck accident cost about $7.2 million per crash.
  • A large truck crash with injuries cost about $331,000 per accident.
  • A large truck wreck without injuries or fatalities cost about $18,000 per incident.

Given these numbers, it can be difficult to recover both physically and financially without help.
