With two major port cities near the Golden Isles, commercial hauling is an important part of the economy of the area, resulting in heavy semi-truck traffic along the I-95 corridor between Savannah and Jacksonville. With the heavy traffic comes many serious truck and logging truck accidents.
An accident involving a semi-truck is different than a car accident for several reasons. Typically, the consequences of a semi-truck accident are far more serious because of the weight difference; additionally the rules and regulations for semis are different.
Our attorneys have handled many semi-truck cases over the years, and during the existence of the former law firm in which Bob Killian was a co-owner and co-founder, from 1997 through 2017, the firm recovered for clients over $215 million dollars.
When working on 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle cases, time is of the essence, and it’s extremely important to obtain all available evidence as soon as possible, including logbooks, manifests, and maintenance records. Furthermore, if the trucking company is at fault for not upholding industry rules and regulations, we work to ensure that justice is served for our clients. If an accident has resulted in a fatality, our attorneys are ready to help the family with a wrongful death lawsuit.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a semi-truck, the attorneys at the Killian Law Firm are here to assist you. We provide each potential client a free initial consultation to discuss your claim with an attorney, and there are no fees if we do not recover damages.
