Trucks can be an intimidating sight on the Georgia roads. This is true whether it is a semi-truck delivering goods and passing through the state, construction trucks, and dump trucks. For drivers in other vehicles large or small that are sharing the road with these large vehicles, it is imperative to maintain vigilance and be cautious. Even when people are keeping a close eye on these vehicles, there can still be a crash. Since trucks are so large, heavy and often traveling at significant speeds, there is a good possibility that there will be injuries and fatalities. Those who have been affected by truck accidents must know they have the right to seek compensation in a legal filing.
