Early this week, Atlanta citizens were hit with a snowstorm that some are now calling Snowmaggedon ’11. Along with reports of an unprecedented 4.4 inches of snowfall over the last few days, freezing rain has led to dangerous driving conditions. Even today, many residents are confined to their homes.
In addition to unprecedented living conditions, the snowstorm has left many residents wondering how to navigate the roads and icy conditions.
Unfortunately, just as many Atlanta citizens are unaware of how to manage the driving conditions, so too are many truckers. In instances where we should see chains employed by all truck drivers, some semi-trucks do not have chains and some truck drivers are still driving much too fast for the conditions.
These reprehensible actions have repercussions for both the truck drivers and other citizens on the road. Trucking accidents are some of the more dangerous because of the large discrepancy in sizes between 18-wheelers and passenger vehicles.
If you have been injured, or a loved one has been killed in a trucking accident in Georgia, you may be entitled to compensation. Please speak with one of our experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. today for your free case evaluation.
