Bringing a Negligence Claim Against a Truck Driver or Trucking Company

Negligence is the typical cause of trucking accidents in Atlanta, Georgia. Negligence holds a person responsible for foreseeable harm caused to others as a result of their carelessness. Truck accident cases often include multiple claims against several defendants. These cases typically involve state and federal laws regulating the trucking industry and its drivers. For example, while a trucker may be held responsible for his or her own negligence, such as falling asleep behind the wheel. In this case, the trucker’s employer may also be held vicariously liable if the driver’s careless actions happened in the scope of his employment. Additionally, the trucking company may be sued for the negligent hiring, supervision and training of its employee.

Succeeding In a Trucking Accident In Atlanta, Georgia

To succeed in a negligence claim, you must prove that the defendant owed a duty of car and that the defendant breached this duty of care. Additionally, you must prove that the defendant’s actions caused your injury. Lastly, you must show that you suffered damages. The standard of care that a defendant must abide by is that of a reasonably prudent person. Drivers must also avoid foreseeable harm to others. If they fail to meet this standard, they have breached their duty. The element of causation requires you to show that, but for the defendant’s actions, the accident would not have occurred. It also requires you to show that the harm was a reasonably foreseeable. Establishing damages involves proof that you suffered specific losses. Damages typically include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and out-of-pocket costs.
