AUTOMOBILE & TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

Automobile and trucking accidents can cause debilitating, severe, and permanent injuries. These accidents can also result in significant financial losses to the individuals and families involved. Damages may include lost wages, medical expenses, funeral expenses, as well as emotional disarray caused by the trauma.

The Atlanta auto and trucking accident lawyers at Hinton & Powell bring more than 96 years of combined experience protecting the rights of those injured in automobile accidents. If you have been injured in an automobile or trucking accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your losses.

AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENTS

Automobile accidents can happen anywhere and may result in physical injuries as well as property damages. Some of the most common types of auto accidents, include:

  • Side-impact collisions. Also known as being broadsided or t-boned, side-impact collisions happen when the side of one vehicle is hit by the rear or front of another vehicle.
  • Rear-end collisions. This type of automobile accident occurs when one car hits the vehicle in front of it. The most common type of injury associated with rear-end collisions is whiplash.
  • Vehicle rollovers. When vehicles make sharp turns at high speeds they can often flip and roll. While all automobiles are subject to rollover accidents, SUVS are most susceptible.
  • Sideswipe collisions. These types of accidents happen when two vehicles are parallel and swipe each other.
  • Multi-vehicle collisions. Accidents that involve more than two vehicles often occur on bus highways or freeways. These accidents are also known as multi-vehicle pile-ups and involve several vehicles.
  • Head-on collisions. Often resulting in traumatic injury or fatality, head-on collisions occur when the front ends of two vehicles collide.
  • Single-vehicle accidents. When only one vehicle is involved in an accident, it is usually caused by the driver hitting another object. Single-car accidents will typically result in personal injury and property damage.

At Hinton & Powell, we have a proven record of helping victims involved in automobile accidents recover their losses.

TRUCKING ACCIDENTS

Accidents involving tractor trailers are typically more serious and complex than typical automobile accidents. Without an experienced trucking accident attorney, it can be difficult to pinpoint the actual cause of the accident. Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Lack of driver experience and training
  • Defective equipment and poorly maintained trucks
  • Driver fatigue
  • Unreasonable driving schedules
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded trucks
  • Driver intoxication
  • Dangerous weather conditions
  • Excessive speeding
  • Defective roadways

Due to the complex nature of trucking accidents, it’s imperative to protect your rights with the experienced legal team at Hinton & Powell. Our attorneys have the resources and knowledge to fight trucking companies and hold the responsible party accountable.
