Each day, thousands of innocent people are hurt or killed because of the negligence of other drivers. Likewise, thousands of people are killed by truckers who fall asleep at the wheel, drive too many hours, speed, suddenly change lanes or fail to secure their loads.
Someone who is injured or killed because of the negligence of another driver is entitled to recover damages if they can prove that the other party was liable. This is true even if the injured person is partially at fault for the collision.
The Macon GA Attorneys at Reynolds, Horne & Survant have successfully handled thousands of car, motorcycle, and truck wreck cases, recovering millions of dollars for their clients.
As with car wrecks, truck wrecks often occur as a result of negligence by the truck driver or even the truck company. Negligence occurs when a truck driver or truck company fails to act with reasonable care, resulting in injury to an individual. Failure to exercise reasonable care may involve:
Truck companies may also be negligent in their supervision or hiring of truck drivers, leading to a truck wreck. They may hire unqualified drivers or push their drivers to drive when tired or to drive at unsafe speeds. The Macon GA Attorneys at Reynolds, Horne & Survant have successfully thousands of truck wreck cases, recovering millions of dollars for its satisfied clients. These cases include:
Riding motorcycles is a lot of fun, but it is potentially a very dangerous activity. Each year, there are 89,000 motorcycle wrecks, and because the rider is only protected by his helmet and other gear, those wrecks are often catastrophic. A motorcycle rider is 35 times more likely to die in a wreck than the driver of a car. Indeed, 5% of all motorcycle wrecks are fatal. Interestingly, more than half of all wrecks occur when a driver turns left in front of the motorcyclist.
Handling motorcycle wreck cases is similar to the handling of car wreck cases, but there are stark differences. For example, jurors are often prejudiced against motorcyclists thinking that riders are reckless or are somehow responsible for the accident. Also, motorcycles are often hard to see, and many potential jurors have had some sort of negative experience with a motorcycle, perhaps an accident or close call. Consequently, they can be sympathetic to the defendant driver who caused the wreck. These and other factors make trying a motorcycle case more difficult than trying a car wreck case.
Our firm has handled hundreds of motorcycle wreck cases. Tragically, we normally find our firm representing a surviving member of the rider’s family because the rider was killed in the wreck. One of the recent cases we handled resulted in a recovery of $2 million which represented all of the insurance available. We also recently recovered $3.5 million for a client who lost one of his legs as a result of a driver failing to yield and turning in front of our client.
