We’ve been involved in numerous claims in excess of $1 million, including several that exceeded $10 million. We have what it takes to go to court against the insurance companies and trucking outfits, and we have the national experience to follow wherever the case leads us, even if that’s to a deposition in New York City. Our clients can’t afford to wait for a fair resolution, so we won’t wait either. We put the pressure on the trucking and insurance companies to quickly pay the compensation our clients’ deserve, and we go head-to-head if they won’t come to terms.
What makes trucking accidents so catastrophic?
Semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, tanker trucks, and other commercial vehicles present serious hazards on Georgia’s roads when they are not properly operated or maintained. Their size and weight make them likely to cause major damage to other vehicles if they’re involved in collisions. We’ve seen trucking accidents cause:
- Neck injuries
- Head trauma
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Loss of limb
- Internal organ damage
- Broken bones
- Burn injuries
- Facial trauma
Why you need an attorney’s help immediately after a trucking accident
Truck drivers are often on the road for extended periods of time, making them riskier drivers who are prone to fatigue. Additionally, trucks and trailers often don’t have the proper safety equipment to allow for safe operation.
Unfortunately, after a devastating crash, trucking companies sometimes rush to cover up evidence of their negligence, whether that means changing logs to conceal rest violations or losing track of maintenance reports. Many trucking companies have lawyers on-call within hours, sometimes even within minutes, of an accident.
That’s why you need to act quickly, too. Contact a South Georgia truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after a collision with a commercial truck. The sooner you pursue counsel, the sooner we can begin analyzing every detail concerning your accident to build the strongest possible case.
When you work with Hudson King, we can help preserve evidence, document details, and interview every witness. Truck accident claims are often more difficult to navigate than car accident claims because they typically involve consulting a variety of people and experts in order to determine who is at fault.
We’ve successfully represented victims and families throughout Georgia, and we’re ready to bring our expertise and compassion to your case, too.

We understand trucking regulations and the causes of truck crashes
Trucking companies and their drivers are subject to stringent governmental regulations. At Hudson King, our attorneys know these regulations inside and out and use them to maximize recovery on behalf of clients.
We also know when to consult with engineers, visual acuity experts, regulatory experts, and law enforcement to determine the true cause of a trucking accident. We’re skilled at investigating the wreck and establishing regulation violations or other types of negligence or wrongdoing. We often even go a step further and secure the driving history, insurance status, and blood alcohol level of the truck driver. This information allows us to begin to build your case and identify facts that will allow us to seek a positive result.
