Almost every consumer product, from a thumb tack to a party van, spent some time on a large truck. So, a fully-loaded large truck weighs over 80,000 pounds. As a result, the force in a semi-truck collision is so immense that no safety restraint system, however sophisticated, could possibly absorb it. Catastrophic burns are often the worst injuries in these collisions. Diesel fuel burns at a different temperature from ordinary gasoline, making the resulting burns extensive, painful, and difficult to treat.
These injury claims are complex, not just because the injuries are so severe. Generally, an out-of-state shipping or transportation company owned the truck involved in the crash. These companies often immediately hire high-priced lawyers to defend them in court. Because of these complexities, only the most experienced Marietta personal injury lawyer should handle such claims. Inexperienced lawyers have little or no chance of obtaining maximum compensation in these cases.
