Whether they are called semis, tractor-trailers, or 18-wheelers, large commercial trucks are responsible for a disproportionate number of the injuries and deaths on highways in Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky, and across the southeastern United States.
When these accidents are caused by truck driver or trucking company negligence, the law office of Westmoreland Patterson Moseley & Hinson L.L.P. has the experience and resources needed to thoroughly investigate the truck accident, establish liability, and pursue the maximum compensation to which our clients are entitled.

Act Quickly After a Truck Accident
A trucking company finds out about an accident immediately after it happens because of the truck's GPS system. The trucking company's insurance company will usually send an investigator to the scene within 24 hours.
While consulting a lawyer is often the last thing on the minds of victims and their families, it is critical to hire a lawyer as soon as possible so that they have a representative at the scene in order to ensure that evidence of liability can be preserved. Our truck accident lawyers retain the best possible experts in the trucking industry to provide us with advice regarding the cause of the truck accident as well as who is liable for the truck accident, including the potential liability of the truck driver, truck owner, trucking company, and insurance company.
