Car and Truck Accident


Car and truck accidents occur daily. Some may result in minor injuries while others can result in catastrophic injuries and death. All drivers have a legal duty to obey the “rules of the road.” Georgia law requires drivers to follow the posted speed limit, stop for stop signs, obey traffic signals, not follow other cars too closely, and many more obligations. Commercial vehicle drivers including tractor trailer drivers owe additional duties to other motorists.

All vehicles operating in Georgia are required to have minimum insurance coverage, but that amount can vary depending on whether someone is a non-commercial driver or a commercial driver. In addition to the at fault driver’s insurance, there may be additional insurance coverage available for your claim such as underinsured or uninsured coverage as well as medpay benefits. You need an attorney skilled in car and truck wreck cases to identify all of the applicable insurance coverage.

In addition to insurance coverage, you need to seek skilled legal advice to identify all of the parties who may be liable for the injuries or death suffered in a car or truck wreck. There may be instances when a party other than the driver is responsible. For example, an owner of a vehicle may be responsible for damages even if he or she was not driving under certain circumstances if they gave permission for another person to drive the vehicle. A company may be responsible for damages if its employee is operating a vehicle and causes a wreck. In tractor trailer wrecks, there may be a host of responsible parties including the driver, companies that owned or leased the vehicle, and insurance companies.

I was involved in an accident and Zach handled my case. Zach was honest and kept me up to date on everything. During this experience my husband passed away and I was so thankful to have Zach handling everything. He cared and was so supportive. When you are going thru situations like this you need someone you trust and gives his all to your case.

Mr. Zach Thomas represented me multiple times in business and personally. Not only was his professionalism unrivaled, he successfully handled multiple lawsuits successfully and not only met my expectation , but exceeded them exponentially. I highly recommend his services and having him represent you or your company.

I was involved in a head-on car collision in November 2019. Zach was referred to me by another attorney I have great trust in and respect for. He was everything I needed during such a trying time. I could tell that Zach honestly cared about what was happening to me and he was there every step of the way making sure I was taken care of.I believe he got me the best financial settlement possible and was fair and honest with his expenses.I would defiantly use Zach again and refer him to others, though I really hope I never have to.
