Drunk Driving Truck Accidents
Call Our Aggressive Marietta Truck Accident Attorneys Now
There are many differences between the average civilian driver and a commercial
truck driver operating a big rig, but there's at least one thing they
have in common: it is extremely reckless-- and illegal-- to be on the
road while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have injured
by a commercial truck driver who was drunk behind the wheel, we invite
you to contact our firm today.
Jones & Swanson, our dedicated and respected
Marietta truck accident lawyers have recovered tens of millions of dollars for clients who have been hurt
or wronged by the negligence of others. In the case of drunk driving truck
accidents, that negligence demonstrates a clear disregard for public safety
that deserves to be recognized before the law.
Big truck drivers are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
These laws dictate how long a driver can drive before they need to rest.
Several drivers and their companies violate these rules so they can make
more money. This leads to sleepy, fatigued drivers that make mistakes
which lead to bad accidents and injured people.
Let our experienced attorneys get you the compensation you deserve.

Dangerous Commercial Big Rig Drivers
It's well known that the consumption of alcohol can impair a driver's
ability to be safe on the road. This is especially true for commercial
truck drivers who must be specially trained to operate tremendously large
and heavy trucks and rigs safely beside other consumer vehicles.
A driver under the influence of alcohol can experience:
- Drowsiness & fatigue
- Impaired focus
- Reduced reaction times
- Impaired vision
Additionally, some truck drivers turn to substance and/or prescription
drug abuse to endure long hours and fight fatigue. These substances and
alcohol can lead to impaired decision-making and an inhibited performance
behind the wheel.
If a drunk or impaired driver was responsible for the commercial truck
accident that hurt you or your loved one, we invite you to contact Jones
& Swanson today. We know what it takes to develop a compelling case
on your behalf and ensure that maximum relief is diligently pursued.
