Our nation's economy relies on the ability of producers of goods to ship their wares across the nation, including right here in Georgia. Many companies utilize semitrailer trucks to transport their products. Driving a semi can be financially rewarding, and sometimes drivers are incentivized to make as many deliveries as possible, as quickly as possible. However, to do so some truckers may try to drive for long hours, even if they are fatigued. This can result in truck accidents caused by drowsy driving.
When someone dies due to the negligence of another party, the victim's loved ones are left with the grief and anger in knowing that the death could have been avoided. They may also suffer significant financial damages due to the loss of their loved one.
