Truck Driver On Drugs Accident Injury Lawsuits

Professional truck drivers can spend ten hours or more behind the wheel, especially those who are long-haul drivers. Reaching their destination and delivering their load is how they earn their living, so driving for as many hours as possible is often the goal. Some truck drivers make the decision to use drugs to keep them alert during these long journeys, which can impact the safety of their driving. When a driver on drugs causes a truck accident, they can be liable for any injuries they cause.

Drug use among truck drivers is not uncommon, but it is against the law. Any drug that impairs the driver’s ability to react or make decisions while driving can put others at risk. Large commercial trucks can cause significant damage to other vehicles and their passengers during a wreck. If the driver was impaired by using any type of narcotic or other drug while behind the wheel, both the driver and the trucking company may be liable for damages caused by an accident.

Trucking Drug-Induced Accidents

Large truck drug-induced accidents and lawsuits can be complex for many reasons. Not only must a personal injury attorney prove the truck driver was on drugs and caused the accident, he may need to determine who is liable. If the driver worked for a trucking company, it must be proven he was “on-the-clock” at the time to hold them liable. Trucking insurance companies will often fight claims of negligence. The lawsuit may involve testimony or deposition from toxicologists to explain how the drug in the driver’s system impacted their performance. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can gather the facts to build a strong case.

If you were injured in a large truck accident and the driver was on drugs, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to seek damages. Our talented personal injury lawyers at Conley Griggs Partin LLP can look at your claim and advise you on your legal options. Just contact one of our offices to schedule a free consultation. You may be able to pursue compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages caused by the truck accident.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
