Have you been in an accident involving a tractor-trailer truck?
Thousands of people each year are killed in truck related collisions, and the Rome Georgia truck accident lawyers are here to help victims involved.
Because of the large size and weight of a tractor-trailer truck, an otherwise low impact accident can result in injury or death to drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles.
Also, truckers must ensure the safety of their trucks. Inspections must be performed on a daily basis. Trucks should travel in the right lane and maintain adequate distance from smaller vehicles to ensure the ability to safely stop.
The Rome Georgia truck accident lawyers at MATSON & MATSON don't get paid until you get paid.
We do not charge a retainer on truck accident cases. We only get paid if we reach a favorable verdict at trial or settle your case.

Why do I need an attorney for truck accidents?
Most truck drivers get paid by the mile and have an incentive to keep driving even when they are tired, which leads to more accidents. Drivers sometimes use stimulants such as amphetamines and other illegal substances to keep them awake. As a result, this puts everyone on the road in more danger of being involved in a trucking accident.
Working with a specialized law firm will therefore ensure that you have a person advocate on your side.
Common types of negligence seen in truck accident cases include:
- Reckless Driving (usually excessive speeding)
- Improperly maintained vehicles (usually mechanical failure)
- Overtiredness of Driver (Both State and Federal regulations impose mandatory rest periods and breaks)
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Overloaded or improperly loaded cargo
