bigstock-Overturned-Truck-4188645_preview-300x200.jpegCommercial trucks are the largest vehicles on the road, in some cases weighing 20 to 40 times more than regular passenger vehicles. These enormous vehicles can cause significant damage when they crash into smaller vehicles, even during collisions involving low speeds. Federal crash data shows that 3,500 to 4,000 people are killed in truck accidents each year. Countless others suffer life-altering injuries.

If an accident involves severe injuries, these costs are generally far more expensive. It is important to make the right moves after a car accident to give yourself a better chance of recovering adequate compensation for your injuries. Avoid the following four mistakes after a car accident.

What to Know About Georgia's New Distracted Driving Law

Distracted driving is a major cause of car accidents in our state and across the US. Georgia's new law was passed in remembrance of five Georgia Southern University nursing students who died in a 2015 truck accident. The truck's driver later admitted that he was using a mobile phone before the crash.
