Macon Trucking Accident Lawyers
Experienced, Resourceful & Committed
Because of the drastic difference in size and weight between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, truck accidents can cause horrifying and often fatal injuries to others on the road. Big rigs, tractor-trailers, tankers, and 18-wheelers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and measure more than 50 feet in length. Pit one of these behemoths in motion against the average car weighing 3,000 pounds and disaster can result.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident, you need a law firm that understands federal trucking regulations and all the other factors that need to be investigated. At Childers & McCain, we have the resources and knowledge needed to back up your injury claim against large corporations and powerful insurance companies.

Trucking Accidents in Georgia
Truckers and trucking companies are subject to federal regulations that govern how and when they can operate. Violations of these regulations are often a major factor in truck accidents.
Truck accidents are often caused by:
- Truck driver fatigue due to violating rules regarding hours or days spent behind the wheel
- Improper truck maintenance
- Improper loading of cargo
- Poorly trained or unqualified truck drivers
- Defective truck parts or components
- Moving violations by the driver
- Driver error
- Trucker under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Our firm can investigate the scene of the accident to properly preserve evidence and work closely with accident reconstructionists, examine medical testimony and records, and investigate other resources to build your case against the trucking company and/or its insurance company.
