An Aggressive Advocate For Victims Of Catastrophic Injuries

In the trucking industry, driver negligence and poor vehicle maintenance have the potential for devastating consequences. Crashes involving large commercial trucks are often permanently life-changing and all too often result in traumatic brain injuries, severed spinal cords, crushed bones, and loss of limbs or eyesight. Death frequently results from these accidents.

That is why the government tightly regulates the trucking industry with extensive state and federal laws. If you or a loved one suffers injuries due to trucking negligence, you may be able to hold the negligent parties responsible for your medical expenses, lost income, rehabilitative equipment, and pain and suffering. At Jody D. Peterman, LLC, we handle only a select number of personal injury claims, so our clients get the focus and personal attention necessary for these types of complex cases.

Fighting For Families In The Aftermath Of Wrongful Death

The unexpected death of a loved one can trigger a full range of trauma and hardship for the grieving family. When someone else’s negligent actions are the cause of your grief and hardship, Georgia’s wrongful death laws provide a way of seeking justice and financial compensation for your losses.

You may file a wrongful death lawsuit up to two years after the death of your family member. There are exceptions that may apply to this time limit. It is best to speak with our experienced wrongful death attorney at Jody D. Peterman, LLC, as soon as you are able.
