Truck accidents: Collision in dense fog leaves 9 with injuries

When traveling in times of inclement weather, drivers must use extreme caution not only to protect themselves, but also for the safety of everyone nearby. For drivers of commercial vehicles, this type of restraint is paramount, as truck accidents can be dangerous under any circumstance. A recent collision that took place under similar circumstances in Georgia has reportedly left nine individuals with injuries.

According to authorities, multiple vehicles were stopped at a nearby traffic light at around 8 a.m. on a recent Monday. While waiting for the light to change, a tanker truck suddenly slammed into the last vehicle in line, which sparked a chain reaction that involved as many as 10 vehicles. Authorities asset that the accident was severe, and that vehicle parts were strung out all over the road.

Nine individuals reported injuries following the incident, one of whom suffered severe harm. Authorities launched an investigation soon thereafter, and report that a dense layer of fog in the area was a contributing factor. Similar weather conditions can cause a significant reduction in visibility, and if a driver fails to adjust accordingly, the result can be devastating.

Individuals who suffer serious injuries in truck accidents at the hands of a negligent driver may wish to pursue restitution, but they might need assistance in the process. When facing a similar situation, a person could consult an attorney for advice on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney in Georgia can evaluate the incident, along with a client's injuries and financial needs, and assist in pursuing the full amount of compensation deserved through a personal injury claim.
