Georgia Accidents Caused by Inadequate Truck Driver Training
Protecting You From Negligent Semi Drivers in Georgia
When the inadequate training of a truck driver results in a serious accident, both the driver and the trucking company should be held responsible. At Ayerbe & Arnold, LLC, that is exactly what we will do. Since 1992, we have obtained more than $25 million in recoveries for our clients who were wrongfully hurt on Georgia roadways.
CASE SPOTLIGHT: Ayerbe & Arnold, LLC, obtained a record recovery for a injured mother when a truck driver who had been improperly trained slammed into the back of her car on I-16 near Dublin Georgia. A truck driver claimed that our client’s vehicle was traveling too slowly on the highway and that the slow speed caused the wreck.
Paul Ayerbe was able to prove that the truck driver was improperly trained in his scanning or looking technique that all truckers use. During the video deposition of the truck driver, Paul Ayerbe asked the driver to show him the scan by placing his hands on an imaginary steering wheel and performing the procedure. The truck driver looked away from the front of the imaginary vehicle for over 30 seconds mimicking his scan of his mirrors, instruments and side windows. The demonstration showed that the trucker had been improperly trained in his scan technique to look away a dangerously long time. The trucking company faced with this damaging evidence resolved the case for 4.18 million dollars. It is believed that the trucking companies training relating to scans has been changed as well.
