Causes of Log Truck Accidents

Logging companies harvest pine trees by cutting the tree very near the bottom. Those trees are then loaded onto trailers as large logs stacked very high. Those stacks of logs are then pulled by semi-trucks to the mill for processing.

Log truck drivers get paid by the load; therefore, they take as many logs as they think possible on their loads. Trees are extremely heavy. A small accident involving a logging truck can result in major damages and serious injuries.

Like any tractor trailer truck crash, log trucks are much larger than the passenger vehicles and trucks on the road. That size difference can cause catastrophic injuries or even wrongful death to the logging truck driver and drivers of passenger cars. A Georgia logging truck accident lawyer will make sure you have access to good medical care so you can focus on getting on the road to recovery.
