Within the United States, there are 48 different states that allow drivers as young as 18-years-old to operate commercial motor vehicles like big rigs and tractor trailers. While states take on the risk of allowing young drivers with CDLs to drive big trucks, the federal government does not currently permit people this young to cross state lines. The minimum age for drivers to be allowed to operate tractor trailers across state borders is 21. This minimum age limit means the federal government is able to prevent young teenagers from becoming long-haul truckers crisscrossing the roads of America. truck 2

Soon, however, truck accident risks could increase significantly nationwide as the federal government is considering lowering the age limit in response to truck driver shortages. If teens are given the ability to drive big trucks across the borders of states, it is likely there will be many more big rigs driven on interstate highways in Georgia and throughout the rest of the country. This, in turn, could result in more truck crashes.

Teen drivers are held to the same standard as older motorists when it comes to vehicle operation. If you are injured in an Atlanta truck accident by a teen driver or by any negligent trucker, call a Georgia truck accident lawyer for help understanding how you can recover monetary compensation for losses.

Atlanta Truck Accident Risks Could Rise Due to Teen Truckers

Bloomberg indicates the U.S. Trucking Industry has been aggressively pushing the federal government to lower the age limit for truckers operating across state lines. Congress is seriously considering making this shift and modifying the current federal rules requiring interstate truckers to be at least 21. Safety advocates, however, are extremely concerned that putting teens behind the wheels of vehicles weighing as much as 80,000 pounds is going to make the roads a much more dangerous place to be.

Data seems to support the position of safety advocates that lowering the age limit for interstate truck driving is a very bad idea. In states where people under age 21 are allowed to have CDLs and drive commercial trucks, these young drivers are anywhere from four to six times as likely to get into deadly truck accidents when compared with drivers who are 21.  Young teens at age 18, 19, and 20 have limited driving experience in general (which is why graduated licensing laws exist for teens who first get their licenses) and entrusting teens with big rigs puts a tremendous amount of responsibility on them.

In 2002, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety responded to a similar proposal to allow teens to drive trucks. That proposal actually would have imposed more limits on teen truck drivers than the current rule change under consideration, but IIHS still warned that there was: “unequivocal scientific evidence of a markedly elevated crash risk among people younger than 21 who drive trucks.”   Those who are victims of crashes caused by these teen drivers need to make sure they speak with an Atlanta truck accident lawyer who can help them to get compensated for losses.

In Georgia, failure to stop after causing a collision is a crime. This offense is a serious one if a driver does not stop for an accident that causes injury or death.  Victims hurt by a hit-and-run driver face the serious potential for uncompensated losses. If you are hurt in a crash with a driver who leaves the accident scene, you need to understand what your options are. car accident

An Atlanta car accident lawyer will provide you with assistance and advice on what to do after a hit-and-run happens.  Give us a call to learn about the different alternatives to consider for seeking compensation when you are hurt by a driver who does not stay at the scene of the car crash.

Options After an Atlanta Hit-and-Run Accident

In most Atlanta car accidents, victims hurt by another driver can pursue a claim for compensation. Georgia law requires drivers to have $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident in liability coverage, which pays for losses a negligent motorist causes to other drivers. A crash victim can negotiate a settlement with the insurer representing the driver who caused a crash, or can pursue a legal claim in court. When a hit-and-run happens, however, the collision victim does not have the contact info or insurance information for the driver who is supposed to pay.

Victims of Atlanta hit-and-run accidents should contact a police officer right away as soon as practicable after the collision.  The police can conduct an investigation to try to find the driver who fled the scene. Social media has helped to make it easier for hit-and-run drivers to be identified because police can post requests for information not just on TV but also on Twitter, Facebook, and online news websites. If a driver who hit-and-ran is identified, victims can pursue a case against him.

Many hit-and-run drivers have insufficient insurance or no coverage at all (not having insurance is a leading reason for drivers to leave a crash scene). If you get hit by a driver without insurance, you can try to sue him anyway. You may win, but unless the driver has money or assets, you are going to have a hard time actually enforcing the judgment and getting the driver to pay. It is possible to have a lien placed on the motorist’s property to enforce a judgment, or even to get his wages garnished- but this only works for defendants with assets and income.

In situations where a hit-and-run driver doesn’t have money or insurance coverage or when a driver who caused your crash is never found, you may want to explore other options. Uninsured motorist coverage is a type of insurance you can buy, which will pay for the losses that another driver should pay for but can’t because of a lack of insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage isn’t required in Georgia, but if you have bought it then your insurer will stand in for the hit-and-run driver and cover your losses.  You’ll need to negotiate a fair payout with the insurer, and an Atlanta car accident lawyer can help.

Speeding unquestionably makes the roads less safe for motorists, bicycle riders, pedestrians, and everyone else on the road. Speeding is a factor in approximately a third of all fatal traffic collisions. A car going faster is going to take a much longer period of time to slow or stop, and a crash with a speeding vehicle is going to generate more force and momentum for the body to absorb. This helps to explain why car crashes are both more likely to be occur and more likely to be serious in cases where a driver is speeding. speeding-past-497358-m

A speeding driver should be held accountable for the losses and damages he causes. An Atlanta speeding car accident lawyer can provide assistance to victims in pursuing a case for compensation when they are hurt by someone who is going too fast.  Unfortunately, noting can undo the damage once it is done. Auto Blog suggests that there may be one important option that is effective in stopping accidents before they happen by encouraging people to slow down: speed cameras.

Speed Cameras Could Reduce Speeding Accidents in Atlanta

Speed cameras are used to detect how quickly a motorist is going. Automated speed cameras can determine when the speed limit is being exceeded and a driver can be issued a ticket. The number of speed cameras is increasing nationwide. There were 115 speed camera programs in 2012 and in 2013, there were 140 speed camera programs nationwide. The increase in the use of automated speed cameras has occurred at the same time that municipalities have been turning away from the use of red light cameras amid questions about red light camera effectiveness and questions about whether red light cameras are constitutional.

Speed cameras seem to be better received, and research has suggested that they may be more effective at stopping serious crashes than other automated traffic enforcement.  Researchers from Insurance Institute for Highway Safety studied a speed camera program that was in place in one county in Virginia and discovered a 19.4 percent reduction in the risk of a crash causing incapacitating injuries or fatalities. If this same report holds true nationwide, as many as 21,000 deadly or serious car accident injuries could be prevented every single year.

Speed cameras can force motorists to go the speed limit or to be cited for a traffic violation. Law enforcement officers already attempt to do this by issuing tickets when they see people speeding, but police cannot be everywhere. Drivers go too fast and take the chance they won’t get into a speeding ticket or cause a collision, but too many of these speeding motorists end up hurting themselves or others.

Whether cameras are present or not, drivers should not be exceeding posted speed limits or going faster than it is safe for them to do. A driver who goes too fast can be presumed negligent since he is violating road safety laws designed to prevent crashes by limiting his speed. A presumption of negligence can make it easier for crash victims to get the compensation they deserve when Atlanta speeding accidents happen.

Since 2009, pedestrian deaths nationwide have gone up 15 percent. In 2013, one pedestrian was killed every two hours for a total of 4,735 pedestrian fatalities over the course of the year. The majority of pedestrian crash victims were men (70 percent of those killed were male), and most victims were middle aged, with an average age of 46. pedestrian

In light of rising fatalities, the Governors Highway Safety Administration announced that a comprehensive new report was created to provide states with 21 different actions they could take to help make the roads safer for walkers. It is unclear what action, if any, Georgia will take to try to improve road conditions.

Ultimately, drivers will largely remain responsible for their own decisions and should be sure to drive carefully so they do not put motorists at risk.  If a pedestrian accident occurs and causes injuries or leads to a fatality, an Atlanta pedestrian accident lawyer can provide representation to victims or surviving family members.

How to Prevent Atlanta Pedestrian Accidents

The new reported cited by GHSA was prepared by a traffic safety expert and was guided by a panel of researchers, safety advocates, and state and federal officials.  GHSA indicates that a key finding in the report suggested: “communities should be allowed to reduce speed limits or establish slow speed zones in areas with a history of pedestrian-motor vehicle crashes as well as in neighborhoods with schools, parks, day care, and senior centers.”

Cities including Seattle, Portland, and New York have implemented this type of slow speed zone in many different areas and, as a result, lives have been saved.  Atlanta could consider slow zones in its high-risk areas to help stop drivers from hitting and killing pedestrians.

The report also listed many other policies that states should consider implementing to provide broader protection to pedestrians. These include:

  • Vulnerable user laws: These laws create a new offense that is more severe than a traffic citation but less severe than a vehicular manslaughter or negligent homicide offense. A license is suspended, community service required, a larger fine is imposed, and community service and/or driver training are mandated when drivers injure or kill vulnerable road users (pedestrians are defined as vulnerable users).  These laws typically require motorists to give pedestrians a buffer up to three feet and to slow down when approaching or passing a pedestrian. Ten states already have vulnerable user laws, but Georgia is not one of them.
  • Complete streets plans: Complete streets plans focus not just on cars when designing roads, but also on all road users including pedestrians. By considering the needs of all road users when creating construction and road expansion or development plans, roads are safer for pedestrians from the start.
  • Better education and enforcement. Police officers need to be better educated about what the rules are, the importance of enforcement, and how to engage with violators. Drivers need to be aware of the rules and understand that they will be enforced.

These are just a few of the myriad recommendations made to improve the safety of the road for all users and to cut down on deadly pedestrian accidents. An attorney with experience in accident cases can provide assistance in situations where drivers do not follow any road safety rules or are negligent in a manner resulting in a pedestrian collision.

In 2010, 13 percent of the U.S. population was 65 or older. Declining birth rates and the aging of the baby boomers, however, mean that a major demographic shift is coming. By 2030, more than 20 percent of the population in the United States is going to be 65 and up. The increase in the percentage of the senior population is a concern to road safety experts, as the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has reported a higher rate of collisions among drivers aged 70 and up compared with drivers who are middle-aged. grandmother-646364-m

Seniors who cause motor vehicle accidents must be held accountable just as younger drivers are. If an elderly motorist makes an unsafe or careless mistake or violates the rules of the road, collision victims should speak with a car accident lawyer in Atlanta about their options for holding the senior driver accountable for crash damages. Before it gets to the point where a senior causes an accident, however, it is beneficial for the senior and his or her family members to make an informed choice about when a senior is no longer safe to drive.

When Do Seniors Present an Unacceptable Atlanta Crash Risk?

Determining when a senior presents an unacceptable risk behind the wheel can be difficult. Boston.com reports that it is very important a senior not stop driving too soon. The AAA Foundation has conducted a study determining the impact of driving cessation on health outcomes for seniors. The study found there is a strong correlation between the loss of driving privileges and deteriorating mental and physical health.

Seniors who are no longer able to drive show higher rates of depression than people of the same age who still are able to get behind the wheel. Former drivers also participate less frequently in outdoor activities, have lower productivity rates, experience a major drop in social activity, and have a reduction in cognitive abilities compared with people in the same age group who still operate vehicles. Admission to a long-term care facility is also much more likely once a senior has stopped driving, with seniors who no longer operate a vehicle as much as five-times more likely to be admitted to a long-term care facility.

The AAA study does not prove that the decision to stop driving is the cause of the decline in seniors. However, it does suggest there is a strong correlation between giving up driving and adverse health effects. If this correlation is seen in other studies, it could suggest seniors should try to maintain the ability to drive as long as possible.

At the same time, the health of one senior does not take precedence over every other motorist on the road. When a senior has physical or mental issues affecting the ability to operate a car safely, the senior, his family members, or his doctor should insist that the elderly individual no longer continue to operate a car.

Truck driver shortages are increasingly a concern when it comes to keeping truck companies staffed. Just this past May, Fortune reported a shortage of qualified truck drivers could have an adverse impact on inland shipping costs, as there are between 35,000 and 40,000 too few qualified truck drivers to meet demand within the United States. Forbes referred to the shortage as a “slow-rolling crisis.” truck-1192536-m

Amidst the shortages, trucking companies may find themselves forced to hire drivers with less experience than they might otherwise prefer. Trucking companies, however, remain responsible for ensuring the truck operators they hire are qualified and able to keep motorists safe by operating vehicles in a responsible manner.

If companies hire unqualified truck operators and those truckers cause accidents, the trucking company can be held responsible both for its negligence in hiring and for the careless actions of on-duty workers. An Atlanta truck accident lawyer can provide assistance in situations where a truck driver or trucking company should be held responsible for crash losses.

Trucking Companies Need to Ensure Drivers are Skilled

Truck drivers are obligated to have a Commercial Driver’s License, which is one way of ensuring they have a basic minimum level of skill to operate a truck without causing injury. The problem, however, is a CDL is not necessarily sufficient proof the trucker knows how to be safe on the road.

CCJ Journal recently reported there was a fraud ring ongoing in five different Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) testing offices throughout the New York City area. Applicant seeking a commercial driver’s license paid between $1,800 and $2,500 in return for being provided with answers to the DMV’s CDL exam. The fee also covered an “escort” service through the CDL testing process. The scheme was a high-tech one. Blue-tooth headsets were used as a communications device, and pencils were used that had been encoded with miniature answer keys to the tests. An external test-taker was also employed to complete the exams for the CDL applicants.

Five people were found guilty in connection with the CDL testing ring after surveillance operations including remote cameras revealed the collusion to help the CDL applicants successfully pass their tests. Possible sentences for participation in the scheme could include as long as 20 years imprisonment.

The Department of Homeland Security, as well as state authorities from the Attorney General’s Office and the Office of Inspector General were all involved in bringing down the fraud ring because of the serious nature of the crimes. When unqualified drivers are given commercial licenses, these individuals can go on to operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of as high as 80,000 pounds. Without the knowledge necessary to safely operate these vehicles, the crash risk is significantly increased.

Trucking companies should not trust a CDL alone to be proof of competence when it comes to preventing truck crashes. Companies have an obligation to ensure drivers have reasonable skills behind the wheel, and the companies can be held accountable when drivers turn out to be unqualified and dangerous.

A recent study published by FSU shows there are attentional costs simply for receiving notification of a text message or an incoming telephone call, even when you do not take the call. When a phone vibrates or a quiet sound goes off, this can impair your focus on the road and have a significant adverse impact on driving safety. v3-white-1544058

The new study is troubling, because so many people drive with their phones even despite knowing the risks.  When a motor vehicle accident occurs because a driver has become distracted by a cell phone, an Atlanta car accident lawyer should be consulted for assistance in pursing a claim for injury compensation.

Kids Model the Behavior of Parents When It Comes to Atlanta Distracted Driving Crashes

According to the FSU study, even hearing a cell-phone notification can significantly damage performance on tasks because the notification can prompt mind-wandering and take focus off the task at hand. The risk of hearing a notification may be just as much of a distraction as actually using the cell phone to call or send text messages.  Young people are especially likely to keep their phones on and notifications enabled while driving, which puts teens at significant risk.

Teens are bombarded with information on the dangers of distracted driving, including a recent shocking ad from AT&T’s It Can Wait campaign.  ABC News reported the ad showed a mother in a vehicle with a baby in the back seat. The mother checks her phone while her child is in the back seat, her car clips a truck traveling in the opposite direction, and the car goes flying up into the air. The ad is designed to show teens and other motorists that it takes only a second for a tragedy to occur.

Despite knowing the dangers, however, kids are often influenced by something far closer to home when it comes to texting: the actions of their parents in the car. The mother in this AT&T ad is modeling a high-risk behavior for her child and the Washington Post reported that evidence shows kids are paying attention. According to the Post, the majority of teens say their parents or other adults text all the time, and the same number of teens who said they saw their parents texting admit that they also send and receive messages behind the wheel.

Claims Journal also indicates teens reply to texts from their parents because their parents expect a prompt response. More than 19 percent of teenagers say their parents expect a reply to a text within one minute, which prompts those teens to pick up the phone even if they are operating a vehicle at the time.

When teens know their parents expect a reply, hearing a cell phone notification can make them nervous and draw their attention from the road- exactly as the FSU study warns.  These teens are a danger to themselves and to others on the road, even if they don’t pick up the phone in response to the text. Victims injured by a texting teen need to understand their options for pursuing a claim for compensation.

After a motor vehicle collision, the insurer for the driver who caused the crash should be responsible for making crash victims whole. This means paying for property damage caused by the collision as well as paying for economic and non-financial damages the accident has caused.  Unfortunately, many insurance companies are reluctant to pay what is due.  This is true not just for big claims, but even when relatively small amounts of money are at stake. money-man-1-590974-m

Getting the money you need is important so you can get a new car, repair your vehicle, and respond appropriately to treat all injuries and losses. The more serious your injuries and the more extensive your damages, the more important it is for you to have an Atlanta car accident attorney to help you stand up to the insurance companies and fight for what you are due.

Car Insurers May Fight to Avoid Paying Out Fair Value of Atlanta Car Crash Claims

One recent case reported on the SC Times shows just how far insurance companies may be willing to go to avoid paying out even small amounts of money they clearly owe.  The case arose when a young man was involved in an automobile accident while driving his family’s Buick. The Buick had 147,000 miles on it, and was worth between $3,500 and $5,000 based on the value of comparable cars.  The young man was struck in the Buick by a driver in a rental car from National Car Rental.  Records show the driver of the National Car Rental vehicle was at fault for the accident. This made the insurer for National Car Rental responsible for covering losses caused to the young man.

The Buick had only collision coverage on it, so the insurance company providing coverage for the Buick did not provide any assistance to the family in making their claim against the rental car’s insurance company. The mother of the young man driving the vehicle began representing her family and her son’s interests.  She made repeated telephone calls to find out what was going on before learning an appraiser had valued the car very low. Even though the family had paid $1,200 just to store the vehicle and to tow it back home, the insurance company offered a total settlement amount of just $1,300.

The mother showed the insurer proof of the value of the car and disputed the insurer’s claims that the vehicle mileage could not be checked because the car could not be turned on. The insurer was very slow to move the case forward, did not provide reasonable information to the mother, and made multiple low offers that were not even reasonably close to covering damages.

Even when the mother complained to the Insurance Commissioner, the insurance company refused to budge. The insurance company told the Commissioner they would not pay more and said that when the family did without collision coverage, they took a chance of having no carrier to help them mitigate losses.  Of course, this is not how it works- the insurance company should have been responsible for the losses their insured caused.

Ultimately, after more than a year of fighting and after producing a stack of paperwork more than four inches thick, the mother succeeded in getting a settlement from the insurer of $3,522.

The lengths the insurance company went to in order to avoid paying out just $2,222 show just how reluctant insurance companies are to pay. When you have suffered greater losses, it is even more essential to have an advocate helping you to fight to get what you deserve.

Construction picks up in Atlanta during the summer months, which means more construction workers on the roads and more detours or closed lanes.  Construction sites can be dangerous, and construction workers are not the only ones at risk. Drivers who do not know how to react to merging lanes or who are distracted by the construction may be a risk to other motorists on the road. Construction can also lead to road closures causing detours for trucks and other vehicles and increasing the chances of a crash happening on unfamiliar roads. working-701884-m

Because construction sites can be dangerous places, it is imperative drivers slow down to get through the construction zone safely. A driver who disobeys a slower speed limit set in a construction site could be subject to a large traffic ticket fine.  If a driver is disobeying the construction zone limit or is otherwise negligent, his carelessness in the construction area could be justification for a personal injury claim brought by injured workers or other victims involved in a collision.  An Atlanta car accident lawyer at Sammons & Carpenter, P.C. can provide legal assistance to victims involved in construction accident cases.

Roadway Work Zones are Dangerous for Motorists and Workers

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published a comprehensive report about the dangers of work zones for motorists and for construction workers.   The CDC has included data dating back to 1994 to show trends in construction zone accidents over time:

  • From 1994 to 1999, there were 778 motorist fatalities in construction and maintenance work zones.
  • From 2000 to 2006, there were 1060 fatalities in construction and maintenance work zones.
  • From 2007 to 2012, there were 669 fatalities in construction and maintenance work zones.

The highest number of people injured in construction and maintenance work zones occurred in 2003, when there were 1,095 people killed in construction areas on the road.  The lowest number of deaths, 609, occurred in 2012.

The CDC also has data on people killed while working on construction sites, in addition to the information on motorists affected by construction accidents. In total between 2003 and 2007, there were 639 worker deaths while workers were on roadside construction zones. This accounts for 7.9 percent of all construction-industry deaths.

From 2003 to 2010, 962 workers were killed on a road construction zone. Hundreds continue to be killed each year. In 2013 alone there were 105 worker deaths in construction areas.  Georgia was one of the top 10 states for worker deaths in construction areas on the road, with only Texas, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, California and Tennessee having a higher number of worker fatalities.

Georgia drivers need to be aware they are endangering construction workers, themselves, and other motorists. When driving through a construction area in Atlanta this summer, be certain you obey all rules for merging lanes or staying out of work zones. You should also ensure you slow down to a safe speed, following the posted guidelines until you have left the work zone entirely.

Summer is road trip season for Atlanta drivers. CBS reports an estimated 38 percent of travelers taking a road trip bring their pets with them on the vacation. While it may be fun to take your furry friends with you, however, your pets can present a signifiant risk behind the wheel. The problem is, drivers tend to become distracted by pets in the car. This distraction can be just as dangerous as using a smart phone or electronic devices. anniegirl

A driver who is paying attention to a pet and not the road can become responsible for any resulting motor vehicle accident that occurs due to his negligence. An Atlanta distracted driving accident lawyer can provide legal assistance to victims injured by a motorist who has a pet with him and who is focused on the animal instead of on road safety.

The Risks of Pets in Atlanta Distracted Driving Accidents

A recent AAA survey found 13 percent of pet owners admit they are distracted by their pets when in a car. Of drivers who take their pets with them, 42 percent said they pet their animals while driving. This is the most common distraction for pet owners. Twelve percent of drivers indicate they have taken a picture of their pet at the same time as they were driving the car and 17 percent of people with pets in the vehicle with them said they have given their animals water or food at the same time as they were driving.

Another survey reported on by Daily Light found an even higher percentage of drivers admitting their pets are a problem when it comes to paying attention in the road. In this survey, 29 percent of respondents said they were distracted by their pet. Drivers reported doing things like putting their dogs in their laps, giving them treats, and petting them.

Taking a pet along on a road trip is not just dangerous for other motorists who may be put at risk by a distracted driver. The pet and the people in the car with it can also be at significant risk. Although almost 40 percent of pet owners bring their animals along on road trips, more than 37 percent said they have never restrained a pet in the car.

A dog that weighs just 10 pounds who is unrestrained in the car will emit 300 pounds of force if the animal flies through the air in a crash. An 80-pound dog can exert up to 2,400 pounds of force if unrestrained. Dogs and cats can become badly hurt if involved in an accident, and can cause serious injury to others in the car.

Pet owners need to ensure they are making the responsible choice. If you bring a dog, cat, or other animal with you, make sure your pet is properly restrained and not a distraction. Everyone, including your animal companion and other motorists on the road, will be a lot safer with these simple precautions.
