There are many situations that could arise on the roadway that a driver may not have been expecting. Another driver could perform an unexpected action, or a vehicle or one of its parts could malfunction. If a truck experiences an issue while traveling, an accident could possibly take place. A truck accident could then lead to injuries and a possible legal situation for those individuals involved.
Interstate traffic can at times be difficult to maneuver. Vehicles and drivers can also have a hard time merging back into the flow of traffic if they have had to stop for some reason. If a truck driver does not ensure that a lane is clear before attempting to get back on the roadway, a semi truck accident could occur. In turn, if serious injuries or a fatality results from such an accident, a legal situation could also arise.
Many people know that motorcycle accidents often have tragic outcomes due to the limited protections that motorcyclists have.

In the opinion of many parents of United States soldiers, there is no higher calling. One such mother is no exception when talking of her 26-year-old son, who was a victim of a truck accident last summer in Georgia. She recently offered testimony and met with the state's attorney in two cases concerning his untimely death.
For a motorcycle rider, the roadways are an especially dangerous place. In many cases this is due to the lack of awareness that motorists have when it comes to recognizing and respecting a motorcyclist place on Georgia roads.
