When your car breaks down on the side of the road, one of the first calls you make is to a tow truck company. Although tow trucks are irreplaceable for roadside breakdowns, these vehicles can be dangerous with the wrong driver behind the wheel.
If you have been injured in a tow truck crash, Metro Atlanta Law Group wants to help. We will help you seek fair compensation for your injuries and damages. We make sure negligent tow truck drivers are held responsible when they cause injuries.
How Do Tow Truck Crashes Occur?
While not as massive as an eighteen-wheeler, large tow trucks are bulkier than other types of vehicles and take up a lot of space on Georgia roads. Tow trucks are a greater risk to other drivers because of their size and weight.
Unfortunately, tow truck drivers can be negligent just like other drivers on the road. When negligence occurs behind the wheel of a large truck, serious injuries and damages often occur. The following are some of the negligent ways tow truck drivers cause accidents in Atlanta.
Lack of training
Under the influence
Poor weather conditions
If you have been injured, you do not have to continue to suffer alone. We will help you every step of the way and will work to ensure you receive fair compensation. If we do not win your case, you do not owe attorney’s fees!
You May Be Owed Financial Compensation
Because of their size and weight, tow trucks can cause more damage and injuries than other vehicles. Victims of tow truck accidents often face medical bills, lost wages, damaged property, and pain and suffering.

Kinds of Tow Truck Accidents
Multiple types of tow truck accidents occur on Atlanta roads. The following are some of the most common tow truck crash scenarios our clients have faced.
Blindspot accidents can happen to anyone, but larger tow trucks have more blindspot areas than smaller vehicles. Should a tow truck driver fail to check their blindspots regularly, they could end up causing catastrophic accidents.
Rear-end accidents are also a common problem with tow trucks. Rear-end crashes typically occur when a driver is following too closely behind another driver. Aggressive tow truck drivers cause accidents frequently because they are not obeying the rules of the road.
Sideswipe accidents occur often on Atlanta highways, and it is not just tow truck drivers who are to blame. Any driver who does not check their blind spots, give other drivers space, or use their turn signals can end up causing a sideswipe accident.
If you have been involved in a serious accident with a tow truck, it is your right to seek fair compensation. We are here to fight for your rights. While we cannot guarantee any outcome in your case, we will not give up until justice is served.
Do Not Fight the Insurance Company Alone!
Some accident victims do not realize they need a truck accident attorney until it is too late. They trust the insurance company to be fair and soon find out insurance adjusters are only working to protect their employer’s money.
Anything you say to the insurance adjuster can be used against you. They will work to lessen or even eliminate their liability.
Before you talk to the insurance company, talk to us! We offer a free case evaluation to determine the liable parties and the possible value of your claim. Should you decide to hire us, we will immediately start an investigation and negotiations with the insurance company.
We Will Hold the Negligent Parties Responsible
In some types of crashes, multiple parties can be held liable. Aside from the driver, we will help you determine if other parties have been negligent, including the following.
The tow truck company
The truck manufacturer
The truck parts manufacturer
The government municipality responsible for road maintenance
Tow truck companies must maintain their tow trucks and ensure they are safe to operate. Failure to maintain a tow truck can lead to serious injuries and even death.
We will pursue every legal avenue to ensure you are treated fairly and receive the compensation you are owed. If the negligent parties or their insurance company are not being fair, we will pursue a claim in court on your behalf.
