Don’t settle for less. Instead, put your faith in attorney Marsh because vehicle accidents are our specialty.
Our practice focuses on vehicle accidents because when you’ve been injured in a wreck with a semi-truck, 18-wheeler, or large commercial vehicle, you need someone who knows what they are doing. That’s where The Marsh Law Firm Comes in.
As a truck accident lawyer with over 26 years of experience, Troy Marsh is a hard-working trial attorney who can hold the right people accountable.

Truck accidents often result in serious, painful injuries and being forced to deal with large insurance companies.
They’ll have teams of attorneys devoted to limiting what they owe or shifting the blame entirely to you. You may even be pressured to accept a settlement.
Your lawyer should work harder.
Your lawyer will always be Troy Marsh. Even if Mr. Marsh associates another lawyer because of her/his particular skill in a specific area (there is no additional cost to you), Mr. Marsh will still be your lawyer, and you still talk to him.
Your questions get answered. In fact, you can expect a call at least once a week so you can get an update, ask any questions, or express any concerns. Mr. Marsh wants you to rest easy knowing a hard working attorney is looking out for you.
Your lawyer can get results. With over two decades of experience and a history of getting injury victims relief, Mr. Marsh knows what makes for a successful truck accident claim. This means identifying those at fault, making the insurer respond, negotiating for higher awards, and if necessary preparing the strongest possible case for trial.
You get max value for minimal risk. Most injury lawyers take cases on a contingency basis. But, this can lead to settlements for less than what you deserve. Instead, we assess your losses together, including future lost wages, medical treatment, and pain and suffering. If an offer covers everything, Troy will say so. If you can do better, he'll fight for it. If your best option is in court, he’ll be ready.
With I-16, U.S. 301, and Route 67 running through Statesboro, the area sees a good amount of commercial traffic.
But truck accidents can happen almost anywhere. The main cause in a truck vs. car crash is typically negligence, but the Marsh Law Firm can help if your accident resulted from:
Each accident is different, and the results that we’ve achieved for our clients should not be considered an expectation for what we can do for you. We are providing examples of case victories to illustrate that we fight hard for our clients to get meaningful results.

To win a truck accident case, you need to prove that the driver or another party was responsible for the crash and your injuries. To prove fault, you’ll need to show someone owed you a duty of care and neglected it.
Proving that their carelessness caused you harm isn’t always easy, and there may be other parties involved, like the truck driver’s employer or a manufacturer.
There are strict federal and state laws that govern how long truck drivers can work, but employer pressure and lax policies result in a lot of accidents.
Enforced deadlines and quotas may cause drivers to speed, disregard safety guidelines, or overload trucks.
Inadequate training and hiring practices may lead to inexperienced or unqualified drivers on the roads.
Trucking companies sometimes ignore necessary maintenance or use sub-par products to keep a truck hauling.
There may be a recall on the truck’s brakes or another defect that should have been replaced.
Negligence in the trucking industry is a serious issue and several entities may share fault. There are also deep pockets committed to limiting what they owe.
It can feel like an uphill battle. But an in-depth investigation from a lawyer with specific insight and experience handling truck accident claims can provide a clear path. Attorney Marsh will collect the evidence, reconstruct the accident, examine the logbooks and company records, use trucking industry experts, and clearly establish who is financially liable.
The sheer size and weight of an 18-wheeler means that it could do far more damage in a collision than your average car accident. The resulting injuries and the impact on your life can be tremendous, but the most common truck accident injuries are:
A traumatic truck crash can be physically painful, inconvenient, and financially stressful. You may also experience emotional distress, like PTSD, depression, or anxiety. These injuries should not be taken lightly or discounted in your truck accident settlement or verdict.
Some of the losses you can recover financial compensation for include:
We know you’re going through a lot. Whether you were sideswiped by a semi or lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, let us answer your questions.
We will help deal with repairs, get you proper medical care, review your expenses, document how your injuries impacted your life you, and explain what you are legally entitled to. Then we’ll pursue all of it with the urgency your case demands.
An insurance adjuster may contact you soon after the crash offering a quick settlement. Be wary of low-ball offers because they are meant to resolve your case before you can consult a lawyer and they rarely cover all your damages.
However, by working with a lawyer like Troy Marsh, with specific trucking industry experience and record of success in courts across Georgia, they know you are treating your case seriously and so should they. This often ends with them coming to the negotiation table and higher settlement offers.
Choosing to hire an experienced trial lawyer has the added benefit of preparing your claim for court. While most injury claims get resolved with a settlement, filing a truck accident lawsuit protects you from the statute of limitations that may apply and grants you access to otherwise unavailable evidence through the discovery phase.
When large trucking companies are forced to hand over employee, maintenance, and safety records to an attorney who is ready for trial, it strengthens your claim and gives you the advantage.
There is no “average” settlement for a truck accident. However, because of the often severe injuries involved and large insurance policies trucking companies carry, awards can potentially be higher than a normal car accident.
But generally, the financial damages in a truck accident case include past and future medical expenses, any lost wages or diminished earnings, certain out of pocket expenses, and potential compensation for pain and suffering.
Again, the length of time your specific claim takes to resolve depends on various factors, best discussed with your attorney. Insurance companies notoriously pressure victims to accept quick settlements, which means paying out less than you deserve.
Unfortunately, you do not have unlimited time to file your claim. The time in which you have to file is called the statute of limitations and Georgia law allows a truck accident victim two years from the date of the accident to file. When it expires, you will typically be barred from pursuing a lawsuit.
Feel free to ask anything, especially during your free consultation. This can include questions about Mr. Marsh’s experience, the legal process, truck accident laws, settlement procedures, and other issues like how we will approach your case and how it might affect your daily life.
Generally, your truck accident lawyer should:
