Augusta / Richmond County Georgia Trucking Accidents

Augusta, located where I-20 crosses the Savannah River to South Carolina, is a key area for litigation of interstate trucking accident cases in Georgia.

Because so many trucking cases wind up in federal courts, truck wrecks on I-20 in the eastern part of Georgia often find their way to federal court in Augusta. Due to the interesting way Georgia's three federal districts are aligned, Augusta is in the Southern District of Georgia.

Ken Shigley has been admitted to practice in the Southern District of Georgia since 1985, and has litigated cases in federal court in Augusta.

Augusta-Richmond County, is the second most populous city in Georgia.
