Calhoun / Gordon County Georgia Trucking Accidents
Calhoun and Gordon County are midway between Atlanta and Chattanooga. One of the main centers of the carpet industry and the poultry industry in America, Gordon County has a great deal of truck traffic. Much of the interstate trucking -- tractor trailer, big rig, semi truck and straight truck -- in this community is involved in shipping carpet across the nation and around the world. In addition, all interstate trucking traffic between the Midwest and Florida passes through Calhoun on I-75. Accidents involving catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death in Gordon County naturally result.
