The number of accidents involving large trucks, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles has risen since 1992. Unfortunately, not a lot has been done to improve trucking safety regulations or to enforce regulations already on the books.
At the Sandel Law Firm in Akron, Ohio, we are here to hold truck drivers, their employers and their insurance companies accountable when they injure innocent people on Ohio roads. Call 330-666-2889 (ATTY) to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer. We also represent families in cases of fatal truck accidents.
When you hire the Sandel Law Firm to represent you in a truck accident case, I will take immediate steps to collect and preserve evidence of negligence on the part of the truck driver and his or her employer. While trucking companies are required to carry substantial insurance policies, they will do everything they can to avoid responsibility for your injuries. The insurance company will often send investigators to the accident scene within hours, looking for ways to blame the accident on you. To protect your right to full compensation, you need an attorney on your side.
Truck accidents are often caused by deliberate violations of truck safety regulations, such as:
- Driving an overweight truck, which cannot stop in time to avoid an accident
- Truck driver fatigue caused by driving too long without taking a required rest break
- Hiring an unqualified or unsafe truck driver
- Driving a truck that is poorly maintained or with defective safety equipment
When a truck driver or trucking company fails to follow safety rules and that leads to an accident with a car, the people in the smaller vehicle pay the price. In accidents involving big rigs, 86 percent of fatalities and 77 percent of injuries involve individuals in smaller vehicles.
