Common Causes of Truck Accidents in Ohio

While any motor vehicle accident can be devastating, the large size and immense weight of commercial trucks mean they cause immense damage when they collide with smaller passenger vehicles and motorcycles. As a result, truck accidents are far more likely to result in catastrophic injury and death than other types of accidents. This makes these cases complex, as victims require compensation not only for their immediate medical costs but also for the expenses associated with ongoing treatment as well.

Another complicating factor in truck accident claims is the issue of liability. While a truck driver may have caused the accident, his or her trucking company may be liable for the accident because the truck driver was “on the clock” when the collision occurred. Additionally, a third party, such as a manufacturer or another motorist, could be partially or wholly to blame for an accident. It’s important that we look at the causes of the accident in order to determine who is liable.

Some of the most common factors that lead to trucking accidents include:

  • Truck drivers operating in excess of federal hours limits
  • Drivers who are distracted or using a cell phone while driving
  • Operators under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Trucking companies that fail to maintain their vehicles
  • Cargo that is not secured properly or shifts while driving
  • Overloaded trucks carrying excessive cargo
  • Truck drivers behaving negligently (speeding, violating traffic laws, etc.)
  • Defective trucks or truck parts
  • Another motorist on the road acting carelessly or recklessly
  • Defective or faulty road design or construction

As previously mentioned, truck accidents often result in injuries that can take a long time to heal, leaving you in a very difficult position financially. At Ross, Midian & Breitmayer, LLC, we make sure that insurance companies do not try to needlessly delay your case or engage in unfair settlement practices.

Why You Need a Truck Accident Attorney

The insurance companies in your case may make it nearly impossible for you to get the compensation you deserve. Once we understand what has happened in your accident, we can prepare a solid plan to recover compensation from all of the responsible parties.

When these companies refuse to recognize the value of your claim, we are more than ready to take your case to court. We do not shy away from trial, especially when the demands of the case require us to litigate in order to get justice for you and your family. You can trust us to put your needs at the forefront of your case as we seek compensation for you.

Let Our Experienced Attorneys Help You Fight for Fair Compensation

Our Columbus truck accident lawyers have the aggressive approach and hard-earned reputation you need as your case winds through the legal system. From negotiation to litigation, we will protect your best interests along the way.
