Your lawyer will work to understand more about:
- Your prognosis and the extent of your injuries
- How your injuries have affected your ability to work
- How your everyday life and well-being has been impacted since the crash
- The medical bills you face for past, present, and future care
Our Cincinnati attorneys will work to hold the truck driver or trucking company responsible for your damages.

Our Truck Accident Lawyers Will Handle All the Legal Details of Your Case
We have over 60 years of combined experience serving injured people in Ohio. Our team is committed to seeing your case through to the end, regardless of the complexity of your case. We can help you by:
Investigating Your Truck Accident Case
Your lawyer can use the following pieces of information to build your case:
- The police report
- Photos of the accident scene
- Your medical records
- Camera footage
We can also use testimony from accident reconstruction specialists to prove the cause of your collision. These experts use a combination of 3D modeling, computer simulations, and diagrams to prove the causes of accidents. In some cases, we may discover that roadway defects played a part in your crash.
Handling All Communications
You do not need to talk to the other party, their insurer, or their legal counsel. Our team can do all of that for you.
We can take their phone calls, answer their emails, and document all correspondence. By doing this, we can prevent you from being pressured into accepting an unfair settlement offer.
Calculating the Cost of Your Truck Accident Damages
When we negotiate a settlement, we want you to fully understand your legal options, including how much your truck accident settlement is worth. We can review your employment records, bank statements, and medical bills to determine the value of your losses. We can also consult with economists to learn more about your case’s value.
Protecting You Against Bad Faith Insurance Practices
The insurance company may not want to pay what you are owed. They might lowball your claim, deny it for no reason, or pass around your claim from adjuster to adjuster. We can keep the insurance adjuster from taking advantage of you.
Filing Your Lawsuit
Many cases do not end up going to court, as we could seek a fair settlement through negotiations. However, if your case goes to trial, we can help you by:
- Filing your case
- Presenting evidence
- Handling all communications
- Representing you in court appearances
- Managing your case’s deadlines
If the insurance company decides to offer a fair settlement while your case plays out in court, we could explore whether accepting it would be a good option for you.

Ohio’s Statute of Limitations for Filing a Truck Accident Lawsuit
Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10 imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits. This means that you have to file a lawsuit two years after the crash. Certain extenuating circumstances or unique factors in your case might affect this deadline.
A truck accident lawyer from our team can explain your legal options and file your case in Cincinnati before the deadline expires.
You Must File Your Case Before the Statute of Limitations Expires
If you do not file your case on time, the courts could dismiss your case. This could effectively mean that:
- The at-fault party would not be held accountable for their actions
- The insurance company may have less incentive to settle your case
- You would have to pay for some of your injury-related expenses out of pocket

Important Tips to Know After a Truck Accident in Cincinnati
Our attorneys want to keep you fully informed about your legal rights and options throughout your case. Here are two things that Bressman Law wants to share with you:
You Do Not Have to Accept the Insurer’s Offer
If the insurance adjuster offers you a low settlement, you do not have to accept it—regardless of what they tell you. We could continue negotiating or filing a lawsuit against the at-fault party if this happens.
Once you accept an offer, you cannot ask for more money, even if your condition takes a turn for the worse. Our team can help you determine when you should accept a settlement offer.
You Should get Medical Attention Following a Truck Accident
We will need to prove that you were injured due to the truck accident. By seeking medical care allows you to get treatment and evidence showing a direct link between the accident and your injury.
Important medical documentation for your case can include:
- Your imaging scans
- Lab test results
- Treatment details
- Testimony from your doctor
- Details about your prognosis
We can also use other medical records to show the nature of your impairment.
