We Take Action Against All Responsible Parties
At Bressman Law, we handle your Cincinnati truck accident claim from beginning to end. It starts with conducting a full investigation into your accident and identifying every party that may have played a role in it. We often discover responsible parties that our clients had not even considered, and we are able to go after them and recover compensation.
The list of parties potentially liable for your injury is unknown, but here are a few we will likely look at first:
The Truck Driver
We will immediately begin investigating the truck driver’s actions leading up to the crash. We will determine if they were:
- Driving recklessly
- Breaking a traffic law
- Intoxicated (either by alcohol or another drug, perhaps a stimulant)
- Violating an industry violation, such as driving too many hours without rest
Our team will turn over every stone in search of the evidence we need to show that the driver was negligent in some way. This gathering of proof will provide us a strong foundation on which to build your claim for damages.
The Trucking Company
We may be able to hold the trucking company vicariously liable for the actions of the driver. The company’s employee was acting in the company’s interest at the time of the accident, so the company should be responsible. Additionally, the company might have encouraged the driver to violate rules (like driving too fast for the amount of cargo carried on the truck) to benefit the bottom line. We will seek proof of such negligence, if it exists.
The Truck Manufacturer
We can pursue the manufacturer for damages if we uncover evidence that the truck was defective in some way and that the design flaw in the vehicle contributed to your accident.

We Help You Get Paid What You Deserve
A Cincinnati truck accident lawyer from our team may help you collect a full and fair settlement that pays you for all your economic and noneconomic losses, which may include:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional anguish
- And more if you qualify
Many of our truck accident clients have:
- Suffered permanent, life-altering injuries
- Missed work for extended periods, with some unable ever to return
- Dealt with crippling, unbearable physical pain
- Incurred medical bills stretching into the tens of thousands of dollars and higher
David Bressman and his team at Bressman Law believe that the persons responsible for your truck accident injuries (along with their insurance companies) should foot the bill for the damages you have incurred—that goes for economic and noneconomic losses. Just because you cannot quantify a certain loss—such as the loss of ability to pursue a beloved hobby—in dollar terms does not mean those responsible for your injury should not compensate you for it.
The Statute of Limitations May Limit Your Time to Take Action
Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10 imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury (including truck accident) lawsuits. Certain extenuating circumstances or unique factors in your case might affect this deadline, so speak with a lawyer rather than assuming you have until a certain date to file. A Cincinnati truck accident lawyer from Bressman Law can take quick legal action—if necessary—to keep your case active.
