Due to their weight and dimensions, accidents involving trucks result in more serious injuries and more significant damage than car accidents. On top of that, many trucking companies encourage drivers to push their limits, like driving long hours without breaks. A catastrophe is just waiting to happen on the road.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident, then consult with a truck accident lawyer in Ohio to determine the potential damages you may recover, as well as the next best step you should take in your case.

Reasons to Retain a Truck Accident Lawyer in Ohio
We Identify Liable Parties
To say truck accidents are complex would be an understatement. In many cases, truck drivers can be held responsible for actions. However, there are certain circumstances when others like employers may be held accountable. Other potentially negligent parties may include:
- Trucking manufacturers
- Trucking companies
- The business that loaded the truck’s cargo
- The business that repaired or maintained the truck
We Investigate Thoroughly
Count on our firm to perform an exhaustive investigation to confirm all at-fault parties. When we investigate, we:
- Organize necessary paperwork and meeting filing deadlines
- Find and interview witnesses
- Gather and review police, medical, and accident reports
