Ohio Truck Accidents

Strong Advocacy for Ohio Victims of Commercial Truck Accidents

Fighting for drivers, passengers, and bystanders when truck collisions cause serious harm

Commercial transportation is the lifeblood of our economy. Transported goods supply our shelves with the necessities and luxuries of life. All too often, though, commercial trucks wreak havoc on Ohio’s federal, state, and local roads. The pressure to meet deadlines, driver fatigue, improper inspections, and other negligent actions cause drivers to lose control of their vehicle. In turn, this causes catastrophic injuries and even death. According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, in 2014 there were over 125 fatal truck crashes and 4,270 truck crashes that caused injuries in Ohio.

At CPW Law, we house a team of experienced Ohio commercial truck injury lawyers. We bring wrongful death actions and personal injury actions on behalf of families and victims throughout Ohio including Cleveland, Columbus, Chagrin Falls, Chesterfield and Cincinnati. Our many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements include a $5.5 million settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury when her car was broadsided by an 18-wheel truck. We hold truck drivers and truck owners who cause severe injuries deserve accountable when they alter someone’s life.

The reason commercial truck accidents are so dangerous

Commercial trucks, on average, cause much more serious injuries than passenger vehicle accidents because of their increased size, weight, and dimensions. The sheer physics of truck collisions mean anyone in a car, motorcycle, or on the sidewalk is likely to be killed or suffer permanent harm. Many truck drivers operate at high speeds and cause severe injuries and fatalities because they have to get their delivery to a loading dock on time.

It is because trucks are so deadly and so forceful, that commercial trucks are highly regulated. Drivers of semi-rigs, 18 wheelers, and other large trucks are required to have a commercial driver’s license. Truck operators and owners must comply with the rules and regulations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, FMCSA, along with other federal and Ohio transportation laws. Trucks need to be routinely inspected before they can be driven.

Common causes of truck crashes

Truck accidents happen for many reasons, and they are often a result of driver error. Some of the more common causes are:

Our Ohio commercial truck driving accident attorneys investigate police reports, conduct independent investigations, and use traffic-reconstruction experts when needed to prove fault in truck accident cases. We handle head-on collision cases, broadsides, rollovers, multi-vehicle collisions, explosions, and all types of truck accidents

We fight to get vehicle accident victims lost wages, payment for each and every medical bill, pain and suffering compensation, and compensation for disfigurement and other damages.
