Through extensive research, the Department of Public Safety in Ohio has found that more than half of the incidents of truck accidents were caused by truck drivers. Truck accidents as well as semi-truck accidents cause numerous injuries and deaths in Ohio every year.
Since trucks are huge pieces of machinery, truck accidents often lead to multi-vehicle accidents or rollover accidents that can increase the number of injuries and fatalities. In most cases, truck drivers are commercial drivers operating the vehicles that belong to the trucking company. The attorneys at Kisling Nestico & Redick have helped many truck accident victims seek compensation in court.
In many cases, the attorneys at Kisling Nestico & Redick research the various aspects of accident investigations that are conducted by the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. Looking into various aspects like skid marks, maintenance details of the trucks, traces of alcohol in the truck driver’s blood or any other evidence that may be brought to light can help our personal injury lawyers as well as help the court, judge and a jury to understand the responsibility of the truck driver and what caused the truck accident.
Many truck accident victims suffer from serious injuries. Injuries may sometimes result in fatalities or long-term disabilities. Often, steep medical expenses are incurred due to prolonged medical care needed in cases of permanent or temporary disability, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and fractures. The court may even look into the financial losses suffered due to the accident along with the emotional trauma or the loss of a loved one to determine the compensation owed to the truck accident victim and the accident victim’s family.
