A lawyer can investigate your accident, gather evidence to support your claim, negotiate a fair settlement, or take your personal injury case to court. We can explain other ways that our attorneys can help you after a truck accident.

Investigating a Truck Accident

Truck accidents can involve complex investigations that require the use of accident reconstruction specialists or other experts. Our attorneys can protect your interests during an accident investigation, preserve critical evidence, and build a case for why you deserve compensation.

Falsified Logbooks

Trucking companies and truck drivers are required to keep certain records about truck operations, including how many hours a driver spends on the road and when the truck was inspected or repaired. When a driver or trucking company was negligent in causing your injuries, they may attempt to falsify records to protect themselves. Our lawyers can help determine when this has happened and hold the driver or trucking company accountable.

Damages in Truck Accidents

When you contact an Ohio truck accident lawyer after you’ve been injured, one of your main questions is likely to be, “How much is my case worth?” Our attorneys can explain the types of compensation, known as damages, that you may be able to receive.

Federal and State Regulations for Trucks

Truck drivers and trucking companies are subject to specific state and federal regulations that govern the operation and maintenance of commercial trucks. Our attorneys have detailed knowledge of these regulations and how they can affect your case.

Liability for Trucking Accidents

Liability in trucking accidents can be complicated. There may be multiple parties that ultimately are liable for your injuries, including the truck driver, trucking company, parts manufacturer, or a third party that contributed to the cause of your accident. Our attorneys have the skill to identify all liable parties and fight to hold them accountable for your injuries.

Proving a Truck Accident Claim

As the person making the claim, it’s your responsibility to prove that someone else caused your injuries. Our attorneys have a demonstrated history of success at proving accident claims and obtaining fair compensation for injured people.

Dangerous Roads and Highways

Sometimes the conditions of the road itself may have contributed to your accident. We can explain your options if dangerous road conditions were a factor in your crash.
