Experienced Cincinnati Lawyers Excel in Truck Accident Litigation
Skilled Ohio attorneys obtain substantial recoveries in commercial vehicle cases
Busy Southwest Ohio highways such as Interstates 75 and 71 attract substantial commercial traffic from neighboring states and around the country. However, this activity often leads to devastating accidents involving large trucks and other much smaller vehicles. At Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A. in Cincinnati, we have secured financial recoveries for injured truck accident victims since 1972. Our lawyers have more than 250 years of combined experience, and we use that background to challenge insurance companies and other powerful adversaries. We take every legal measure to win compensation for our clients in court or through a beneficial settlement.
Accomplished advocates seek legal relief for truck crash victims
A large truck might weigh 20 times as much as a car, so a collision can be catastrophic. In addition to the normal road hazards all drivers encounter, tractor-trailer drivers are often under heavy pressure to move their cargo quickly. Unfortunately, that pressure can lead to dangerous legal violations, including:
- Overtired drivers — There are strict limits on how long a driver can operate a commercial vehicle. Overworked, distracted and fatigued drivers are prone to lose focus, potentially leading to accidents such as T-bones, underrides, rear-end collisions and jackknifes.
- Excessive speed — Driving too fast is dangerous anytime, but the risk of catastrophic injury rises when a large truck is involved. Whether the speeding is attributed to simple negligence or a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs, we can draw a connection between the misconduct and the collision.
- Unsafe load weight — Overburdened vehicles contribute to problems such as brake failure, tire blowouts and lost loads. Our lawyers conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether important cargo regulations were breached.
During a free telephone consultation, our Ohio personal injury lawyers can explain how the laws apply in your situation and assess the likelihood of a successful outcome.
Knowledgeable advisers provide effective guidance after a collision
Approximately 25,000 truck crashes occurred in Ohio during 2015. When you have been hit by an 18-wheeler or some other type of large truck, the damage can be overwhelming. Defendants and their insurance companies often try to take advantage of your situation to pressure you into an unfair settlement. We know, however, that the damages you deserve may be significant, including medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses. In every case, we demand full compensation for your harm and won’t be intimidated. Whether you’ve suffered broken bones, ligament damage, severed limbs, brain trauma, spinal injuries or any other condition, we will construct the strongest possible medical evidence to support your claim. Our firm also represents estates and family members in wrongful death actions after a loved one is killed in a fatal accident.
