Ohio Truck Accident Compensation

Commercial trucks are far larger than most other vehicles on the road, and as such, pose a significant risk to the safety of other people on the road.  People in cars, as well as motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians are likely to be seriously injured or killed if they are involved in a trucking accident.  These people and their family members have legal rights, including the right to seek truck accident compensation. 

Life already presents far too many obstacles without being the victim of a serious truck accident. But to then have a trucking or insurance company lawyer deny you damages for medical expenses, lost wages and more is unconscionable.

Unlike ordinary drivers who may be commuting to work, driving their kids to school or going on a family vacation, commercial truck drivers are professional drivers who are being paid to drive.  Furthermore, commercial trucking is a hugely profitable industry in the United States, yielding an estimated 255.5 billion dollars in annual revenue in the United States.  Truck drivers and trucking companies are making a profit on the road, and should be held to the highest standards for safety.  When a trucking accident injures or kills innocent drivers, trucking companies and their insurance companies must be held accountable.  Contact an experienced truck accident lawyer to learn more about your legal rights and truck accident compensation.
