Lawyers for Victims of Semi Crashes in Wayne County, OH

A large truck accident can be absolutely devastating, especially to drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles. The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks makes them incredibly dangerous. In many accident cases, however, the truck driver will walk away unharmed while those in other cars are left with life-changing injuries or are even killed. If you have been injured in a tractor-trailer accident, you may be unsure of how to recover the compensation you need. Fortunately, the experienced team at Parker & Erb, LLC is equipped to help you get your life back on track, no matter how serious your injuries may be.

Brunswick Law Firm for Semi-Truck Accident Victims

A standard 18-wheeler is an extremely large, heavy machine, measuring about 70 feet and weighing up to 80,000 pounds including cargo. Some trucks are even larger and heavier, requiring special certification and operator training. In the United States, commercial trucking is a multibillion-dollar industry which utilizes more than 3.6 million tractor-trailers to transport 10.4 billion tons of freight per year. With so many trucks on American roadways, accidents are virtually unavoidable, and it is usually the drivers and passengers in other vehicles who suffer the consequences.

At Parker & Erb, LLC, we realize that a truck accident can occur for many different reasons, and a moment of inattention can have tragic results. Our experienced personal injury lawyers handle truck crashes caused by:

  • Distracted driving, including cell phone use and the use of electronic navigation systems.
  • Driving under influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Driver fatigue from overly long hours and unrealistic deadlines.
  • Substandard truck maintenance.
  • Failure to adhere to safety procedures and protocols.
  • Defective or counterfeit equipment and parts.
  • Aggressive operation or driver error.
  • Improperly secured cargo.

Determining Liability for Ohio Truck Accidents

Commercial truck accidents are often much more complicated than an accident involving private vehicles. In many cases, a tractor-trailer crash involves a number of entities including the driver, the transport company, the individuals or company who loaded the truck, the company who last serviced the truck, and all of their respective insurance companies. Any of these parties could potentially share in the responsibility for the accident, and each one is likely to try to shift the blame to the others.

Transportation companies often have teams of attorneys working to help them minimize their liability following an accident. You should be properly represented as well. At Parker & Erb, LLC, we will investigate the circumstances of your accident and identify which party or parties should be held responsible for your injuries. While the situation may seem overwhelming, we will not be intimidated into accepting a settlement that fails to meet your needs. If necessary, we are also prepared to litigate your case in court so that you can get the full compensation you need to put your life back together.
