Fundamentally different: accidents involving big trucks

They’re just not the same.

An auto accident involving passenger vehicles is one thing.

Conversely, a crash featuring a large commercial truck is quite another.

All motor vehicle accidents across Ohio and elsewhere have the instant capacity to yield serious injuries and – far too often – fatalities, of course.

Despite that reality, though, post-crash outcomes featuring semitrucks and other assorted big rigs are often outsized and yield catastrophic consequences.

It’s easy to see why. A tractor trailer or other similarly sized truck is a monster on wheels. Such conveyances flatly dwarf other vehicles seeking to share the road. Truck drivers have comparatively limited visibility. Their rigs can eat up a football field or more in distance before coming to a stop. And when they collide with other vehicles, resulting devastation is the norm.

That often proves especially tragic for this one simple reason: Big-truck accidents are almost always preventable. That is, the sad outcomes often linked with them virtually never occur absent some act of third-party negligence.

That could be a trucker overly fatigued from a relentless work schedule. A crash might owe centrally to a truck’s neglected maintenance. Defects in road design contribute to crashes. So too do improper cargo loading and numerous other catalysts.

Injured individuals and their loved ones are not defenseless in the wake of a truck crash involving negligence. A remedy can be pursued via a lawsuit that assigns accountability, helps to deter similar outcomes in the future and secures maximum compensation applicable to broad-based post-crash needs.
