Truck Accidents in Ohio

Millions Recovered for Accident Victims

Many large trucks travel Ohio's numerous shipping lanes and truck routes on a daily basis to provide goods to states throughout the entire country. Drivers are accustomed to seeing big rigs and 18-wheelers on the roads, and smaller commercial trucks are also a common sight. While truckers are familiar with Ohio roadways, accidents do occur.

At King Law Offices, I am proud to say that I have assisted thousands of clients in obtaining the compensation that they deserved and I stand ready to ensure that your rights are protected, too. When you work with my firm, I will diligently pursue only the best possible resolution and use my more than 13 years of experience to your benefit.

Who is liable in my case?

Truck accidents can be devastating. While it may seem logical to blame the driver of the vehicle that hit you, there are actually numerous parties that could be held responsible for your injuries. A lot of factors need to be taken into consideration after a truck accident, and you need to ensure that your rights are fully protected.

Parties that may be liable for your damages could include:

  • The manufacturer of a faulty part - In some situations, malfunctioning brakes, steering, or axles can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. If a part malfunctioned and caused your accident, the manufacturer of the faulty product could be held liable for the damages and any compensation that you are seeking.
  • The leasing company of a truck - If the truck was under lease at the time of the collision, the leasing company could be to blame. If it is determined that poor maintenance or another leaser-controlled issue was the cause of the accident, the company could be held liable.
  • The loader - Trucks that are shipping goods long distances need to be ensure that their loads are properly secured to prevent movement or shifting during transit. Poorly secured loads can cause jackknifing, rollovers, or could fall off the truck and cause other incidents.
  • The city or county - Some accidents are the direct result of a poorly maintained road or highway. If an accident was caused by a large pothole, poor signage, or other city- or county-controlled issues, the municipality may be to blame.
  • The driver of the vehicle - If a driver was poorly trained, operating under the influence, or failing to abide by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration laws, he or she could be liable for the accident and any injuries you sustained.

When you work with my office, I will gather all necessary evidence, consult experts, and work diligently to ensure that the compensation you deserve is paid to you. Insurance companies, trucking companies, and other attorneys will try to settle for less than you deserve. In order to protect yourself, you need to work with King Law Offices.
