When you are driving down the road and end up near a large truck, we know that you do your best to stay well away from it. However, there may be a time when you need a Toledo truck accident lawyer. At Paulozzi LPA Injury Lawyers, we want to help if the negligence of a truck company or a truck driver has caused you harm. Let our team get to work investigating this incident so we can secure the compensation you deserve for all of your crash-related expenses.

What Are The Statistics?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us that there were more than 145,000 injuries involving large trucks during the latest reporting year. In Ohio’s latest reporting year, there were nearly 200 commercial vehicles involved in fatal crashes and many others involved in injury crashes.

 

Let’s Talk About The Injuries

Because these vehicles are so large and weigh much more than the average passenger vehicle, they can cause severe injuries in the event of a crash. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in the aftermath of a truck crash:

  • Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Crush injuries

In many cases, a crash victim will need extensive medical care and rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery. In many cases, an injury victim loses their income because they cannot work while they recover.

What Causes These Crashes

We often find that large truck crashes are caused by either vehicle failure or a negligent driver.

Truck companies and owners have a responsibility to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles. If they do not, any of the following systems could malfunction and cause a major crash:

  • Powertrain
  • Tires/wheels
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Lighting
  • Connectors/hitch

Truck drivers should always be trained for each vehicle they are asked to operate. They should obey all state and federal trucking regulations, including following weight capacities as well as never following rest/break requirements. Truck drivers should never operate their vehicles while they are distracted, fatigued, or impaired.

Truck drivers and owners need to be held accountable if their careless or negligent actions cause major injuries.

We Are One Phone Call Away

Any major vehicle crash can create a confusing situation, but one involving a larger truck can be scary and leave people with severe injuries. If you or a loved one have been harmed by the actions of a truck driver or truck company, please seek legal assistance immediately.
