We Will Investigate the Cause and Liability of Your Truck Accident

Understanding why your truck accident happened is imperative to determining who is liable for your compensation and to what degree.

 Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Vehicle defects – this can include defective tires, faulty brakes, steering issues and other mechanical failings;
  • Poor maintenance or insufficient repairs – many truck accidents are caused by a lack of routine and necessary safety inspections and repairs, such as checking brake lines or ensuring tires are properly inflated and in good condition;
  • Weather – large commercial trucks are susceptible to the dangers of ice, fog, sleet and rain;
  • Driver error – error can lie with the truck driver or other drivers and can include things like driver distraction (texting and driving, eating, dialing a cell phone, etc.), driver intoxication, speeding, driving while tired, changing lanes without checking for other vehicles, making an illegal left-hand turn, running a traffic signal and numerous other errors and acts of negligence;
  • Trucking company error – a trucking company or employer may be liable for injuries if it is found to have unsafe hiring and training practices or demanded drivers exceed the maximum number of allowable driving hours; and
  • Unsafe load – a truck with an unsafe or unstable load may be more prone to accidents, which may be the trucking or loading company’s fault.

Truck accident claims and lawsuits are among the most complicated to investigate because there may be more than one party at fault. Our Cleveland truck accident lawyers have the know-how necessary to conduct such investigations. We understand the steps necessary to uncover who is liable for your accident and injuries.

 We Fight for Your Financial Best Interests

 As we build your truck accident claim, we focus on addressing your key concerns:

  • How will I pay my medical bills?
  • Who will pay for my ongoing medical treatment?
  • Is there any relief for my lost wages?
  • What if I can’t return to work for months or even years?

 A comprehensive claim or lawsuit should take all of your financial concerns into account.
