Truck Accident Injury Lawyers in Ohio
Because they often drive hundreds of miles every day and possess special licenses and receive professional training, truck and bus drivers are held to higher standards than the typical motorist. However, when these drivers fail to follow the rules of the road or act negligently, tragic results can include catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.
It Takes a Good Lawyer to Get a Good Settlement
At Gervelis Law Firm, we are experience in successfully handling truck accident cases that have resulted in serious injuries and death. Because every minute is critical in preparing an effective case, it is important to contact us as soon as possible to arrange your free initial consultation.
Was the Driver in Your Accident Qualified?
Because of the size and weight of semi trucks, tractor trailers and 18 wheelers, these vehicles are capable of causing serious damage, injuries and even loss of life when accidents occur. As a result, professional truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other motorists. For instance, they are required to undergo background checks, receive special training and hold commercial driver's licenses (CDL).
If a driver was unqualified at the time of your accident, abusing drugs or alcohol, texting while driving or otherwise negligent in any way, you may have a claim against a negligent trucking company. Our attorneys will thoroughly examine all documentation to determine if the truck driver was properly trained and licensed, and then work diligently to create a compelling case on your behalf.
