Toledo OH Truck Accident Lawyer
We help injury victims get the compensation they need and deserve
Commercial trucks are a common sight in Toledo – traveling on the Turnpike and driving down Jefferson Avenue or other city streets on their way to drop off a delivery. Being in an accident with one of these trucks can result in severe injuries that are life-changing. A truck accident attorney from Gervelis Law Firm can help victims get justice.
The reason commercial trucks – which include tractor-trailers, flatbed trucks and box trucks – can cause such serious injuries is because they are much larger and heavier than cars. That’s one reason why truck drivers need training and require a commercial driver’s license. Just one act of negligence can result in a devastating accident.
Our Toledo truck accident attorneys know how to hold negligent truck drivers and trucking companies responsible. We fight insurance companies who don’t take your injuries seriously enough and try to pay you less than you deserve. Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation possible so you can fully focus on your recovery.
The experienced law firm you need
It can be difficult to pursue a claim after a truck accident. Part of the problem is that there are usually several entities involved. These can include the truck driver, the trucking company, and the company that loaded the truck. And each can be represented by different insurance companies and have different lawyers.
Our firm has been helping truck accident victims for many years. Our attorneys know how to handle these complicated cases and build a strong case to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. This includes compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.
Whether you were injured in a jackknife accident, rollover, underride crash or other type of truck accident, we will find out what really happened. Our legal team will investigate your crash to look for evidence that proves you were the victim of negligence. We will also take quick action to preserve valuable evidence that is in the control of the trucking company, such as electronic logging devices and event data recorders.
The insurance company may try to make you a lowball settlement offer. We focus on building a strong case and let them know we are prepared to take it to trial. This often convinces insurance companies it is in their best interests to negotiate with us on a favorable settlement.
