Columbus Semi Truck Accident Attorney
At the law office of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., our attorneys provide expert legal counsel to those who have been seriously injured as a result of an accident caused by a semi truck or an 18-wheeler. If you have been injured in a crash caused by a semi truck, our experienced Columbus semi truck accident attorneys will provide you with unparalleled legal representation and work to secure the best recovery possible.
Given the disparity in weight between 18-wheelers and personal vehicles, as well as the speed at which most accidents involving large trucks occur, the results can often be particularly devastating and sometimes even fatal. The results of semi truck accidents are also particularly expensive. Drivers injured in such accidents face not only serious physical injuries, but also costly hospital bills, extensive rehabilitation, and long-lasting emotional distress. Our experienced Columbus semi truck accident lawyers can help you navigate the process of pursuing a claim and will work tirelessly to get you the recovery you deserve.
Common Reasons that Truck Accidents Cause Personal Injury Claims
Even considering the federal regulations surrounding the number of hours truck drivers are permitted to drive per day, driver fatigue is a predominate cause of accidents. Improper truck maintenance can also lead to serious accidents, especially when improper maintenance leads to break failures. Much like all car accidents, distracted driving due to texting or eating behind the wheel is also a common cause of injury. There are a number of reasons in which 18-wheeler accidents can be caused by truck drivers, including:
- Driver Fatigue;
- Distracted Driving;
- Alcohol and drugs;
- Poor training;
- Negligent hiring; and
- Improper Truck Maintenance.
Regardless of the exact cause of your accident, however, our attorneys have the experience and the skill to represent you and deliver exceptional results.
Our Columbus semi truck accident lawyers are experienced in handling cases involving serious injuries to drivers, including:
- Head, neck, and spinal injuries
- Bulged Discs and Herniated Discs
- Broken bones, lacerations, and concussions
- Paralysis and quadriplegia
- Wrongful death
- Traumatic brain injuries
While no accident is typical, the most common areas of compensation for such claims include past, current, and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical deformities, scarring, and rehabilitation costs. Our attorneys are able to determine the extent of your specific damages and assist you in obtaining meaningful recovery.
