Big rig crashes on the rise
The improving economy means there are more trucks and cars on the road in Ohio, and across the country, than ever before.In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports the number of people killed in large truck accidents in the US increased five percent from 2015.Of those killed, 72 percent, or 3,127 people, were occupants of other cars and vehicles, while another 468 fatalities were pedestrians and cyclists.
For many, being involved in a truck accident as a motorist, a passenger, or a pedestrian is fatal.For others, the injuries suffered in these collisions can be devastating and may include:
Traumatic brain injury (TBI):Injury to the brain happens in seconds. By the time the vehicles stop, devastating life-long injury could have occurred.Damage to the brain occurs from the force of the brain moving within the skull, blunt force trauma, or penetration of the skull.
Spinal cord injury (SCI):Injury to the backbone or the vulnerable spinal cord can cause immediate and permanent loss of mobility and function.
Broken bones and internal injuries:The impact of a truck can quickly demolish bones and damage tissue and internal organs.
With any serious injury, medical care is your first concern.The next priority is to contact an experienced truck accident lawyer in Ohio.While speaking with an attorney may be the last thing that you or your family want to do, it is critical to collect evidence that may be available only at the outset of your injury.
After a large truck crash, trucking companies dispatch an investigator to the scene quickly to take pictures, obtain logbook information, and gather the evidence needed to defend the trucking company or the driver if there is a claim for personal injury and/or wrongful death.
When you work with our skilled truck crash attorneys, we protect your rights and build a strong case by gaining access to the same evidence. Witness statements and investigative reports help identify the cause of the accident as operator error, truck maintenance or loading, or other factors.
Behind collision statistics are people like you who are severely injured.Whether you live in Chillicothe, Waverly, or elsewhere in Ohio, our legal team delivers rapid, experienced legal support to investigate your case and obtain maximum compensation on your behalf.
