Legal Response After A Big Rig Accident
As motorists, we share the road with a large number of big rigs. However, if there is an accident, we don’t share in the damages. It is always the people in the smaller vehicle who suffer serious injuries.
At the law firm of Gregory S. Young Co., LPA, in Cincinnati, our lawyers take highway safety very seriously. We represent people who are injured in semitruck accidents in Ohio and Northern Kentucky. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Holding Big Rig Operators And Trucking Companies Accountable
Big rig accidents may involve violations of Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations that apply to interstate trucking. Our law firm has the knowledge and tenacity to uncover DOT safety violations that may be important evidence in your case.
Examples of truck driver and trucking company negligence in big rig accidents include:
- Driving too long without taking a required rest break
- Driving an overloaded or improperly loaded truck
- Failure to maintain safety equipment such as breaks and lights
- Truck speeding
- Truck tailgating
- Hiring unqualified drivers
- Lack of safety training
- Drug or alcohol use by the driver
Any type of negligence by a truck driver or trucking company can have devastating consequences. The sooner you contact us after an accident, the sooner our lawyers can go to work collecting and preserving evidence that can be crucial to winning your case.
