TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Act quickly when you are a victim in a truck accident

Tractor trailers, semi trucks, flat beds – we must share the road with these freight carriers, but statistics show they cause a disproportionate share of accidents resulting in serious and fatal injuries in Ohio. When accidents occur, it is important that truckers and trucking companies be held accountable if we are to keep our roads safe.

If you have been injured in a truck accident in Warren, Ohio or the surrounding area, or if a loved one has been killed, it is imperative that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible. The team at Elizabeth Bernard Law has experience working with truck accident victims and trucking companies. We work quickly to establish your case so that the evidence you need doesn’t simply drive out of the state.

Sometimes truck drivers are not aware they caused an accident. An object may fall off a truck and cause an accident, or debris thrown up by a tire can damage the windshield of your vehicle. A trucker who is unaware and continues driving is, nonetheless, responsible for the damage or injuries that result. At Elizabeth Bernard Law we will investigate the accident, identify witnesses and track down the trucker to ensure you are compensated.

Tracking insurance in truck accidents

Trucking companies carry significant insurance policies in order to be prepared in the event of an accident with damages and injuries. Unfortunately, there are often multiple companies involved in insuring a single rig, with separate companies insuring the trailer and the cab, drivers who own their own rigs and trucking companies that are self-insured.

The process of tracking which companies are responsible in these cases can be complicated. Our attorneys have experience working with trucking companies and the various insurance companies that cover them. We will track down all coverage as it applies to the tractor, the trailer, the driver and the trucking company, and file a notice of claim. We ascertain immediately that evidence is preserved, including the driver logbook and service records.

Your consultation is free. Contact the team at Elizabeth Bernard Law if you believe you are entitled to compensation as a result of a trucking accident.
