Trucking Accident Attorneys Serving Ohio & Kentucky
Tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks can do serious damage in collisions with smaller vehicles. All too often, truck accidents result in catastrophic personal injuries and fatalities. That is why truck drivers and trucking companies are legally held to certain standards of safety and responsibility.
At the law firm of Barron Peck Bennie & Schlemmer, our Cincinnati truck accident lawyers help clients in Ohio and Kentucky pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims for trucking accidents caused by negligent and reckless behavior such as the following:
- Driver fatigue: Many trucking companies push drivers to make deliveries on time and then look the other way when their drivers work more hours than they are supposed to under federal law, rely on caffeine and drugs to stay awake, and falsify their log books.
- Inadequate maintenance: 18-wheelers are complex vehicles that come under heavy stress. They need to be inspected regularly and repaired whenever any part wears down. Unfortunately, some trucking companies do not adequately maintain their vehicles.
- Poor training and supervision: Commercial drivers operate heavy machinery for a living, and they are expected to operate their vehicles safely and effectively. Trucking companies that do not provide adequate training and supervision can be held accountable.
If you have been injured in a highway accident caused by a commercial truck, we will take immediate steps to carefully investigate every aspect of your case. As experienced trial lawyers, we are fully prepared to litigate claims against big trucking insurance companies.
