Trucking Accident Lawyer In Cleveland

A significant number of motorists are injured or killed every year in trucking accidents. Commercial trucks usually cause more serious injuries than passenger vehicle accidents because of their size and weight. A fully loaded truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds, whereas the average car weighs about 3,000 pounds. When these two vehicles with such different size and weight collide, the damage to the smaller vehicle and occupants is usually catastrophic.

Truck accidents happen for many reasons, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving a truck that is overloaded
  • Driving a truck with an unsecured load
  • Driving too fast for poor weather or road conditions
  • Defective truck equipment
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Drunk driving
  • Poor driver training 

There are various laws and regulations which govern the safe operation of commercial trucks and trucking companies. Strict regulations on the trucking industry mean trucking accident cases can be significantly more complex than a standard car accident case.
