Even with these regulations in place, every year thousands of truck accidents occur because of deliberate violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) regulations or unskilled / impaired drivers trying to handle multi-ton vehicles at highway speeds.
Accidents involving large commercial trucks are not simply "big" car accidents. These types of collisions are much more complex. They require more investigation and specialized knowledge of engineering, crash reconstruction, and regulatory guidelines. As a result, you need a Cleveland auto accident attorney with experience in this area who can represent you effectively and knowledgeably. At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP, our Ohio trial attorneys specialize in the most serious accidents, where our resources and sophistication make all the difference.
Hurt in an 18-Wheeler Accident? Call Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP.
Our trial attorneys have access to a full range of experience, knowledge, and resources among our entire legal team. Our firm is backed by seven decades of sophisticated representation in the most complex types of personal injury cases involving semi-truck accidents—including those that resulted in catastrophic injury and death.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, or you have lost a loved one in an accident involving a truck, it is important that you don't wait until the truck company's insurance adjustor talks to you. Because of the significant liability they have for injuries and death they cause on public roads, many large freight carriers carry insufficient liability insurance. Some gamble by self-insuring for any additional amount of liability they may be required to pay.
As a result, these companies will do everything possible to find a reason to avoid paying out of their own pockets to cover the full extent of your medical and financial losses. You need someone dedicated to you and your rights—not to the trucking company that put a dangerous driver or rig on the road. Our firm is absolutely here for you, and we encourage you to contact us regarding your case.
