Were You Injured in a Trucking Accident in Ohio?
Ohio serves as a crossroad state for trucks moving goods throughout the Midwest and Great Lakes region to all points on the compass. Truck drivers and their companies are subject to strict regulations governing hours on the road, safety procedures and maintenance requirements. Even so, every year thousands of truck accidents occur because of deliberate violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) or unskilled/impaired drivers trying to handle multi-ton vehicles at highway speeds. These are not simply "big" car accidents: they are much more complex, requiring more investigation and specialized knowledge of engineering, crash reconstruction, and regulatory guidelines. Spangenberg trial attorneys specialize in the most serious accidents, where our resources and sophistication make all the difference.

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, 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. They will do everything possible to find a reason to avoid paying out of their own pocket to cover the full extent of your medial and financial losses. You need someone dedicated to you — not to the trucking company that put a dangerous driver or rig on the road.
