Heavy Truck Litigation

Akron Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys Serving Ohio

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act requires truck drivers and trucking companies to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. Unsafe driving such as speeding, oversized loads and driving without adequate sleep are factors that lead to endangering the driving public. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that National Fatalities involving Large Trucks in 2011 were 3,781 and rose to 3,921 in 2012. People injured in the same time frame were 88,000 and 104,000, respectively; in both years the percentage of Fatalities that were not the occupants of the Large Truck were 83%.

As with all personal injury cases, within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, witnesses may be difficult to locate or even forget important details. To protect your legal rights following an injury or wrongful death resulting from a trucking crash or incident, you should consult a personal injury law firm as quickly as possible.
