When a tractor trailer accident occurs, the likelihood of injury, death, and property damage is heightened. Truck accidents result in more serious injuries and a larger number of deaths than other traffic accidents. These trucks can be 75 feet long and weigh in around 80,000 pounds. When negligence is the cause of a truck collision, the truck accident attorneys at Wright & Schulte are ready to make sure the innocent victims of these tragedies are able to seek compensation from those responsible. You may have a right to recover medical bills, lost wages, emotional distress, and other damages brought on by the accident.
For over 20 years, the truck accident attorneys of Wright & Schulte have built a reputation as dedicated advocates for the injured as we successfully protect the rights of personal injury victims in throughout Ohio.
While the trucking industry is heavily regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), many trucking companies fail to follow the rules. When trucking companies break these rules, our truck accident attorneys have successfully represented clients in lawsuits involving:
- Brake or tire problems
- Driving too fast for conditions
- Roadway problems (i.e. poor design)
- Drug or alcohol use
- Pressure from trucking company to complete delivery
- Violation of traffic rules
- Distracted driving
- Overloaded trucks
- Poorly secured cargo
