When Truck Accidents Cause Serious Injury
The average 18 wheeler weighs approximately 80,000 pounds. When the weight of the truck combines with speed and other factors, innocent motorists can sustain serious injury or die. Our experienced attorneys protect the rights of our seriously injured clients and surviving family members who have lost loved ones in fatal truck accidents. Whether you have concerns regarding a back or spinal cord injury, a head or neck injury or a wrongful death claim, your legal concerns will be handled with great care and knowledge.
What causes truck accidents?
The Law Offices of Gary Bruce has substantial experience investigating truck accidents. We call in experts — such as engineers and accident reconstructionists — who provide us with solid evidence and a clear understanding of how the accident occurred. Truck accidents are usually caused by noncompliance with federal and state trucking regulations and can occur because of the following:
- Driver fatigue
- Excessive speed/driving too fast for road or weather conditions
- Poorly maintained truck
- Faulty equipment
- Overloaded truck/improperly loaded truck
- Other noncompliance with federal and state regulations
We analyze evidence related to the crash, including driver's logs and truck maintenance reports, to determine liability. Through negotiated settlements or litigation, we seek fair compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses.
We are the good guys, ready to help you obtain the resolution you need to move forward with life. Contact us today to schedule your free initial consultation. The Law Offices of Gary Bruce are located across from the Government Center in downtown Columbus. Weekend and evening appointments can be scheduled upon request.
