Semi Truck Accidents
Ohio attorneys you can trust
Truck accidents involving 18-wheelers in Ohio can be very complicated – and very severe. That’s because these large, semi-trucks often weigh thousands of pounds more than most cars and other, smaller vehicles.
And since many semi truck accidents occur on highways like I-90 or I-77 in Cleveland - or elsewhere in Ohio - injuries can often be severe since many tractor trailers are traveling at high speeds in an effort to get to their destination as quickly as possible.

- Tired truck drivers (truck drivers often fall asleep at the wheel)
- Inexperienced truck drivers
- Poorly maintained trucks

Why choose us
You might think you don’t need an attorney if you’re injured in an accident caused by a commercial truck driver. If the driver did something wrong, all you have to do is contact the police, your insurance company and they’ll take care of everything, right?
Wrong. In most cases, semi truck accidents turn out to be extremely complicated. That’s because the truck driver who caused your crash will likely not admit to doing anything wrong. The truck driver might even try to claim you did something to cause your crash.
And then there’s the trucking companies and insurance companies that are often involved in such cases. They usually do everything they can to pay injury victims as little as possible. That’s why you need us on your side, standing up for your rights and demanding the compensation you rightfully deserve.
