I highly recommend Joe Paulozzi as a personal injury attorney. He took the time to really listen to me and hear me out concerning my case, had no reservations upon accepting my case, was readily available to speak with me whenever I had questions, obtained a maximum insurance limit settlement, and is still fighting for me because he believes my case is worth even more. He is an honest, reputable, class-act attorney.

What Are The Statistics?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us that there were more than 145,000 injuries involving large trucks during the reporting year 2017. In Ohio’s reporting year 2017, there were nearly 200 commercial vehicles involved in fatal crashes and many others involved in injury crashes.

Let’s Talk About The Injuries

Because these vehicles are so large and weigh much more than the average passenger vehicle, they can cause severe injuries in the event of a crash. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries in the aftermath of a truck crash:

  • Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
  • Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Crush injuries

In many cases, a crash victim will need extensive medical care and rehabilitation in order to make a full recovery. In many cases, an injury victim loses their income because they cannot work while they recover.

What Causes These Crashes

We often find that large truck crashes are caused by either vehicle failure or a negligent driver.

Truck companies and owners have a responsibility to regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles. If they do not, any of the following systems could malfunction and cause a major crash:

  • Powertrain
  • Tires/wheels
  • Brakes
  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Lighting
  • Connectors/hitch

Truck drivers should always be trained for each vehicle they are asked to operate. They should obey all state and federal trucking regulations, including following weight capacities as well as never following rest/break requirements. Truck drivers should never operate their vehicles while they are distracted, fatigued, or impaired.

Truck drivers and owners need to be held accountable if their careless or negligent actions cause major injuries.
