Toledo, Ohio Truck Accident Attorneys
The trucking industry makes money and generates more business for itself not just by delivering goods from point A to point B — but by delivering them as fast as possible. Unfortunately, there comes a point where this business practice gets out of hand and it seems as though it doesn’t matter who gets in their way. At that point, innocent people pay the price.
At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we represent people in the Toledo area and throughout Ohio who have been tragically injured due to the negligence or recklessness of trucking companies or their drivers. We have been doing this work since 1973 and have helped numerous families and individuals recover the compensation needed to recover from these horrible accidents. Trucking accidents can be caused by any number of things but some of the most common causes include:
- Intoxicated or overtired drivers
- Tire blowouts
- Improperly loaded or secured cargo
- Brake failures and other mechanical failure
- Aggressive driving
In many cases, trucking companies and their insurers will be quick to offer a “fair” settlement. Our definition of the word “fair” is different. We prepare every case for trial so that we can negotiate from a position of strength, and take your claim to a jury whenever necessary.
In truck accident cases, our lawyers work with accident reconstruction specialists, investigators, and other professionals to build strong and convincing cases on behalf of our clients. This means going to the scene of the accident as quickly as possible to take measurements, preserve evidence, and identify potential witnesses. We take this factual information and combine it with the latest in case presentation technologies to show clearly, exactly what happened and why our client deserves what we’re asking for. At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we know there’s no substitute for meticulous preparation to achieve the best results.
