With cargo being delivered all across the country every day, there are more and more trucks on the roads. With an increase in vehicles on the road comes the increased risk of accidents. Many trucking companies pay drivers by the load, which means drivers are pushing to deliver their cargo as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next job. Unfortunately, that push ends up causing accidents as truck drivers do not follow federal trucking regulations or state traffic laws. If you or a loved one were injured in an Ohio truck accident, you need to contact our truck accident lawyers in Perrysburg.
At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we have years of experience helping clients recover compensation for injuries they sustained due to someone else’s negligence on the road. We have been representing personal injury clients since 1973 and have a proven track record of success, helping injured parties hold these trucking companies and drivers responsible.
Truck accidents can occur because of many things. Some of the most common causes of truck accidents we see in Perrysburg include:
It is not uncommon to have the trucking company’s insurance adjuster offer you a nominal amount of money early on in the claims process, especially if an attorney does not represent you. They claim it is a fair settlement, but it is not. Their hope is you take the money now to pay off bills and sign a release, so you are precluded from pursuing more money.
Negotiating with the insurance company is one of the hardest aspects of pursuing a large truck claim. You need an experienced attorney on your side who can help protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Hiring an attorney is crucial because you can focus on your recovery while we handle all the legal tasks. We will conduct our independent investigation and collect relevant evidence. We will request your medical documents and retain experts if necessary. We can retain an accident reconstructionist to help prove liability or a medical specialist who can confirm your injuries are related to the incident and that your treatment was necessary.
