Driving on Ohio highways with large trucks requires vigilance and defensive driving techniques that are not typical when traveling alongside standard-sized vehicles. Tractor-trailers and large trucks, for example, can sway when encountering crosswinds, causing the trailers to cross into another lane, require more time to slow down, and have significant blind spots.

When a trucker is behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer weighing 4-5 times more than the vehicles around it, the driver must stay alert, drive within the speed limits, and ensure that the equipment is functioning properly. Unfortunately, more often than not, that is not the case.

According to a study conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, close to 30 percent of truck crashes are caused by inadequate brakes, while another prominent factor is driver fatigue. About 13 percent of truck drivers in accidents reported fatigue at the time of the crash.

As with all accidents, when the truck driver or trucking company is found to be negligent or reckless and the cause of the accident, you may be eligible for compensation. You could receive payment for:

  • All medical expenses;
  • Cost for property damage and loss;
  • Lost wages;
  • Pain and suffering.

When trying to recover damages from trucking accidents, understanding the commercial road carrier business, the complexities of the law and the rights of the involved parties is critical. Demonstrating that the other driver was negligent can take time and resources, and it is crucial to begin the process as soon after the accident as possible.
