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
