A CLOSER LOOK AT TRUCK ACCIDENTS
According to the State Patrol, Ohio saw 132 commercial vehicle fatalities in 2020. But this number doesn’t include the thousands of injured people who survive a collision.
Truck accidents have many causes, but truck driver negligence is a key driver of wrecks. The driver makes some error while behind the wheel that sets of a chain of events, leading to an accident—and more often than not, incredibly painful injuries.
Some of the more common errors drivers make include:
- Driving too fast for conditions. Trucks need more time to come to a stop than lighter vehicles. A truck that is going too fast can barrel into vehicles in front of it.
- Driver confusion. Some drivers might not be familiar with Cleveland and get lost or take their eyes off the road, striking vehicles and even pedestrians.
- Impaired driver. Some drivers turn to drugs or alcohol to get through the day. They can easily mishandle their truck in these circumstances.
- Drowsy driving. The federal government closely regulates how much time a driver can be on the job during the week, but too much time driving leads to mistakes.
- Reckless driving. Some drivers are in a hurry to get to their destination, so they might cut corners and drive too aggressively or recklessly.
OTHER PRACTICE AREA CASES
TRUCK ACCIDENT INJURIES
Commercial vehicles like big-rigs and semi-tractors weigh several tons. When they crash into a vehicle, they can cause major injuries:
- Multiple fractures, often requiring surgery
- Internal organ injuries
- Permanent nerve damage
- Neck and head injuries, including concussions
- Back injuries, including spinal column injuries and paralysis
These injuries can bankrupt the average person, who cannot cover the cost of medical care. Rehabilitation is often required, too, especially when they are serious. Even someone with medical insurance might quickly deplete their savings trying to pay for everything.
