The Reason for Many Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents frequently occur as a result of driver fatigue.  Federal regulations, applicable to trucks operating in Ohio, require trucking firms to restrict drivers’ hours and to keep a log of those hours.  You can view these regulations here: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/rules-regulations/truck/driver/truck-driver.htm.  In addition, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles maintains requirements for holders of a commercial drivers’ license (CDL): http://bmv.ohio.gov/faq_cdl.stm.  Unfortunately, driver fatigue remains a common problem.  When trucks cause accidents, the results can be catastrophic.

Truck-on-car accidents tend to have particularly devastating consequences due to the size and speed differential when aggressively-driven, behemoth tractor-trailer rigs are mixed with ever-smaller passenger vehicles.

When you or a loved one is injured by a negligent truck operator, it is important to seek advice from an attorney who is experienced in handling these claims.  Not only do they require an understanding of Ohio and federal trucking regulations, but they also require skilled attorneys who have an understanding of catastrophic injuries and wrongful death claims in Ohio.  At Mishkind Law, we have the knowledge and resources to take on a big trucking outfit and its insurer.
