Trucks with a gross vehicle weight over 10,000 pounds are considered “large trucks.” Due to their massive size and weight these vehicles result in a greater amount of catastrophic accidents when compared to auto accidents. According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety, in 2013, in Ohio, there were 18,340 accidents involving heavy trucks. Of those accidents, between 3,000 and 5,000 resulted in injury and approximately 150 resulted in fatalities. More than half of the accidents involving large trucks result from the negligence of the truck driver.
Lardiere McNair DiNicola & Stonebrook, LLC has the experience necessary to assist you in cases involving heavy trucks. Trucking companies are required to follow certain federal and state motor carrier safety regulations with regards to their trucks and the hours drivers can be on the road. However, oftentimes, truck drivers are under deadlines and regularly violate their hour requirements. As a result, fatigue is a common issue in truck accidents. Other causes of these accidents can result from these trucks traveling at high rates of speed. Due to their large size, these trucks are unable to stop on time.
