Catastrophic And Fatal Injuries Are Possible
An accident with a semi or other commercial vehicle can be devastating and may result in physical harm such as:
- Broken or crushed bones
- Other crush injuries
- Damage to internal organs
- Severe lacerations
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe brain injuries
These injuries often lead to scarring, disfigurement, disability and, in the worst cases, death.
The injured person and their family must adapt to a very different lifestyle after an injury or death occurs. That means that they will need full compensation for physical injuries, emotional trauma, long-term care, loss of enjoyment of life and additional losses. If the victim was a wage earner, the family will also need compensation for the lost income and benefits that that person provided.
Let our Ohio truck accident lawyers take care of you and your family after an injury or wrongful death. They know how to investigate trucking accidents and value your case, often working with experts in accident reconstruction, engineering, road design and more. Once our attorneys determine why the accident happened and who is responsible, they will pursue compensation for you.
