Truck Accidents in Ohio
The occupants of a passenger car colliding with a large semi-truck are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries. In the United States, over 500,000 crashes involving commercial trucks are reported each year. Thousands of people are killed in these collisions. In 2019, passengers in personal cars were responsible for nearly 67% of trucking-related fatalities.
In the event of a collision with a passenger vehicle, large semi-trucks can cause catastrophic injuries. As companies try to fill positions due to a driver shortage, inexperienced truck drivers are a leading cause of deadly commercial vehicle accidents. This irresponsibility contributes to serious 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle collisions. When another driver’s negligence causes a collision, injured victims should speak with a Brook Park catastrophic injury lawyer about filing a personal injury claim to recover lost compensation.
