Dump Truck Accidents in Ohio
When a passenger car collides with a large semi-truck, those traveling inside are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries. Every year, more than 500,000 crashes involving big rigs are reported in the United States. These collisions claim the lives of thousands of people. Passengers in passenger cars accounted for nearly 67% of these fatalities in 2019.
In the event of a collision with a passenger vehicle, large 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 carelessness contributes to serious 18-wheeler and commercial vehicle collisions. When another driver’s negligence causes a collision, injured victims should speak with a Brunswick Hills serious injury lawyer about filing a personal injury claim to recover lost compensation.
