Garfield Heights, OH - One Seriously Hurt in Crash with Semi at 131st St & Christine Ave

Thousands of semi-trucks and commercial vehicles pass through Ohio’s highways and byways every day on their journey to their final destinations. Some expect that the speed limit in Ohio will be lifted shortly, which would increase the number of truck accidents. Thousands of people are injured and hundreds are killed each year in tractor-trailer accidents, according to current statistics.

In the event of a collision with another vehicle, large trucks might cause catastrophic injuries. As businesses scramble to fill vacancies owing to a driver shortage, inexperienced truck drivers are a leading cause of fatal commercial vehicle accidents. Major crashes involving 18-wheelers and commercial vehicles occur as a result of this recklessness. When another driver’s recklessness causes an accident, injured victims can contact a serious injury lawyer about filing a personal injury claim to recover lost damages.
