Last May, a semi truck carrying a load of paint ran off of I-65 and crashed into a tree, killing the driver. When the truck lost control and crossed the highway, no other vehicles were in its path, or the tragedy could have been multiplied. In March, a semi hauling over 20 tons of french fries on Southbound I-65 ran off the road and crashed into a tree. The driver was taken to a hospital by helicopter after being removed from the cab of the truck in serious condition. Again, thankfully, no other vehicles were in the path of the giant truck. Accidents involving big commercial trucks occur frequently around the Columbus area.

Commercial truck accidents are horrific events that cause devastating injuries to occupants of smaller vehicles. Because damages from these accidents can easily run into millions of dollars, trucking insurance companies will do all they can to reduce or deny your claim, and they don’t play fair. Even if you are at the accident scene awaiting medical help, you can believe they have people on the way to the accident scene now.
An Experienced Trucking Accident Lawyer Will Protect Your Interests
Trucking insurance companies employ teams of skilled accident scene investigators, which they dispatch as soon as they are notified an accident involving one of their drivers has occurred. These people may act helpful, but they are not your friends. Their job is to reduce or deny your claim. They may pose as helpful bystanders in order to get you to say something they can use against you later. They have been known to try to skew police accident scene investigations in their favor by pointing out evidence that could implicate another driver, not the trucker, as having caused the accident and distracting police away from anything that may implicate the trucker.
Isaacs & Isaacs truck accident law firm sends out our own seasoned accident scene investigators to gather evidence and protect our client’s interests. We will be at your side fast if you’ve been hurt in a major accident. The first thing you must do, if you are able, is to call 911 for medical help. Then you should call a lawyer. You will need help to level the playing field and protect your claim.
Isaacs & Isaacs Semi Truck Accident Lawyers Will Fight for You!
Commercial trucking is under no obligation to turn over their records which could show the cause of your accident until a lawsuit has been filed. Hopefully, this isn’t the case, but often, people who are lucky enough to survive a collision with a big commercial truck are left facing years of surgeries, physical therapy, permanent disability and other devastation that commonly results from these catastrophic accidents.
If we need to file a lawsuit to get your maximum compensation from all liable parties, Isaacs & Isaacs personal injury law firm has the resources to bear the burden of investigating and litigating your case. We work on a contingency fee basis: you don’t owe us anything until and unless we get you your money. We will find out what caused the accident, who all is responsible, and we will demand every penny of compensation you are entitled to under the law.
Trucking companies have been known to ignore Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration rules in order to make more money. They overload trucks and force truck drivers to work long hours to remain competitive. They cut corners on inspections and repairs. Because of this unethical behavior, trucking accidents that cause serious injuries are a common occurrence on our nation’s highways. In accidents where gross negligence or criminal conduct was involved, juries have been known to award tens of millions of dollars in punitive damages to punish wrongdoers and discourage others from doing the same thing.
We Will Demand Maximum Compensation From All Those Responsible
Isaacs & Isaacs truck accident lawyers understand that no amount of money will restore your physical health or bring back a beloved family member who died in a collision with a big commercial truck. However, we believe that if victims make it more expensive for trucking companies to ignore FMCSA safety regulations than they think it is to comply, these accidents and the tragedies they cause can be greatly reduced.
We do all we can to make sure that negligent trucking companies and CDL drivers pay the maximum amount when they injure and kill, and in doing so, we hope to help keep everybody safe. We are on call now if you need assistance.
