Truck crashes are a regular occurrence in Dayton and the surrounding area. In a recent crash on I-75 North, the driver of the smaller vehicle, an Impala, died of his injuries while the trucker and passenger in the semitrailer escaped uninjured.
In most accidents involving a collision with a big commercial truck, the occupants of the smaller vehicles are the ones who suffer terribly. Because big trucks are so dangerous, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration was created to regulate big trucks that weigh over 10,000 pounds and help create safer situations for other drivers they share the roads with. But trucking companies don’t always want to play by the rules.
Contacting a Dayton Truck Accident Law Firm
When big trucking doesn’t abide by the safety rules and guidelines enacted by the FMCSA, they are playing Russian roulette with the lives of occupants of smaller vehicles. But they don’t want to pay the price for their recklessness. Their insurance carriers will do just about anything to avoid paying out the millions of dollars in damages these horrific accidents cause. If you or somebody you love has been in a collision with a big commercial truck, it is very important that you contact an experienced accident lawyer right away. You should call an attorney from the accident scene if you are able to do so.
Isaacs & Isaacs semi truck accident lawyers have been representing people who have been injured or have lost a loved one in these catastrophic accidents for decades. We employ attorneys who used to work in insurance defense, and we are aware of the lengths trucking insurance will go to in order to avoid paying the price for trucking negligence. As soon as they have been notified that a serious accident involving one of their trucks has occurred, they send a team of skilled accident scene investigators out to the crash site.
A Conversation With Darryl Isaacs All About Truck Accidents

You will need an experienced truck accident lawyer at your side ASAP in order to protect your interests. Isaacs & Isaacs employs our own team of seasoned trucking accident scene investigators. Our team will go to the site of a major accident as soon as you call us for help to gather evidence before it is altered or destroyed and interview witnesses. Do not say anything at the accident scene about:
- How fast you were going
- What you were doing at the time of the accident
- Whether your car needs repairs
- How badly you’re hurt
If somebody besides medical personnel or law enforcement asks you any questions, your safest option is to refer them to speak to your truck accident lawyer.
Isaacs & Isaacs Will Fight to Obtain Your Maximum Compensation
The trucking company does not have to give you information they have that could prove negligence on the part of the trucker, the trucking company or even third-party liability caused the accident. You will have to file a lawsuit in order to demand access to evidence that could prove negligence on the part of the trucker or trucking company, such as:
- Access to the truck
- The trucker’s cell phone
- Company records of maintenance and repairs
- The trucker’s log book
- The black box recording on the truck
- Company employees’ testimony
The stakes are high in these cases. Damages can easily run into millions of dollars, and the trucking company and their insurance carriers are well aware of this and will avoid paying you the just compensation you are entitled to at all costs. You need an experienced truck accident law firm in your corner to level the playing field.
