You and some friends finally were able to get away from work and spend the afternoon enjoying each other’s company. For the longest time you talked about visiting Traders World, and today you finally did it. You looked at the stalls, looked at the different products that the vendors had for sale, and even treated yourself to a few things that you probably did not need. All in all, a good way to spend the afternoon in Lebanon, OH. As you’re driving on Highway 75 heading north, you notice that the trailer truck in front of you is swerving. Before you know it, the truck is flipped over on its side blocking the entire highway. You and your vehicle are heading toward the overturned truck at full speed. There’s nothing you can do to escape the collision.
Statistics prove that every single day multiple drivers on American roads are confronted with scenarios like this one. In 2012 alone, more than 330,000 large trucks were involved in accidents. That is a little over 900 truck accidents every day. Or to bring the numbers a little bit closer to home, there is approximately one truck related automobile accident every one minute and 40 seconds. That means that by the time you finish reading this article, the lives of at least five or more people will have been forever changed because of a truck accident. This is a sobering thought.
Why Truck Accident Victims Need a Truck Attorney
Victims of truck accidents, whether they are automobile drivers, pedestrians, or on a bicycle, might be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries. What many do not realize is that in some instances they can bring a legal claim against the truck driver, even if they as the driver were partially at fault. Accident liability is a very complicated and nuanced part of the legal code. At Isaacs & Isaacs we have handled more than 50,000 cases, and we can honestly say that no two cases were exactly alike. For this reason, it is ill advised for Ohio accident victims to try to seek compensation from a trucking accident on their own. Their best chance for success stems from having a truck accident attorney on their side.
We Help You Determine Who the Responsible Parties Are
One of the biggest challenges in handling a truck accident case is that you as a victim may not know who all of the responsible parties or defendants are. However, discovering every single person responsible for your injuries is a key part of getting you the compensation you deserve. At Isaacs & Isaacs we have spent the past 22 years learning the investigative tricks necessary to identify all of the responsible parties and make sure that they pay for their negligence. The responsible parties could include:
And Many Others
Our goal is to locate potentially liable defendants and help you recover the most amount of damages you can for your injury. We also realize that Ohio civil statutes of limitations limit the amount of time that we have for doing this.
Choosing the Best Legal Strategy
Television programs give the idea that the best way to get compensation after a truck accident is to have an all-out brawl in court. And while we and our attorneys are not afraid to aggressively fighting for you in the court of law, our experience in winning more than $700 million in judgments for our clients has shown us that at times, settling out of court, mediation, or arbitration are the best legal strategies to get the desired results. On their own, accident victims do not have the resources to pursue these strategies. At Isaacs & Isaacs we will review your case, look at the legal options available to us, and then select a course of action that will produce the best outcome.
