Ohio Truck Accident Lawyer - Isaacs & Isaacs


Big rig truck accidents are no doubt the most harrowing crashes that can occur on the open highways. The typical passenger vehicle is never any physical match for a commercial vehicle, regardless of the type of container being used in transportation. The result is often very serious bodily injury, including fatalities, and settling the legal claims after the fact can be complicated. In addition, accidents involving commercial vehicles are almost always strongly contested in court, and retaining an experienced Ohio truck accident lawyer like the professionals at Isaacs and Isaacs is always necessary.

One of the most common factors among many big rig truck accidents is the involvement of multiple vehicles, and sometimes multiple commercial vehicles. This is especially true when accidents occur at a high rate of speed on the open highway. Inclement weather can also cause serious big rig accidents as well, including rainy and wet conditions along with snow and ice. This means that crashes including several vehicles can be complicated to unravel and more complicated to prosecute. In a personal injury claim it is important to remember that your attorney from Isaacs and Isaacs is actually prosecuting the negligent respondents on your behalf and experience is of the utmost concern. All parties involved will have legal representation as well, including the affected insurance companies. This means that you too will need aggressive representation for a fair settlement.

What To Do After a Truck Accident – A Conversation With Darryl Isaacs

Attorney Darryl Isaacs sat down to address questions for those who have been involved in a crash involving big rig trucks or other large commercial vehicles. Join us in this radio episode of “Ask The Hammer,” the podcast exploring the legal matters that matter most. Play the episode directly below.

While the law of vehicular control is generally applied in most big truck accidents, each legal counselor will be attempting to reduce the level of comparative negligence assigned to their client. All operators involved in an accident are assessed for comparative negligence, which calculates a percentage of fault for each accident victim. The state of Ohio uses pure comparative negligence doctrine, which means that anyone who is more than 50% at fault for an accident cannot recover damages for personal injuries. The area of comparative negligence is regularly where shipping businesses and their insurance providers attempt to reduce or deny an injury claim, even in the event of a fatality. This potential for denial is why it is imperative to have an effective and experienced attorney who will work diligently to stop the negligent respondents from shifting the blame for the accident to the injured victim. Your attorney from Isaacs and Isaacs understands how insurance company and shipping businesses use comparative negligence against the injured claimant and can hold the process of shifting blame to a minimum.

While the official accident report and the opinion of the accident reconstruction specialists are important, the maintenance records and potential driving citations against the company of the driver can be equally as important to your case. Big truck accidents are evaluated by a preponderance of the evidence instead of beyond a reasonable doubt as in criminal cases, and an experienced Ohio truck accident lawyer understands how to build a case against the negligent operator and their employer when they are lax in maintaining a vehicle according to the legal code for inspection and repair. In addition, erroneous hauling logs can be documented evidence that the company and driver were negligent in operation procedures, many times logging more driving hours than actually reported.

Defective Mechanical Products

Big truck accident lawyers understand that commercial vehicles are usually in service several hours per day every day and product malfunction is a common cause of accidents. Your Ohio truck accident lawyer at Isaacs and Isaacs can inspect all vehicles involved and determine if they have been recalled for defective vehicle parts, including passenger vehicles. Just because a big truck was a component of an accident does not mean the shipping company or driver is ultimately at fault, as defective auto parts are known to cause accidents when they malfunction. However, the potential for collecting from the commercial vehicle operators is still available as well as from the product developer, and your attorney is not required to prove negligence on the part of the manufacturer in order to win a claim because of strict liability legal applications.
