ohio Truck Brake Failure Accident Lawyer
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA) mandates truck maintenance requirements on all trucks carrying freight on our country’s roads and highways. No matter how experienced, skilled or trained a professional truck driver may be, controlling an 80,000 lb. cab and trailer when the brakes or other mechanical systems fail is impossible, once the forces of physics and nature take over.
If you were injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler truck on a road in Ohio, the cause may have been related to brake failure or other maintenance issues. Talk to an experienced Ohio truck accident injury and wrongful death attorney at Seaman & Associates before you talk to a truck company representative about a settlement. We have extensive experience successfully helping Ohio truck accident victims seek the full and fair compensation they are entitled to for damages related to a truck accident.
We Have the Resources to Investigate and Prepare the Strongest Case Possible
Truck brake failure isn’t something the truck company will admit to. In fact, it will often claim evidence immediately following the wreck, and won’t release it for legal purposes. We work with independent truck accident reconstruction specialists to investigate the facts about the causes and results of your accident. If brake failure or other issues related to insufficient truck maintenance were the cause of your accident and injuries, we will find out — and prove it.
We are proud of our record of insurance settlements and jury verdicts in Ohio truck accident cases resulting from:
- Truck brake failure, steering failure, insufficient maintenance
- Trailer decoupling, jackknife, rollover and trailer disconnect accidents
- Overloaded trailer
- Truck driver error in emergency situations or bad weather conditions
- Truck driver asleep at the wheel, over_tired, truck driver fatigue
- Speeding, reckless driving, aggressive driving
- Truck driver DUI
- Distracted truck driver, texting while driving, talking on cell phone
