Commercial Truck Accident Lawyers in Columbus
Helping victims of Ohio tractor-trailer wrecks
The many trucks that dot Ohio highways can create dangerous conditions for drivers who share the road. During a commercial truck collision, the heavy weight and large size of a tractor-trailer often causes serious injuries to the passengers in much lighter, smaller cars.
Founded in 1981, Lawrence A. Riehl Law Offices aggressively represents Ohio plaintiffs in catastrophic injuries and wrongful death lawsuits. Our Columbus trucking accident attorneys pursue the highest possible compensation available for injuries sustained as a result of a big-rig wreck.
Fighting big corporations and insurance companies
Big corporations have the resources to pay you the compensation you deserve. They also have the means to strategically build a defense. With their insurance carriers at their side, large companies typically deny liability, to the detriment of injured victims.
Our team thoroughly investigates the causes of your accident — often relying on experts, such as accident reconstructionists, engineers and mechanics — and reviews police reports, photographs and doctors’ records to develop a firm case theory. We then aggressively pursue all parties responsible for the 18-wheeler accident that caused your injuries — including owners and lessees of the tractor-trailer, vehicle and motor parts manufacturers, mechanics and drivers.
Based on the facts of your case, our skilled litigation attorneys may seek compensation for the negligent actions that resulted in:
- Brake failure
- Driver’s carelessness
- Driver’s fatigue or exhaustion
- Driver’s intoxication
- Unsecured or unbalanced load
- Tire blowout
- Vehicle or parts defect
