Helping Victims Get What They Need After A Truck Accident

At The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, our truck accident lawyers understand the dangers posed by commercial trucks, and the potential for life-altering injuries to occur. Regardless of the size of your own vehicle, a collision with a semitruck is likely to result in catastrophic injuries.

We Understand The Dangers Of Trucks

The size, shape and weight of most semi-trucks makes them particularly hazardous to other motorists. Large semi-trucks, including 18-wheelers, leave truck drivers with large blind spots that can easily conceal smaller vehicles such as passenger vehicles and motorcycles.

A truck's weight and size creates another danger: serious rear-end collisions. Fully loaded semi-trucks require extremely long stopping distances. If a truck driver must brake quickly, it is possible they will not be able to stop in time, causing a fatal collision.

For 20 years, attorneys Kevin Attkisson, Matthew Jewson and Richard Gabelman have represented victims of trucking accidents in the Dayton area and elsewhere in Ohio. We have experience conveying the pain and suffering to a jury that may have been caused by:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver intoxication
  • Driver inattention or confusion
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Truck maintenance and part failure
  • Speeding
  • Driver or company negligence

Well-Versed In The Impact Of Trucking Accidents

Every trucking accident is different, and the injuries that correspond with these accidents vary in range of severity. Whether your injury is minor or major, we can help you pursue compensation.

Common semi tractor-trailer injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Severed or amputated limbs
  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Road rash
  • Spinal cord injuries

Catastrophic injuries can place a burden on families as the associated costs pile up over time. The potential cost of hospital bills, rehabilitation, medical care and lost wages due to these injuries should be taken into consideration when seeking compensation.

Need to know if your settlement is fair? We can review the settlement offer made by the trucking company's insurance company to determine if the full extent of your financial burden is being addressed.
