Truck Accidents

Serious injury and damages can occur when a semi-truck is involved in an accident. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries and damages due to the negligence of a truck driver and/or their employer, you need a lawyer that’s experienced with truck accident cases.

Our Hamilton law firm is here to represent the needs of Ohio and Northern Kentucky residents. Discover your options and take control of your situation today.

Shipping and logistics is one of the most significant industries in our country, utilizing massive tractor-trailers to haul the goods and supplies we all rely on. Unfortunately, these trucks are not always handled with the responsibility they demand. Because of the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, they can cause significant damages, including death, when they are involved in a collision.

Trucking companies and drivers are required to comply with strict state and federal regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. When these standards aren’t met, it’s only a matter of time until an accident occurs.

When someone has been injured by a semi-truck, it’s important that they speak to a truck accident lawyer as soon as they’re able to. Generally, trucking companies have accident response departments and large legal teams focused on defending against injury claims. These cases quickly become much more complicated than a standard car accident. That’s why it’s critical to have experienced representation to ensured you receive what you are owed.

The Richards Firm was founded to make the legal system more accessible for those involved in a personal injury or wrongful death situation. For a truck accident lawyer in Hamilton, Cincinnati, and Northern Kentucky, contact The Richards Firm today!

Causes of Trucking Accidents in Ohio & Kentucky

In the Southwestern Ohio and Northern Kentucky area, we experience the convergence of numerous major highways such as I-75, I-71, I-74, I-275, and I-70. Our region is one of the major transportation hubs in the entire United States, leaving residents exposed to many dangerous and deadly situations:  

  • Spilled loads 
  • Mechanical failure 
  • Excessive speed 
  • Tiredness or lack of sleep  
  • Driving in unsafe weather conditions 
  • Improperly addressing blind spots 
  • Failing to leave sufficient space between vehicles 
  • Aggressive driving while trying to meet delivery deadlines 
  • And more. 

While these types of incidents may happen frequently, they should never be treated as common. When a truck causes an accident, they are legally responsible for damages that result from their actions.
