Columbus Attorneys for Truck Accident Victims
Helping People Who Have Been Hurt in Trucking Accidents
An accident involving a truck almost always involves catastrophic injury or death, because of the impact of a large, heavy object hitting a much smaller one. If a car collides with a truck, it is not uncommon for the trucker to walk away while the driver of the car is wounded for life.
Buchanan Law Firm, PC has represented people who have been injured in trucking accidents as well as truckers who have been hurt on the job. One of our clients was a trucker who was carrying a load that was improperly packed by another organization. When he opened the door of the truck, the load had shifted and it fell on him. We were able to successfully bring a claim for the trucker’s injuries against the organization that had packed the load.
People who have been severely injured in trucking accidents frequently cannot return to work and require specialized equipment to live a decent quality of life. The catastrophic injuries that commonly result because of the mass of the truck can be life-changing. We help people who have been seriously injured in truck accidents get the compensation they need to pay for medical bills, continuing treatment and lost wages.
