Semi Trucks are involved in almost 20,000 accidents a year in Ohio. Tractor-Trailers can weigh upwards of 80,000lbs, and all this weight leads to bad accidents.
Semi Truck accidents are different from other types of accidents because both the State of Ohio and the Federal government recognize the dangers they pose, and have special rules that govern how and when a Semi can operate on our roads. Fatigued drivers, worn out brakes and equipment, or unsecured loads can all lead to tragedy. When it does, the law allows for special penalties against the Truck companies and drivers that break the rules.
