Ohio Truck Accident Lawyer
Ohio saw nearly 22,000 injury crashes involving trucks and 340 people died in semi- and other truck-related crashes in 2010. Combined, that’s a good 3,000 more than the population of Painesville.
It’s not easy taking on a large trucking company after being injured in a semi/trucking accident. These companies have experienced defense attorneys on their payrolls and their insurance carriers shell out big bucks to their lawyers to ensure they pay as little as possible to people injured in accidents with their trucks.
The Ohio truck accident attorneys at Elk & Elk prepare all cases for trial, so if a settlement isn’t fair, we won’t accept it. That kind of reputation goes a long way. To see for yourself, call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online. We’re available 24/7/365.

Handling the Most Complex Trucking Cases in Ohio
Operating commercial vehicles safely takes training, practice, skill, patience and attention. These big rigs are a necessary part of our nation’s transportation system, which most often runs safely.
But even the slightest slip-up behind the wheel of a big rig – or by a motorist on the road around it – can quickly balloon to monstrous proportions and seriously injure anyone who’s in the wrong place at the wrong time.
That’s why, when you’ve been involved in a commercial vehicle mishap, you need a law firm with the resources and the knowledge to dissect even the most complicated chain of events leading to a car accident or commercial vehicle wreck.
Our team of attorneys, paralegals, accident reconstruction specialists, doctors, nurses, accountants, economists and other experts has the kind of experience you want on your side when navigating the rough roads of commercial vehicle accident litigation.
Seasoned Professionals Search for the Truth
With our seasoned truck accident reconstruction staff at the ready, we study every aspect of the scene:
- The vehicles involved
- Driver qualifications
- Whether the driver had adequate training
- The environmental conditions at the time of the wreck
- Maintenance records, company licenses and even computer re-enactments of the actual events
- These can help eliminate any gray areas and get to the truth, which, in turn, gets you the compensation you deserve to help you put your life back on track.
We can help you recover from truck accident cases that are caused by:
- Swinging turns
- Inability to brake
- Tire blowouts
- Inadequate truck driver training
- Overloaded trucks
- Many other factors

Semi, tractor-trailer, stake bed, box truck, hauler, panel truck, bobtail, plow or 18-wheeler: Whatever the names, they’re large trucks and they can be tough to share the road with at times. These commercial vehicles, especially those that pull trailers, are harder to maneuver, require increased stopping distance and take longer to pull out than most every other type of motor vehicle on the road. If you have been injured, contact our experienced Ohio truck accident lawyers at Elk & Elk today.
