Investigating Trucking Companies

A Knowledgeable Truck Accident Lawyer Who Knows How To Investigate Trucking Companies

Investigating a Columbus personal injury truck accident is much more complex than getting to the bottom of an average traffic accident. Trucking companies are subject to entirely different sets of rules under federal, state and local laws. Truck drivers are required to have special licenses and training. The interests of the trucking company, driver, the vehicle's manufacturer and their various insurance companies are all at stake. If you're already dealing with serious injuries from a Central Ohio truck accident, you're in no shape - physically, emotionally or mentally - for the complex task of handling the case on your own. The Smith Law Office knows how to protect your rights and to secure fair financial compensation while you focus on getting your life back on track.

Columbus truck accident attorney Scott Elliot Smith is familiar with the rules and inner workings of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which oversees trucking companies on behalf of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The agency was established in 2000 with the mission "to reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities involving large trucks and buses." FMCSA can be a valuable resource for researching trucking company safety records to establish a pattern of questionable behavior regarding the safety of their fleets and drivers - if you know how to use it. Backed by these official government documents and his thirty-plus years of experience, Scott Elliot Smith can build a solid legal case to secure justice and fair financial compensation for his clients.

Trucking company negligence can lead to severe injuries, from broken bones to spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. With so much at stake, it's critical to arrange a consultation with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Columbus if you or a loved one was injured or you lost a loved one in an accident.
