Columbus Trucking Accident Attorney
Helping You Recover After Catastrophic Injuries
Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles are massive, in terms of both weight and physical size. Because of this, trucking accidents cause more catastrophic injuries than any other traffic collisions. Any time they collide with an 18-wheeler or other large truck, passenger vehicle drivers have a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries, and accidents are much more likely to be fatal. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a trucking accident, get in touch with The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC immediately.

Determining the Liable Parties
Trucking accidents are complex because anyone who wishes to file a lawsuit must determine which liable party or parties are involved. Since most trucks on the road are there for commercial purposes, the blame cannot be placed on the truck driver alone.
Other liable parties may include:
- The employer of the truck driver – particularly if the company required the driver to work for too many hours, drive while fatigued, or drive under other unsafe conditions.
- The truck manufacturer – especially if the crash was caused by mechanical problems.
- The truck maintenance company – particularly if the truck was deemed safe but malfunctioned at the time of the accident.
- The shipping or loading company – especially if the truck’s improperly packed load caused or contributed to the accident.
At The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC, we provide each client we take on with a thorough investigation of their case. This helps us reveal the exact cause of the accident, along with any contributing factors. We even employ the services of accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to determine which parties are at fault in the trucking accident case.
Settlement or Trial?
When you trust our firm, you can rest assured that our Columbus truck accident lawyer won’t stop fighting until we have received the most favorable settlement on your behalf. In the event that we don’t reach a fair settlement with the other party, know that our firm has the skill and tenacity to litigate your case in front of a judge or jury.
This is also another place where our efforts to get to know you, your case, and your goals come in handy. If you simply want to collect the most lucrative settlement possible and move on, we will think twice about going to court, but if you want to hold the trucking company accountable and pursue large-scale justice, we will give further consideration to a trial.
