A tractor trailer recently crashed on the treacherous “Dead Man’s Curve” in Cleveland. According to The Plain Dealer, this was the 63rd accident to occur in the curve since 2009.
The Cleveland, Ohio truck accident happened on July 17 as the truck traveled eastbound along the road. The driver failed to slow to the posted 35 mph speed limit and the truck began to tip. Moments later, the load of coils strapped to the flatbed trailer attached to the truck spilled across the highway.
The Ohio Department of Public Safety shows that at least 24 individuals have suffered serious injuries due to crashes at the site in the last three years.
In an effort to fix the problem, the city installed rumble strips and larger speed limit signs. Also, the speed limit has been lowered at the location; however, many believe accidents will continue to occur until a $301 million overhaul of the dangerous curve in the road is completed.
The Cleveland, Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers with Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy say that truckers must abide by a more stringent set of regulations than drivers of private vehicles when traveling on America’s highways. Failure to follow these rules could be considered negligent if an accident occurred. That is why the firm would encourage anyone who has been injured in an accident with a commercial vehicle to contact an experienced attorney immediately to discuss your legal options.
