We Thoroughly Investigate Truck Accidents
The trucking industry is heavily regulated for good reason. An 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and the impact of a large truck can be catastrophic. For these reasons, the trucking industry is subject to strict laws and regulations that do not apply to smaller vehicles. Our attorneys are intimately familiar with these regulations. We know how to identify when a trucking company or a truck driver has committed a violation – and we how to hold the negligent parties accountable. Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Failure to properly maintain the truck or the trailer
- Hours-of-service violations, resulting in truck driver fatigue
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Allowing untrained drivers to get behind the wheel
- Negligent hiring by the trucking company
Unsafe trucks and truck drivers cause accidents on busy local highways such as the Pennsylvania Turnpike, I-95, US-1 and Street Road. If you have been in an accident involving a truck, we can help.
Coordinating Insurance Coverage
In terms of vehicle insurance, crashes involving big rigs and tractor-trailers are complex legal matters, since many trucks are covered by the policies issued by multiple insurance companies, and the trucks are purchased by different parties. Our personal injury lawyers are experienced at sorting out the different policies and carefully investigating the facts of each case to determine exactly who is liable for your damages and injuries.
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, we understand that no amount of money can make up for your loss. However, we will work hard to hold the right parties accountable for their actions through a wrongful death claim.
