Pennsylvania Truck Accident Attorneys
Have You Been Seriously Injured In A Truck Accident?
When an 18-wheeler truck accident occurs, serious injury or death is likely to occur. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking collision.
In fact, the FMCSA Administration revealed that 2010 data showed there was actually an increase in the number of fatal truck accidents.
- Of the approximately 415,000 police-reported crashes involving large trucks in 2015, there were 3,598 (1 percent) fatal crashes and 83,000 (20 percent) injury crashes.
Many attribute this to the current unsafe hours-of-service regulations and tired drivers. Even though tremendous strides have been made to make commercial trucks safer and to encourage safe driving, there is still a long way to go; catastrophic and even fatal accidents still occur every day in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Regardless of whether the victim is a professional truck driver or the occupant of a passenger vehicle, our Pennsylvania truck accident lawyers can help.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR
Your Truck Accident?
The most important stage in any trucking accident case is the initial research and investigation. This is when we compile evidence that demonstrates how your accident occurred and who is responsible for your injuries or the death of a family member. We work hard to sift through information that can be collected, including combing through logbooks and trucking company records and downloading data from electronic on-board recorders (EOBRs) that are quickly becoming an industry standard.
The following may ultimately be responsible for your accident:
- Truck Driver: Failing to conduct proper pre-trip inspections, driving too fast for conditions, making illegal or unsafe turns, failing to brake, driving drowsy, leaving loads unsecured, texting, using a cell phone behind the wheel, or driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs are all examples of reckless and negligent driving by big rig drivers.
- Trucking Company: Carriers expose their truckers, other motorists, and pedestrians to the risk of injury by failing to adopt and execute adequate safety plans, encouraging drivers to engage in dangerous driving, or hiring drivers without conducting proper background checks. Trucking companies may also be liable for failing to inspect and maintain the rigs in their fleet, including outfitting them with safety and emergency equipment.
- Truck Manufacturer: Even the safest trucker or fleet operator may be involved in a collision if the truck and its components are defective, including tires, brakes, gears, and lights.

Your case will be subjected to a statute of limitations. In Pennsylvania, that is most often two years from the injury or when the injury could have been reasonably discovered. That being said, these change. You should not hesitate to reach out to our firm so that we can help you determine next steps.
Even if you think that you me be partially to blame for the crash, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation. We can review your case and fight for the financial compensation that you deserve.
This depends on the circumstances of the case. For example, you may be able to sue the driver themselves if they were drunk, the truck company if they failed to follow proper hiring practices, or even a manufacturer of a part was defective.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be eligible to recover compensation for value of a damaged vehicle, medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, loss of companionship, and more.
