Protecting victim rights after truck accidents

Semi trucks play an important role in the nation’s economy, but these large vehicles can pose a danger to innocent motorists. Truck drivers have a special responsibility to drive safely and remain vigilant behind the wheel, but these drivers are often too tired to drive safely and/or ate trans;porting unbalanced loads that can lead to accidents. When truck accidents occur, victims have every right to protect their legal rights.

There is always an increased risk for damage and injury when a truck accident occurs. Often, the smaller vehicle bears the burden for most of the damage, and victims may be left frustrated by manipulative tactics of an insurance or trucking company. Pennsylvania truck accident victims always have the right to pursue claims for monetary damages when a negligent truck driver or trucking company causes  serious harm. 

Some trucking companies are quick to deny their role in an accident, but a thorough investigation can determine the underlying causes. It is possible that a driver and/or company officials falsified log books to conceal the fact that the driver was behind the wheel for too long or was under pressure to deliver a load by a certain time. Speeding and distraction are major problems for semi truck drivers, just as they are for other motorists. By determining what caused an accident, a lawyer can assist in determining what options for compensation are available.

We know how to confront trucking companies and hold them accountable for unsafe practices. When innocent Pennsylvania motorists are harmed in truck accidents, we step in and protect their rights by conducting an investigation and building a focused and persuasive injury claim.
