Semi-Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania

Hellam Twp, PA - Two Injured in Semi-Truck Crash at Cool Creek & Mt Pisgah RdsAn accident involving a large commercial vehicle, like a semi-truck, significantly differs from a typical auto accident. Accidents involving commercial trucks frequently induce severe injuries that frequently lead to enduring disabilities or fatalities. Motorcycles and passenger vehicles cannot safeguard themselves from the sheer bulk and weight of a large truck. Consequently, truck accident victims frequently endure severe emotional, physical, and financial repercussions. A truck accident attorney can assist in guaranteeing that the victims receive a justifiable settlement in the form of compensation for property damage, medical expenses, and/or wage loss.

Like many other states, Pennsylvania has a vast network of highways and interstates, contributing to its higher truck traffic and making these accidents a serious concern. Furthermore, the ample size and weight of semi-trucks or tractor-trailers mean disastrous consequences in a collision.

For all of the above reasons, you need to know your legal rights if you or a loved one was hurt in a truck accident in Pennsylvania. You have to deal with more than just your regular vehicle insurance company while seeking compensation for injuries you suffered in a truck collision. For instance, a trucking contractor’s primary goals are to minimize responsibility for accidents involving their drivers and maximize profits.
