Philadelphia Truck Accident Lawyer

The size and weight of a commercial eighteen-wheeler semi-truck make truck accidents more devastating and complex than a regular car accident. There is also more at stake because individuals injured in truck accidents are often left more seriously injured.

Sometimes, truck accident victims can receive large compensation or settlements from the trucking company. Contact the skilled truck accident lawyers at TopDog Law or CALL (800) 215-7211 to tell us your story & discuss your options. You will speak to a live representative 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.

Hiring the Right Truck Accident Attorney is Important. How to Get Maximum Compensation from the Trucking Company.

Importantly, large truck companies pay a lot of money to investigators, adjusters, and lawyers to pay injured victims as little compensation as possible. That is why you can’t just hire any lawyer to represent you particularly in a complex truck accident where you are asserting the truck was improperly maintained or the trucker was fatigued at the time of the accident.

The truck accident attorneys at TopDog Law represent drivers, truckers, bikers, passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians hurt in an accident involving a commercial semi-truck, such as a tractor trailer. Recently, tractor trailer accidents have led to serious injuries on the Pennsylvania Turnpike as well as other portions of Interstate 95, Interstate 76, Route 22, Interstate 78, and Interstate 80. In the event of a fatality caused by a truck accident, you need a wrongful death lawyer who understands the issues of a major truck accident.

Whether you or a loved one was killed or injured by a semi-truck, tractor trailer, 18-wheeler truck, coal truck, or delivery truck in Pennsylvania, the expert attorneys at TopDog Law will help you get maximum compensation. Fill out the simple form submission below or call us at (800) 215-7211 to speak to an attorney.

What are the Causes of a Semi Truck Accident? Will I Win My Case?

In Pennsylvania, there are specific regulations relating to the weight and size limit of trucks and the freight being carried. In addition, there are specific regulations regarding the hours a trucker may be on the road per day.

Nevertheless, trucking companies fail to consistently abide by these regulations. Trucking companies have consistently been found liable for trucking accidents resulting from the following:

  • Improper Maintenance
  • Trucker fatigue
  • Truck Company Negligence
  • Distracted truck driving
  • Overweight Trailers
  • Unsecured loads
  • Transport of Hazardous Materials

Far too frequently, trucking companies fail to maintain their vehicles or force truckers to meet unreasonable deadlines resulting in the trucker exceeding hourly regulations. If you suspect the truck involved in the accident was not properly maintained or the trucker was fatigued, you should contact the truck accident attorneys at TopDog Law immediately. Many times, however, you will not know enough information. That is why if you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident, it is critical to contact a skilled attorney who will conduct a thorough investigation.
