Truck accidents are uniquely dangerous, involving collisions between commercial vehicles and smaller passenger cars. This often means more serious injuries and expensive medical costs. Insurers and the responsible party’s representatives may do everything they can to downplay the severity of your injuries, making matters worse.

Together, economic and non-economic damages include:
This is only a brief overview of the damages you could recover. At TopDog Law, we have experience handling truck accidents and can determine which damages you qualify for.
Not all truck accidents will result in the same settlement amount. Each case is different, so the compensation you may be entitled to depends on the specifics of your case. The value of your case will hinge on several factors, including:
Our team is here to provide a calculation of your case’s value. This way, you won’t be going into settlement negotiations blind. Without a rough idea of what to expect, it’s easier for insurers or the responsible party’s representatives to lowball settlement offers.
You don’t need a law firm to tell you how difficult it is to lose a loved one in a preventable accident. Truck accident fatalities often involve non-commercial drivers because of the size difference between trucks and smaller passenger vehicles.
If you lost your loved one in a truck accident, we’ll treat your case with empathy and care. We want you to tell us your story so we can work towards making things right. The following wrongful death damages may be recoverable in your case in Pennsylvania:
In Pennsylvania, only the decedent’s personal representative may file a wrongful death case. If your loved one did not have a will before they passed, they may not have appointed a personal representative. Our team can assess your case and explain who is eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
You must determine who’s responsible for your injuries to win a truck accident case. This process involves linking negligent behavior to your crash.
In the context of a truck accident, negligence is any behavior that unnecessarily puts others at risk. Examples include:
These examples are general and may not apply to every truck accident case. Potentially responsible parties include:
You may want to file a lawsuit to recover compensation if an insurance settlement does not adequately repay you for all the losses you suffered. However, filing a lawsuit does not automatically mean you need to go to trial.
According to the American Bar Association (ABA), most personal injury cases like yours are settled outside the courtroom through insurance negotiations and out-of-court settlements.
The benefits of settling before trial are numerous:
However, sometimes going to court is necessary, particularly if insurers or the responsible party refuse to offer you what you deserve. In these cases, a Pennsylvania truck accident lawyer has your back. We aren’t afraid of taking the stand and fighting for what you deserve.
If you plan to file a lawsuit after your truck accident, you have a limited amount of time to get started. According to Pennsylvania law, you typically have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Similarly, you generally have two years to submit a wrongful death lawsuit under the same statute. Failure to file on time could mean you can no longer claim compensation, so you should get started as soon as possible.
Other benefits of getting a head start on your case include the following:
