Representing Victims from Chester County to Cape May County
We see them all the time on the highways and major roads. They are intimidating and loud. When we see them, we try to get away from them. What are they? Trucks. We’re talking 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor trailers, dump trucks and even cement trucks. These trucks are bigger and smaller vehicles can easily get into their blind spots. Accidents often cause devastating injuries, since an SUV, pickup truck or a sedan doesn’t stand a chance against the weight and impact of these types of trucks.
If you are injured in a truck accident, you should contact a seasoned truck accident lawyer. This lawyer will know how to handle your particular case, since he or she knows the state and federal regulations for commercial trucking as well as uncover who is liable, since there can be multiple parties involved. When you hire a Saffren & Weinberg attorney, he or she will do a thorough investigation to get you the settlement you deserve, including:
- using the latest software application for accident reconstruction analysis.
- collecting evidence (i.e. black box data) as soon as possible, since it is very easy for evidence to disappear.
- searching for any violation of the federal motor carrier safety regulation.
Damages We’ll Recover for You
Don’t let the big trucking companies bully you into a settlement they think your claim is worth. Our legal team will protect your rights and make sure you are taken care of before, during and after the trial. We will get compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain & suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Wrongful death
Common Types of Trucking Accidents
Truck accidents happen all the time on the major routes in our area, such as Routes 422, 202, 76, 73 and 295 as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the Garden State Parkway. When a truck accident happens, it affects everyone, from the victims and witnesses to commuters stuck in their cars and the cleanup crews. The most common types of accidents are:
- Tire blowout
- Blind spot
- Lost load
- Head on
Depending on the impact, the truck accident injuries include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries and traumatic brain injuries.
What Causes a Truck Accident?
Many drivers believe trucking accidents are caused by truckers staying on the road too long in order to make their deadlines. However, there are numerous reasons:
- Loss of Control
- Mechanical Failure
- Other Drivers
- Reckless Driving
- Inexperienced Drivers
- Shifting Cargo
- Lane Drifting
- Road Hazards
No matter the reason for the accident, if you sustained injuries from a trucking accident, you may be entitled to compensation. While going up against a large trucking company might seem intimidating, our lawyers are here to help you receive the settlement you deserve.
