Trucking Accidents

Philadelphia Truck Accident Attorney

Have You Been Seriously Injured by a Commercial Truck?

Commercial trucks, such as 18-wheelers, are massive, and potentially deadly, machines. Every year throughout Pennsylvania, these vehicles cause numerous accidents and leave significant destruction of both property and person behind. In fact, every 16 seconds, an individual is either injured or killed while involved in a trucking accident.

Helping You Navigate the Laws & Legal System

With the sheer size and power of commercial trucks, even the most responsible passenger vehicle drivers may be vulnerable to accidents. If you or a loved one have suffered injury in one of these incidents, it is important to contact a knowledgeable Philadelphia truck accident attorney as soon as possible.

Truck accidents often involve complex factors, such as jackknifing, rollovers, and state/federal regulations for driver activities. At Piscitello Law, we have an in-depth understanding of the law and legal system, and can help you navigate the process as we fight for the compensation that you need to recover and move forward with your life.

Commercial trucking accidents are often caused by:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Intoxicated drivers
  • Vehicle defects
  • Improperly loaded or balanced trucks
  • Violation of speed limits or traffic laws
  • Jackknifing
  • Rollovers
  • Failure to see passenger vehicles while turning or changing lanes

Prepared to Stand Up to Big Insurance Companies

Many times, truck accidents involve big trucking companies who are backed by big insurance providers. The insurance companies are used to dealing with these types of situations, and often send representatives to confront vulnerable victims immediately following the accident. Unfortunately, insurance is a business, and their goal is to either deny responsibility on behalf of the driver, place the blame on you and deny your claim altogether, or settle for the lowest amount possible.

Don't let this happen to you. Our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer has extensive experience with commercial trucking accident cases and is fully prepared to battle the big insurance providers on your behalf. We fight tirelessly to help you obtain the maximum amount of compensation you may be legally entitled to.
