Pittsburgh Truck Accidents Attorney
Tractor Trailer Truck accidents often result in serious personal injuries or death. The causes of Tractor Trailer crashes can range from driver negligence, inadequate security, dangerous roadways, weather conditions, negligent hiring, negligent training, defective products, and improper maintenance.
Some Trucks are owned and operated by government entities and others are owned and operated by private companies. Claims for damages against a public entity or governmental entity are complex and have strict time limitations. In Pennsylvania, that time frame may be as little as six (6) months. The laws are complex and vary greatly depending upon the circumstances surrounding the accident. If you have been injured as the result of a Tractor Trailer accident in Pennsylvania, either as a pedestrian or driver or passenger of another vehicle involved in the accident, you may be able to pursue legal action against the Tractor Trailer company to recover your damages.
If you were a pedestrian or a driver or passenger in a vehicle that was involved in a Tractor Trailer accident, the truck company, whether public or private, owes you a duty of care associated with being a common carrier. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, property damage and car repairs, lost wages, pain and suffering, impairment, permanent injury, and disfigurement.
