Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers and passenger cars can sometimes be disastrous. Understanding what causes 18-wheeler wrecks in Pennsylvania or New Jersey often requires a qualified attorney who knows how to investigate truck companies.
If you or a loved one was injured in a semi truck accident, you deserve a skilled attorney at your side who can advocate for your rights. The attorneys at Flager & Yockey, P.C. are not afraid to challenge the insurance companies. We will make sure your financial compensation is sufficient to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages. We're ready to stand up for you and defend your rights.
As the operator of the smaller automobile, you are more vulnerable to injury or death in an accident than the driver of a large truck, whether it's a tanker truck, delivery truck or van, or any other large commercial vehicle.
A typical fully loaded, large commercial truck can weigh nearly 30 times more than an average passenger car. In 2008, there were 192 fatal crashes in Pennsylvania and 47 fatal crashes in New Jersey involving large trucks, according to the National Transportation Highway Safety Administration's Fatal Analysis Reporting System.
Motorists expect 18-wheeler drivers to operate their rigs professionally and safely, whether they're traveling on rural roads or on the Pennsylvania Turkpike, New Jersey Turnpike or I-95. Tractor-trailer truck drivers are required to carry more insurance coverage and meet higher safety standards, including many federal regulations that other vehicles do not have to meet. Violation of these standards may impose additional liability on the truck.
Even truck accidents involving a smaller commercial vehicle, such as a pickup truck or another passenger vehicle operating commercially, on the major interstates and roads in Pennsylvania and New Jersey can lead to serious injuries.
Flager & Yockey, P.C. helps clients by conducting a thorough investigation of the driving records, background checks, hiring practices, driver logs and truck maintenance to determine the source of negligence. We have the resources and the experience to undercover the truth and any factors which may have resulted in the accident. We're on your side.
