Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents
Too many truck drivers take shortcuts on the road. Truckers drive long hours and are under pressure by their employer to finish their routes by any means necessary. When you're behind the wheel of a multi-ton 18-wheeler, though, the slightest mistake puts other drivers in extreme danger. Under the law, a trucking company can be held liable for driver negligence, improper maintenance, unsafe loads and other federal and state violations.

Commercial Trucks Not Large In Size But With A Large Insurance Policy
The difference in size of cash settlements in commercial truck cases are potentially much larger than auto to auto accidents generally for one reason: the size of the policy of insurance. Your personal auto policy is sometimes as low as the Eastern Pennsylvania state mandatory minimum limits require of $15,000, however, a commercial vehicle, such as a company van, pick-up, tow truck, etc., usually carries policies of insurance coverage with much higher limits and you can be fairly and fully compensated when the driver is negligent.
You do not have to retain a firm in Eastern Pennsylvania if the accident occurs in Eastern Pennsylvania. You need to retain a firm that specializes in truck accidents. Often times, firms from other states, such as ours, are retained because of their experience and knowledge
