Fighting for Victims Injured throughout Pennsylvania & New Jersey
Thousands and thousands of large trucks hit the highways everyday across the country. Motor vehicle accidents involving these large commercial trucks, which are also known as 18-wheelers, semis, big rigs and tractor-trailers, frequently result in devastating injuries or fatalities. At Geoffrey B. Gompers & Associates, our Philadelphia truck accident lawyers help individuals and their families who have been injured or killed in all types of trucking accidents.
Common Causes of Trucking Accidents
Trucking accidents often involve negligence on the part of the driver, the trucking company or both, as well as the manufacturer of the truck and in some cases even the government. Some of the common causes often associated with trucking accidents include: distracted driving such as using a cell phone, truck driver fatigue, operator inexperience, mechanical failures, driving under the influence, recklessness, speeding, improper or unsecured loading, and rollovers. In addition, roadways, whether they are federal, state or local, may not be properly maintained or designed. In many cases, vehicle defects are found to have caused a trucking accident, including malfunctions of tires, brakes, steering systems, power train, or trailers.
Commercial truck accidents often result in serious injuries or death. More often than not, the victims who are injured face an extensive and painful recovery period. Catastrophic and debilitating injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and paralysis can lead to a future of medical treatments and therapies. Victims are left with extensive medical bills, lost wages and long-term disabilities, mental anguish and persistent pain. A victim’s life as well as their families’ lives can be completely changed forever.
