Pennsylvania Tractor Trailer Wreck Attorneys
Were you seriously injured in an accident that involved a large commercial truck? Are you worried about getting all of the money you are entitled to from the insurance company? The Pennsylvania truck accident attorneys at Berger and Green can help you go after what's yours!
An accident involving a commercial truck such as an 18-wheeler, semi tanker, coal truck, oil tanker or freight carrier can be an extremely serious accident because commercial trucks are significantly longer, larger and heavier than passenger vehicles and are difficult to control. The average automobile weighs about 5,000 pounds; commercial semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when loaded with cargo. In many cases, the truck may be carrying freight that is highly flammable or hazardous. When a commercial truck is on the road, other drivers need to be aware of the truck's limitations and its blind spots.
However, careless driving on the part of truck drivers due to inadequate training or a schedule that requires them to drive long distances for long periods of time is a frequent cause of serious accidents. According to a 2004 study by the National Highway Safety Association, approximately 75% of all large trucks involved in fatal crashes throughout the United States collided with other vehicles. In fact, Pennsylvania is among the top five states with large numbers of fatal truck accidents.
