We Identify the Responsible Parties and Go After Them
Truck accident liability is often more complex than car accident liability. For one thing, there are more parties who may be financially liable for your injuries. In addition to the driver, there is the trucking company, shipping company, truck manufacturer, and others who may bear liability. Berger and Green will investigate your accident and identify all potentially liable parties. If any of them played a part in your injuries, understand that we will pursue your compensation from them.
More Than One Party Could be Liable for Your Injuries
Under Pennsylvania law, employers can be held liable when their employees injure other parties on the job due to negligent behavior. Trucking companies are prime targets of this law due to the nature of the trucking business and the size and destructive capacity of the vehicles they operate.
If a truck driver injured you, we will pursue their employer under Pennsylvania’s vicarious liability law and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Another party that is integral to any truck accident injury claim is the insurance company. Making matters even more complex, every party involved is likely covered by an insurance policy. This includes the truck driver, the trucking company, the shipping company, and anyone else who may have contributed to your injury. Because these parties are insured, it is not them but the insurance company that will likely pay for your damages.
For that reason, you need a lawyer who can deal with insurance companies. At Berger and Green, we have spent many years taking on insurance companies and making sure our clients get paid what they deserve. To speak to a truck accident lawyer in Aliquippa, PA with the Berger and Green team, call (412) 661-1400 today.
If They Do Not Agree to Pay
If the responsible party or parties and their insurance companies do not agree to fair compensation out of court, the next step is to file a lawsuit and take your case before a jury. At Berger and Green, our Aliquippa truck accident lawyers have jury trial experience and a track record of winning damages in court. We will not hesitate to go before a jury to get you what you deserve.

The Compensation You Deserve
Berger and Green fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve for your truck accident injuries. Our attorneys seek not only economic damages, which refer to actual monetary losses, but also noneconomic damages, meaning losses that we cannot quantify in dollar terms.
Your settlement or award may include compensation for the following and more:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional anguish
The Statute of Limitations
Per PA § 5524’s statute of limitations, truck accident victims generally have two years to take legal action for their injuries. However, this timeline may be shorter or longer based on a variety of factors. The only way to know for sure how long you have to file a claim is to let a lawyer evaluate your case. Berger and Green will do that for free, with no risk or obligation.
If necessary, our attorneys can file a quick lawsuit to avoid having the statute of limitations expire on your claim. To set up your free consultation today, call us at (412) 661-1400.
