Berger and Green Takes on the Trucking Company and the Insurer
When our clients get injured, we make sure that every liable party pays the damages they deserve. In the case of a truck accident, the most common responsible parties are the truck driver and the trucking company. However, we often focus on the trucking company, given that big companies have a greater ability than individual drivers to pay the damages they owe.
Vicarious Liability in Pennsylvania
Berger and Green is able to go after trucking companies for accidents caused by their drivers because of vicarious liability laws in Pennsylvania. These laws hold employers financially liable for injuries caused by their workers on the job.
Most truck drivers are either W-2 employees or 1099 contractors (also known as owner-operators) working for a specific trucking or shipping outfit. We examine the relationship between the truck driver who hit you and their employer, and we use the information we find to pursue the company aggressively. We also investigate to make sure that the truck driver was following the proper rules and regulations imposed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
Insurance Company Negotiations
No matter who was responsible for your truck accident injuries, chances are good that at least some of the compensation you receive will come from the insurance company.
Without someone on your side who is skilled and experienced at insurance company negotiations, you may end up getting stuck with a settlement that is less than you deserve and does not cover all of your economic and noneconomic losses.
At Berger and Green, our attorneys have been taking on the insurance companies for more than 40 years. We know how to retain the upper hand and get you the money you deserve. To find out more, and to set up a free case evaluation, call us at 412-661-1400.
Jury Trial Experience
Berger and Green has a long track record of winning substantial jury awards for injured clients. We will not hesitate to take your case before a jury if the responsible party and their insurer do not agree to compensate you fairly.
At Berger and Green, our attorneys are all about client service. We are not happy unless you are happy with us. We understand the physical and emotional pain you are undoubtedly experiencing in the wake of your truck accident. The last thing we want is for the stress from everything you have to get done post-accident to amplify the pain you are already feeling. That is why we handle as much as we can on your behalf. We want that stress on our shoulders, not yours so that you can focus on getting better.
