The Increased Risk of Injury to Vehicle Occupants in Truck Collisions
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a large truck can weigh up to 30 times as much as your passenger vehicle. This significant difference in size can mean the truck requires a greater stopping distance. It can also mean vehicle occupants are more likely to sustain serious or fatal injuries.
IIHS research for 2020 cites the following:
- 4,014 truck accident fatalities
- 68% of fatalities were vehicle occupants
Every truck accident is a unique event with its own causes and contributing factors. If negligence played a role in your truck accident, we will help you seek financial recovery.
How We Identify Negligence and Potentially Liable Parties
After a truck accident, you could have a case against the truck driver if their actions caused the collision or if they are an owner/operator. Other responsible parties can include the trucking company or the manufacturer of the truck or its parts. The evidence we collect to identify the at-fault party includes:
- Accident report
- Photos and video
- Witness statements
- Driver training history
- Hours-of-service logs
- Truck maintenance records
We will not burden you or your family with evidence collection. We also obtain your employment records, medical bills, and vehicle repair or replacement estimates. This evidence documents the monetary value of your compensation request.

How State-Mandated Time Limits Impact Your Pennsylvania Case
Pa. C.S.A. § 5524 generally entitles you to two years to file a lawsuit if your case cannot be resolved with an insurance settlement. In most cases, personal injury lawsuits do not go to court. Our law firm protects your right to file your lawsuit, if necessary, by ensuring it is filed on time. Accordingly, the statutory clock starts running:
- On the date of the accident in your personal injury case
- On the date of the accident in your family’s survival action
- On the date of a loved one’s demise in your wrongful death case
Filing your case on time is a critical part of your case. It is also a complicated one since the age of injured victims and certain actions taken by the at-fault party can cause it to fluctuate. The best way to ensure your lawsuit meets the applicable statute of limitations is to let our legal team take care of it for you. With sufficient notice, we can ensure your lawsuit is filed within the allotted time.
