Serious Injuries In Truck Accidents Require Serious Representation

An out-of-control semitruck can wreak havoc on any roadway and with the motorists who travel on it. The big rig may cross medians, crashing into other motor vehicles; jackknife and spill its load — chemicals, animals and retail items; or even cause an explosion that may force the evacuation of a community.

In these scenarios, lives may be at stake, catastrophic injuries may occur, and the insurance companies of trucking companies may attempt to deny your claim. Being injured in a truck accident may leave an indelible effect on you. Paralysis, brain trauma and broken bones are just some of the injuries that you may face. You and your family should not have to face an uphill battle alone when it comes to physical and financial recovery. We will represent you and secure the compensation you deserve, especially if there’s negligence involved. Our dedicated, aggressive and passionate attorneys at Bassi, Vreeland & Associates, P.C., in southwestern Pennsylvania, will fight for you.

Many Preventable Factors Lead To Truck Accidents

Semitrucks travel in every direction on Pennsylvania roads. Weighing several tons, they haul freight throughout the country, and may be considered the original “monster” trucks. But, sometimes, accidents occur. Truck drivers often work long hours with little rest, trying to meet almost impossible deadlines set by employers. This can lead to an on-the-road disaster. A number of factors may lead to a truck accident. The truck drivers may be:

  • Speeding to get to their next destination on time
  • Suffering from exhaustion, causing them to doze off behind the wheel
  • Relying on alcohol or drugs
  • Carrying unbalanced loads
  • Driving poorly maintained vehicles, leading to equipment failure

Often these severe accidents point to negligence, which could be on the part of the truck driver, trucking company as well as the companies that loaded, inspected and maintained the semitrucks. Regardless, we will make sure to represent you to the best of our abilities. A catastrophic injury from a truck accident can lead to mounting medical bills and the inability to work.
