Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Trucking Accidents

Because of their huge size, thousands of individuals and families suffer death and serious injury at the hands of large commercial vehicles.

Large truck liability cases are more complex than simple automobile collision cases. There are highly technical state and federal regulations applicable to motor carriers and commercial vehicles which can form a legal basis for liability. The sheer size and physics of how these huge rigs operate make handling these cases unique. Deficiencies in equipment maintenance and inspection along with frequent breaches of duty in selection, retention and training of professional truck drivers, if proven, can greatly enhance the value of a claim. Proof of failure by trucking company or fleet management to implement and enforce a safety program can substantially increase the value of what might appear to be an ordinary case.

The root cause of a large truck catastrophe may not be evident at first glance. Proper handling requires a thorough investigation of the scene, vehicles involved, personnel involved, and careful review of applicable laws and regulations. Maximizing a recovery can require focusing the proof more on the management's failures than the truck driver's omissions. This can only occur if the case is properly investigated, developed and presented.

The simple fact is that when tractor trailer or large truck catastrophic occur they often result in death, brain damage, paralysis or other catastrophic injury. Regrettably, the insurance coverage available or assets of the company can be inadequate to fully compensate the victim or his/her family in a tragic case. In those circumstances, it is important to investigate other areas of legal responsibility such as the liability of the shipper, vehicle manufacturer or other related entities.
