Truck Accident Attorney - State College, Pennsylvania
If you have been injured in an accident involving a truck, whether an 18-wheeler, a delivery van, or dump truck, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Our skilled truck accident lawyers at Goodall & Yurchak can analyze your case and advise you about filing a claim for injuries received in a truck accident.
Truck accidents are more likely than car crashes to result in serious and sometimes permanent injuries. Trucking insurance companies are interested only in limiting their own liability and financial damages, and rarely offer any compensation. Consequently, claims and lawsuits are usually expensive and difficult for all involved. The trucking or insurance company may offer to settle a claim for a very small amount of money. To discuss your case with an experienced lawyer, contact an experienced truck accident attorney at Goodall & Yurchak. They will help you understand your options.
A semi crash frequently involves multiple vehicles, as chain reaction collisions can result from a single truck jack-knifed across the highway. Usually, other vehicles involved in chain reaction crashes are cars. Statistics show that passengers and drivers in cars involved in accidents with tractor-trailers are more likely than the truck driver to sustain serious, permanent, or fatal injuries. Even if the truck is small, it is still larger than your car. You deserve compensation, whether you have been injured in a step-van, gravel truck, or 18-wheeler accident.
Pennsylvania Trucking Regulations
Pennsylvania has adopted many of the federal trucking standards. These laws governing trucks passing through the state are complicated; interstate trucks need to meet requirements from many states. Trucks involved in accidents may not be following the letter of the law. To determine whether the truck was legally traveling in Pennsylvania, you need an experienced trucking accident lawyer to analyze your situation.
