Commercial motor vehicles, trucks, tractor trailers, semi-trucks and 18-wheelers cause countless accidents on Pennsylvania roads and highways resulting in wrongful death and catastrophic injuries. Trucks often weigh 80,000 pounds or more compared to average car weight of 3,000 pounds. Because of this disparity in weight, collisions with trucks often result in life-changing injuries or even death including:
- Wrongful Deaths
- Spinal cord injuries or fractures
- Quadriplegia or Paraplegia
- Head injuries or brain damage
- Multiple fractures
Truck and tractor trailer crashes are often caused by driver or trucking company negligence including:
- Driver Negligence: speeding; reckless lane changes; distracted driving through use of cell phone, texting or computer; fatigue or sleeping at the wheel due to exceeding maximum driving hours
- Violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
- Negligent hiring, training or supervision of truck drivers
