I was hit by a tractor trailer or commercial truck. What should I do?

If you are involved in a trucking collision, remember these five points:

  1. Notify your insurance company as soon as possible.
  2. Do not speak to the other party’s insurance company or insurance claims adjuster under any circumstances.
  3. Do not sign any documents from the other party’s insurance company.
  4. Do not accept a settlement.
  5. Call us at 724-375-6683 to schedule your free legal consultation so that we can help you maximize the compensation that you receive.

How can I prove it was the truck driver’s fault?

Our attorneys have years of experience representing clients who have been injured in truck collisions in Beaver County and all over Pennsylvania.

We explore all of the potential contributing factors, including:

  • Was the truck mechanically sound?
  • Was the truck overloaded?
  • Was the truck driver paying attention?
  • Was the truck driver texting and driving?
  • Was the truck driver obeying the speed limit for big rigs?
  • Was the truck driver properly trained?
  • Was the truck driver over his daily quota of time behind the wheel?

What is the value of my claim?

Attorneys are not permitted to guarantee clients that their claim will result in a settlement or court decision of a certain dollar amount. However, our attorneys have years of experience maximizing the compensation our clients receive.

In a personal injury case involving a tractor trailer or commercial truck, you may be entitled to recover damages including, but not limited to:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages, including overtime
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Physical Disability
  • Mental Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Permanent Scars
  • Emotional Trauma
  • Mental Anguish
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life
  • Loss of Love & Affection
  • Embarrassment

Shortly after the crash, the other driver’s insurance company offered me a settlement. What should I do?

Call us immediately.

Do not accept a settlement.

Do not speak to the other party’s insurance company.

Do not sign any documents from the other party’s insurance company.

The other driver’s insurance company has skill and experience in minimizing their liability after accidents. It’s highly unlikely that they’re offering you the full, fair compensation to which you are entitled.

You need an attorney to represent you, or your claim and legal rights may be compromised.
