The weight, size and reduced maneuverability of an 18 wheeler make it much harder to drive than conventional motor vehicles – and much more dangerous. Even low-impact, low-speed crashes can cause serious injuries or death.
You are likely feeling a bit confused after your Pennsylvania truck accident. The laws governing the operation of 18 wheelers are complex. At Steven L. Chung, Esquire, we will explain your rights to you. We will help to handle your no-fault insurance claim from beginning to end. You have a right to submit a variety of claims for compensation, including:
You have a right to seek compensation from the at-fault driver and his or her insurance company. There could be other entities that could also be held responsible for the accident. For example, if the driver was pushed to drive longer than federal regulations allow, his or her employer could also be held accountable. Perhaps there was a mechanical error that can be linked back to the mechanic. At the law office of Steven L. Chung, Esquire, we work closely with accident reconstruction experts to analyze accident evidence, such as police accident reports, skid marks, body damages, potential environmental factors and witness statements.
The types of injuries that you could suffer in an 18 wheeler crash can vary significantly. For example, we have represented clients who have suffered tragic injuries including:
These injuries can be traumatic and life-changing. You may no longer be able to work at the same job. You may experience temporary or permanent disability from your wounds. Without your regular paycheck, your family may experience financial hardship. At the law office of Steven L. Chung, Esquire, we will pursue your truck accident case so you can concentrate on your recovery.
There are unique evidentiary issues in 18 wheeler crashes. Truckers are required to keep and maintain a logbook that records their hours of services. These logbooks are often referred to as “lie logs” by some trucks. Mr. Chung recognizes that prompt intervention and thorough investigation is the only way to ensure that critical evidence is not lost.
