Harrisburg Truck Accident Lawyers
Compensation for catastrophic injuries caused by 18-wheeler collisions
Accidents involving tractor-trailers tend to result in catastrophic and fatal truck injuries because of the weight and size of trucks, especially compared with much lighter and smaller automobiles or motorcycles. Pittsburgh personal injury lawyers at The Moyles Law Firm represents the injured and family members of those killed by the negligence of drivers and trucking companies.
Common causes of truck and tractor-trailer accidents
Even if you are a careful driver, you are at risk of tractor-trailer collisions. Typical causes of truck accidents are outside your control. Long-haul drivers commonly suffer from sleep deprivation. These 18-wheelers lack maneuverability, and one careless mistake can lead to disaster. Mechanical defects in your car or the truck can cause an unavoidable collision. Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer, Jim Moyles, can assist you in cases involving:
Liability of multiple parties
Multiple parties are often responsible for a trucking accident. As an experienced 18-wheeler wreck lawyer, Jim diligently researches your case to identify and include all liable parties. Your personal injury case may involve a negligent:
- Truck driver
- Owner of the tractor and trailer
- Lessee of the tractor and trailer
- Manufacturer of vehicles, equipment or parts
- Truck’s cargo shipping company
- Construction company that created roadway obstructions
- Municipality that failed to maintain safe roadways
Challenging those with deep pockets
Trucking companies typically maintain risk management departments that act immediately when collisions involving their trucks and drivers occur. They quickly appear on the scene to minimize their liability and build a defense before a lawsuit is even filed. Jim is a lawyer who matches the 18-wheeler companies’ perseverance and diligence when building your case. He promptly collects evidence, photographs the accident site, interviews witnesses to learn the facts and constructs a solid strategy based on the truth. Applying his 30 years of experience, Jim perseveres against large corporations to win you the compensation you deserve.
