Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania
Tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are capable of causing some of the most extensive harm in the event of a truck accident. In one recent year’s time in the U.S., approximately 110,000 people were injured as a result of truck accidents. These accidents happen in the blink of an eye and lead to serious injuries including spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, fractures, and more. If you have been hurt in a truck accident and wonder where you can turn, it is important that you seek the help of an accident attorney.
Nobody is ever fully prepared to face the aftermath of a Pennsylvania truck accident on their own. However, this is the reality that far too many face every year. Because truck drivers spend a long period of time on our roads every day, they are more likely to speed to their destinations or drive distracted. Truck drivers also sometimes fall asleep at the wheel if they are driving while fatigued. If you can show that a truck driver is to blame for your collision, you can be successful as you move forward with your Pennsylvania personal injury claim.
