Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania
Truck accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents on our roads due to the fact that they involve some of the largest vehicles. Because truck drivers spend an extended period of time on our roads, they are more likely to fall asleep at the wheel or drive distracted.
