Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania
Truck accidents are more common on our roads than ever before. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 truck accidents led to injuries throughout the state. Trucks are some of the largest vehicles on our roads, which means that they are prone to causing some of the most catastrophic harm in the event of an accident. This also means that many lives are taken every year due to these accidents and Pennsylvania is no stranger to this.
