Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers and big rigs remain a significant safety concern on western Pennsylvania’s I-70, where rollovers and multi-vehicle pileups are not uncommon.

Commercial trucking, like all businesses, is profit-driven. When accidents happen, insurance companies are only looking out for their bottom line. With effective legal representation from Chaffin Luhana, injured victims are better positioned to secure the full damages to which they’re entitled.

Determining liability in commercial trucking accidents
When identifying potential defendants, our Bridgeville truck accident lawyers conduct exhaustive investigations to determine liability. Failed compliance with regulations set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Department of Transportation provides grounds for litigation, as does evidence of driver negligence, such as driving while fatigued or under the influence.
If the crash was caused by defective hitches, tires, or other truck components that proved faulty, a product liability suit might be warranted.
Liability could also fall on more than one entity in a truck accident claim. If an improperly loaded semi caused the collision, the cargo loader or shipper could be sued for damages. Companies in charge of truck maintenance can be held accountable if negligence caused a mechanical failure.
A lawsuit may be filed against:
- Truck driver
- Owner of the truck
- Party responsible for maintenance
- Company that loaded the truck
- Defective parts manufacturer
- A third party
