Munhall Truck Accident Lawyers
Millions of commercial vehicles traverse our highways each day, including right here on the streets of Munhall. While most truckers are conscientious professionals, the massive size and weight of a large truck means that there is little room for error when something does go wrong.
Hopefully, neither you nor anyone you know will ever find themselves on the wrong end of a large truck collision. Still, it’s good to know that a skilled truck accident lawyer is available, just in case.

The heavyweight factors that make large truck collisions so serious
More than 6 million vehicle wrecks occur every year in the US. But large truck collisions are especially dangerous. This is true for the following reasons:
- Size and weight: The engine of a semi-truck is up to six times larger and heavier than that of a standard passenger vehicle and can carry tons of cargo weight.
- Power: A typical passenger car engine is rated between 100-200 horsepower. A semi-truck engine, on the other hand, can generate more than 600 horsepower.
- Hazardous cargo: many semi-trucks carry toxic, explosive, or otherwise hazardous material that can create a true public health danger.
Our team of Munhall truck accident lawyers is ready to advocate and fight for you. We provide a caring, compassionate and experienced team that is available to you 24/7.
Powerful trucks and the powerful interests behind them
Large transport companies have deep pockets, and so do their insurance companies. For accident victims, this means two things;
- The insurer will fight hard to deny claims: Semi-trucks are insured for much more than standard car policies, giving them plenty of reason to protect their interests.
- The trucking companies have a lot to lose: Not only can an accident make their insurance rates skyrocket; but it can also create public relations problems which hurt their business. They want to minimize their exposure and payouts, while closing your case quickly.
We say these things, not to discourage you from seeking justice, but to encourage you to seek a skilled Pittsburgh truck accident attorney to represent your case.
