Fault in a truck accident
There can be many factors that lead to a truck accident. In some cases, multiple parties will each share a part of the blame. The truck driver, the employer of the driver, the person responsible for loading the cargo onto the truck, and even a company that previously repaired the commercial vehicle could all be at fault.
That is why investigation is such an essential aspect of a truck accident lawsuit. We will work tirelessly to get to the bottom of what happened. At Chaffin Luhana, we take pride in our efforts to hold negligent truck drivers and trucking companies accountable for their actions.

Damages available in a Wilkinsburg truck accident lawsuit
While no amount of money can make up for the trauma of a truck accident, obtaining financial compensation for your injuries and other expenses can ease the stress of recovery. If your lawsuit is successful, you may be able to recover both economic damages as well as non-economic damages.
Economic damages are any financial loss that you can easily assign a dollar value, including:
- Medical bills;
- Home modifications and medical equipment;
- Transportation costs;
- Lost wages; and
- Reduced future earning capacity
Non-economic damages are your losses that are not easy to quantify because they are not directly related to monetary loss. Attorneys use a variety of formulas to determine the dollar value of these damages. Non-economic damages include:
