Should You Call a Pittsburgh Truck Accident Lawyer?
There is more to accidents than meets the eye. You may not conclusively know what happened in those fateful moments before your accident. A Pittsburgh truck accident lawyer can help you figure it out with a team of investigators, accident reconstructionists, and medical experts.
If a trucker broke the law, there is a good chance you stand to recover medical expenses, lost wages, an estimated amount of pain and suffering, and disability-related costs.
Common factors in truck accidents include:
- Brake defects
- Failure to yield right-of-way or stop at a traffic control device
- Fatigue-related to driving over federally mandated hours
- Inadequate surveillance
- Poor roadway maintenance, shrubbery clearing, or pothole repairs
- Prescription drug abuse, driving while intoxicated or driving under the influence
- Truck parts failures or loading errors
- Unfamiliarity with the travel route
- Unsafe speeding over the posted limit or for current weather conditions
In these cases, our McKees Rocks truck accident lawyers can help identify issues of liability. While you can name the truck driver in your lawsuit, ultimately, the (well-insured) trucking firm may be held liable, which will ensure you maximum compensation for your losses.
When Should You Call A Lawyer?
Naturally, we prefer to work with personal injury clients right away when the evidence is fresh. In the immediate aftermath of injury, we’ll help you find the best medical care provider for your injuries, and we’ll ensure all evidence (like surveillance footage, black box recorders, and car wreckage) gets preserved.
Sometimes the full expense of an automobile crash is not immediately known. We may wait up to six months before filing the lawsuit if you are still acutely injured and undergoing treatments. This will give us a more accurate estimate of future expenses. By law, you have up to two years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Why Chaffin Luhana?
Our attorneys have more than 85 combined years in the legal field and have recovered over $1 billion for our clients. Our vast team includes former defense attorneys, federal prosecutors, judicial law clerks, court-appointed leaders, and social workers.
Many catastrophic big rig accidents involve truck part failures involving the brakes, underride guards, fuel tanks, lighting, tires, windshield wipers, and steering mechanisms. Our McKees Rocks truck accident lawyers cut their chops on defective product liability cases – an area where we’re particularly skilled in negotiating six and seven-figure recoveries.
