Do You Have A Strong Truck Accident Claim?
The highest value truck accident claims involve:
- A clear case for truck driver or trucking firm liability
- Severe injuries (such as head/spine trauma, broken bones, organ damage, joint injuries, limited mobility)
- Immediate medical treatment was sought, with a physician presiding over rehabilitation
- Cases of wrongful death with spouses or dependents left unable to fend for themselves
Was Someone Else At Fault For Your Injuries?
You may wonder, “What if it was partially my fault?” In the State of Pennsylvania, you can collect money if it was determined you were less than 50% at-fault for causing the accident, albeit a reduced amount. For instance, if you braked abruptly to avoid hitting an animal and a speeding truck driver rear-ended you, it might be determined you were 10 percent at-fault for what happened. If you are granted $100,000, you will be able to collect $90,000 of that.
Truck drivers can be held liable for:
- Failing to signal
- Failure to leave enough following distance
- Flagrant recklessness
In addition, trucking firms can be held liable for inadequate hiring, training, and retention. Often, firms compensate drivers for faster deliveries and encourage employees to work beyond federally limited hours. Third parties can be held liable for improper truck maintenance or unsafe cargo loading. Where there is liability, we will find it.
What We Do
The truth is, you may never know precisely what happened in those moments before the accident without a full investigation. Police resources are limited, but a large law firm like Chaffin Luhana has the manpower and financial backing to pursue matters to the furthest extent.
We leave no stone unturned. We’ll interview eyewitnesses, collect surveillance footage, obtain truck black box recorders if they exist, and enlist the help of accident reconstructionists, economists, medical professionals, safety inspectors, and others pertinent to your case.
We will make sure your story is told, and your injuries are not minimized. You are in charge of your case. We will not settle or push for trial without your approval. We will counsel you and provide every resource necessary to win, but ultimately, the pursuit of justice is yours.
Best of all, we provide free consultations and legal representation with no upfront fees. You only pay us after we recover compensation on your behalf. Contact Chaffin Luhana to schedule a risk-free meeting.
