Philadelphia Truck Accident Lawyers
New Jersey and Pennsylvania 18-wheeler Collision Lawyers
Rules and limits govern how many hours truck drivers remain on the road. Unfortunately, driver fatigue is a major cause of truck accidents. Poor judgment, delayed reactions and falling asleep at the wheel have no place on the road, but the drivers of these 18-wheelers continually push their hours and miles.
We Understand the Nature of Your Injuries
Our Philadelphia truck accident attorneys have handled some of the most complex cases with successful outcomes in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Your injuries may be severe and include the following:
- Broken bones
- Burns and scarring
- Rib fractures
- Internal injuries
- Herniated disk in the neck or back
Catastrophic injuries can include brain damage and neuropsychological injuries, as well as paraplegic injuries and orthopedic problems.
Your doctor may tell you that you need surgery and physical therapy.
This all sounds new and foreign if you have never been in an accident before. However, these injuries, diagnostic tests and therapies are all terms and conditions that our Philadelphia trucking accident attorneys understand. Medical knowledge is imperative to building a strong claim and case in order to fight for compensation.
We Know How to Prove Your Case Against a Trucking Company
Larger and more sophisticated insurance companies than those covering automobiles often insure trucking companies. They frequently carry larger insurance policies. Our Montgomery County injury lawyers know what is required to prove a negligence claim against the trucking company and how to get this proof. We force the trucking company to produce driving, maintenance, and safety inspection records, and more.

- Driver fatigue, from being on the road too long
