Truck Accident Lawyer York, Pennsylvania
Commercial Vehicle Accidents – Don’t Become a Statistic
There are many major roadways that barrel through Pennsylvania and if you’ve had the misfortune of being injured in commercial vehicle accident, don’t wait, speak with a truck accident lawyer York, PA trusts
right away. Trucks are always coming and going and going and coming and the real big trucks are paid by mile so they have every incentive to complete their miles as soon as possible so they can be paid more for the next load. The danger, of course, is speed kills, and with a multi-ton vehicle cruising down the highway, it can be like a missile blowing up you and your car to smithereens. Is this being hyperbolic? Hopefully! Or else you wouldn’t be reading this. Truckers are like everyone else, they want to do their jobs and go home to their families at the end of the day or week. But lets take a truck accident from two different perspectives, that of the trucker and that of the truck accident victim.
Imagine a trucker after driving for too many hours, is going 80 miles per hour in a 65 miles per hour speed limit zone at 2am when it’s dark on poorly lit road. You’re minding your own business and go to switch lanes from the fast lane to the middle lane of a three lane road and you’re going around 60 miles per hour. The trucker doesn’t have his lights on for some reason and you don’t see him and your turns into him and the truck accident happens. Your car spins out of control crashes into the divider, your airbags deploy and you escape with a broken wrist, some cracked ribs and wounded pride and your door won’t open. You call your loved one to tell them you were just in a truck accident and ask what to do. The trucker is on the phone as well. He’s speaking with the insurance company and his company and going through the truck accident protocol that they teach them. He may ask you how you are and if you say “I guess ok” the fact that you even said you were OK will be tried to be used against you at a later time.
The police arrive at the scene of the accident. You decline being taken away in an ambulance even though you should be based on how you feel but you want to tough it out. The police ask what happened and you say that you turned into the trucker because you didn’t see him. You’ve already sabatoged your own truck accident lawsuit on damages and liability without even realizing it. The trucker confirms that you turned into his truck. Photographs your case his truck and shortly thereafter he may have a team of people on the scene professionally working it up while you’re still dazed from the truck accident. You wind up in the hospital later that night from the pain where you discover the broken bones and you’re going to be out of work for 2-3 weeks. You’re wondering how you’re going to pay the bills when you receive a call from an insurance adjuster who just wants to go over a few things with you so they can send you a check. “I understand you turned into the truck, is that correct?” he asks. You reply, “yes” and ask them if they can pay for your medical bills and they tell you if you sign a few forms then they’ll pay for anything that your own insurance won’t.
This is not an uncommon experience in truck accident litigation. The trucking company has lawyers and a team working to destroy your case and you still haven’t even interviewed any truck accident law firms, much less selected one, so you are hurting your chances for a successful recovery.
Hopefully, you’re reading this as an academic exercise and will keep in mind if you’re involved in a truck accident you should know what to do. Right away you should call a truck accident lawyer in York, PA who can fight the Trucking Company, a law firm like Brown, LLC that handles truck accident litigation.
