Tractor-trailer accidents

As a passenger car on the road, driving near tractor-trailers can be nerve-wracking and dangerous. With their huge mass and size, it is difficult for tractor-trailers to stop. In the event of a tractor-trailer accident, the trucking company may send a representative to the scene. This representative may take advantage of your anxious and weakened state. To help ensure that you are not coerced, you should seek the legal advice of personal injury lawyers in PA.

Tractor trailer accidents can be caused by the following:

  • Mechanical failure or faulty brakes
  • Defective tires
  • Driver intoxication
  • Driver error or carelessness
  • Exhaustion or fatigue

Collecting information

Seeing a doctor should be your first concern if you are injured in a tractor-trailer accident. No matter how minor your injury may seem, it is essential that you seek medical attention to prevent the injury from becoming worse. After you have contacted your insurance company, you should contact personal injury attorneys in PA.

Your attorney will be able to help you collect the following evidence that will be vital to your case:

  • The log book of the driver, the black box of the truck, and the GPS information of the truck.
  • The policies and procedures of the trucking company regarding safety and maintenance, and the driving history of the trucking company and driver.
  • Statements from eyewitnesses.
  • The driving history of the driver, including prior traffic citations and/or accidents.
