York Truck Accident Attorney

Accidents Involving Semi-Trucks & 18-Wheelers in York

Large truck and specifically big-rig accidents are very few by comparison to the number of auto accidents. This is because of the training a semi-truck operator must undergo in order to drive one of these huge vehicles. Most tractor-trailer operators are highly skilled. When an operator loses control of one of these enormous cargo carriers, very often catastrophic injuries and fatalities result. If you have lost a loved one in such an accident or been lucky enough to survive this kind of collision, it is crucial that you consult an experienced York personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

Trucking Accident Lawyer in York & Lancaster, PA

There are a number of factors which could contribute to a large commercial truck collision and each accident is unique.

An operator might lose control of a truck due to:

  • A malfunction
  • If his cargo is out of balance
  • the operator is impaired by fatigue, alcohol, drugs or medication
  • Another vehicle or obstacle on the road necessitates an immediate stop or turn unexpectedly
  • Bad road conditions

Commercial truck operators and trucking companies are subject to numerous federal and state regulations specifically to improve safety. When these regulations are not followed a truck or its operator may be a danger to have on the road. After an accident has occurred the vehicles involved are towed away and the accident debris is cleaned up. By doing this, a great deal of vital information about the accident is destroyed.

By calling a seasoned truck accident lawyer immediately to a full on the spot investigation the scene can be done and crucial evidence preserved. Taking immediate steps to prevent the operator's and trucking company's logs and records from being disposed of, and the vehicles being repaired or stripped down can affect the outcome of your claim for damages.
