Serious accidents with heavy trucks often cause catastrophic, life-altering and sometimes fatal injuries. The size, weight and momentum of semi trucks and other large freight trucks contribute to the astounding force that can be exerted upon victims of truck wrecks. Regardless of who may have been at fault in a truck wreck, it is important to consult with an experienced lawyer who can help you pursue an accident injury claim as soon as possible. You may have underlying injuries that have not surfaced yet.

Pittsburgh Fatal Truck Crash Attorney

Attorney Bernie Tully has more than 30 years of legal experience in western Pennsylvania, and our law firm can help you seek the fair and just compensation you deserve. Trucking accident injury claims often require thorough investigation and aggressive legal pursuit to obtain maximum compensation for injuries. When you contact our office, we go straight to the scene of the accident. We work with private investigators to secure evidence, take photographs, contact witnesses and collaborate with expert witnesses, if necessary.

Trucking companies push their drivers to the limit all too often, and their negligence and/or carelessness can cause dangerous situations on the road. Truck drivers may become inattentive or distracted on the road if they have been driving too many hours without proper rest or if they are on a cellphone.

Truck driver fatigue and distraction are major issues that can cause devastating accidents. The trucking company can be held accountable in these cases and others that involve:

  • Poor maintenance or vehicle inspection
  • Brake or tire failure, which can lead to a jackknife truck accident
  • Speeding or driving in inclement weather, which may be the result of shipment schedules that are too tight
  • Failure to properly train drivers
  • Improper background checks on drivers
  • Logbook doctoring, which may allow drivers to sleep less

Trucking companies may influence drivers to violate safety regulations, or they may not properly train drivers on the importance of following all regulations. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, contact us right away. We can help you obtain the medical care you need, and we can get to work right away on pursuing your maximum financial recovery in an injury claim or wrongful death claim.
