Truck Accidents Lawyer in Lancaster

A skilled personal injury attorney can get the results you deserve.

Due to their weight and size, big rig trucks tend to be more hazardous on Lancaster roadways than other types of vehicles. These trucks take longer to stop and have large blind spots, so speeding and other reckless driving could mean a genuine catastrophe. Also, truck drivers often operate their vehicles while fatigued in order to meet tight deadlines, sometimes even ignoring company regulations and state and federal law.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a semi truck, you need the help of a qualified Lancaster personal injury attorney who has the knowledge and skill to get the best outcome for your personal injury case. At Michelizzi, Schwabacher, Ward & Ward, we have more than 60 years of experience in providing individualized service and compassionate legal counsel, and we have members of our team with an AV Preeminent® rating.

Truck Accidents Are More Dangerous Than Car Accidents

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, occupants of passenger vehicles are much more likely to die in car accidents with semi-trucks than the truck occupants. In fact, on U.S. roads, 97 percent of all deaths in these types of accidents were of the occupants of the passenger vehicles. This statistic is not all that surprising in a case where an 80,000-pound truck collides with a 4,000-pound sedan. Add in the problem of excessive speed or a careless lane changes and the regular vehicle does not stand much of a chance. When drivers and trucking companies ignore safety for the sake of profit, they put other drivers in harm's way.

You Need Experienced Legal Counsel on Your Side

When drivers of tractor trailers are operating their trucks within proper safety standards and keep their vehicles regularly maintained, the risks of accidents are not nearly as high. Unfortunately, when profits are on the line, drivers and their employers are too often willing to cut corners on maintenance and drive unsafely in order to make extra money. Perhaps your accident with a big rig could have been avoided if the driver had paid closer attention to safety regulations and roadway laws.

If so, you will need an experienced Lancaster personal injury lawyer on your side to analyze your case and determine what type of compensation you may be entitled to receive. Don't suffer the pain of your injuries in silence while the truck driver or employer continues to put other motorists at risk. Contact us today and let us explain how we can help you and your family.
