Were you injured in a truck accident? Contact us now to speak with one of the nation’s top truck accident lawyers for free.
Being involved in an accident with a commercial truck can have unthinkable consequences. From months or years of medical treatment to learning how to cope with the emotional trauma you have endured, the effects of a truck accident can touch all aspects of your daily life. You need to do everything possible to help yourself and your family move on, and this includes standing up for your legal rights.
While truck accidents can have a variety of different causes, two factors are most-frequently to blame: truck driver and trucking company negligence. Unfortunately, despite the clear risk to other motorists, truckers and trucking companies routinely make decisions that put others in harm’s way. When lives are at stake, there are no excuses for recklessness, carelessness, or profit-motivated shortcuts. Truck accident victims deserve to be compensated, and those who are negligent deserve to be held accountable.
We represent truck drivers as well as other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians who have suffered serious injuries in an accident involving a commercial truck or tractor trailer.
At Munley Law, we are known for our experience in truck accident settlements and trial victories.

“I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer . . . that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him.” – Truck Accident Client

Pennsylvania Truck Accident FAQs
Q: Is the trucking company liable if I was injured by a speeding truck driver?
Potentially, yes. If the truck driver who hit you was employed by a trucking company, then the trucking company could be liable for your injuries. This is true not only for speeding, but also for other common driving mistakes such as:
- Braking too suddenly or too late
- Failing to maintain control
- Falling asleep behind the wheel
- Following too closely
- Merging without looking
- Talking or texting behind the wheel
Q: What are some other common factors in commercial truck accidents?
Along with truck driver negligence, there are a number of other common factors in commercial trucking accidents. Many of these have to do with maintenance and loading issues, including:
- Brake, engine, and transmission failures
- Failure to conduct routine maintenance
- Faulty brake jobs and other negligent repairs
- Unpressurized liquid cargo
- Unsecured and unbalanced cargo loads
Q: How can I prove that the truck driver or trucking company is responsible for my accident?
That’s where we come in. When we represent truck accident victims, we rely on numerous sources of evidence to prove that our clients are entitled to maximum compensation for their injuries and losses. We work with eye witnesses, expert witnesses, accident reconstructionists, and utilize the latest technology to prepare your case.
