Pennsylvania Truck Accident FAQs
Q: Can I seek financial compensation from the trucking company if the truck driver was at fault?
Potentially, yes. Many truck drivers work for large trucking companies; and under Pennsylvania law, employers can be held liable for their employees actions “within the scope of employment.” If your accident occurred because the truck driver was speeding, following too closely, or distracted behind the wheel, these are all mistakes for which the trucking company may be legally accountable.
Q: What are some common factors in commercial truck accidents besides driver negligence?
In addition to truck driver negligence, there are a variety of other issues for which trucking companies can be held legally-responsible as well. Some of the most common non-driver-related factors in tractor trailer and 18-wheeler accidents include:
● Inadequate truck maintenance
● Loose or unbalanced cargo, and other cargo loading errors
● Negligent truck repair
● Overloaded trailers
● Truck and trailer defects
Additionally, it is important to keep in mind that not all trucking accidents are triggered by the trucks involved. For example, maybe another driver hit the truck and caused a chain-reaction collision. Or maybe a defect in the road caused the truck driver to lose control. When we investigate your case, we will explore all potential causes to make sure we can seek full compensation for your injuries.
Q: Am I entitled to financial compensation for pain and suffering?
When you get hurt in a truck accident, you are entitled to financial compensation for all of your accident-related losses. This includes not only medical and repair bills, but loss of income, loss of enjoyment, pain and suffering, and various other forms of financial and non-financial harm.
Q: How long do I have to seek compensation after a truck accident in Williamsport?
Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years. However, you should still speak with an attorney right away. It is important to investigate as soon as possible, and you need to know how to avoid mistakes that could jeopardize your financial recovery.
