Were you injured in a truck accident in Philadelphia? You may expect the truck driver or trucking company to accept responsibility and provide you with the funds you need to offset the harm they caused you. Unfortunately, many trucking companies and insurance companies are more concerned about their bottom line than they are about making things right with you after a truck wreck.

After a motor vehicle accident, truck drivers and carriers often take extraordinary steps to deny responsibility and limit their obligation to support crash victims. This behavior leaves victims needing professional legal assistance to secure fair compensation for their losses.

Don’t get pushed around by big companies and their insurers. Contact Eisenberg, Rothweiler Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C. for help getting the money and accountability you’re owed. Consultations are free and come with no obligation, so there’s no risk in speaking with a Philadelphia truck accident lawyer from our firm.

Truck Accident Liability in Philadelphia

Truck drivers are not the only parties responsible for the operation of their vehicles. Depending on the circumstances, any of the following parties may be liable in a Pennsylvania truck accident case:

  • Truck drivers and owner-operators
  • Truck owners
  • Trucking companies
  • Cargo loading teams
  • Manufacturers of defective truck parts
  • Negligent truck repair shops or mechanics
  • Government entities responsible for road maintenance

Our Philadelphia Truck Accident Attorneys Fight For Fair Compensation to Truck Accident Victims

Many truck accidents cause significant property damage and catastrophic injuries, resulting in expensive legal claims. Big trucking companies and their insurers would prefer not to pay these legal claims and often deny liability by:

  • Blaming the accident on victims or other road users
  • Claiming the driver was an independent contractor or non-employee
  • Repairing or junking trucks to hide evidence of mechanical defects
  • Deleting or concealing documentation of unsafe company practices

Potential Compensation for Semi-Truck Accidents

A successful third-party claim against a truck driver or another at-fault party could provide you with compensation for:

  • Hospital bills and other crash-related medical expenses
  • Lost wages from any time you miss work due to your injuries
  • Projected losses in earning capacity, if your injuries are permanent
  • Subjective losses, such as pain, suffering, and lost quality of life
