Truck Accident Attorney in Philadelphia

Helping You Get the Compensation You Need After a Semi-Truck Accident

Large trucks, also referred to as semi-trucks, are among the leading causes of death on American roads. This is because the sheer weight and size of these vehicles make accidents much more serious than any other type of vehicle collision. Thousands of people suffer fatally in truck accidents every year as a result of being involved in override and under-ride crashes. If you or someone you love was a victim in a truck accident, our Philadelphia truck accident lawyers at Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers can stand up for you.

Due to how potentially dangerous these vehicles are, there are stringent regulations at both the state and federal level put in place to minimize the possibilities of trucking accidents. A key factor among these regulations is the requirement for a truck driver to drive a certain number of hours per day. It’s also required that these drivers service their trucks regularly.

Common truck accidents causes include:

  • Driver fatigue from over-scheduling
  • Poorly maintained equipment or defective parts
  • Bad weather conditions
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Excessive speeds
  • Intoxication
  • Overloaded truck weight

Despite these regulations, statistics still show that the leading causes of truck accidents are driver fatigue and vehicle malfunction. This is most likely because some trucking companies disregard these critical regulations in order to increase their profits.
