Scranton, Wilkes-Barre Truck Accident Lawyers

Serving Wilkes Barre & The Greater Scranton PA areas

TRUCK ACCIDENTS INCLUDE:

  • Trailer Rollover Accidents

    • With the enormous size of tractor trailers, the chances of a rollover is much higher than a passenger vehicle's, especially at highway speeds & road conditions.
  • Rear-End Tractor Trailer Collisions

    • If a driver is distracted and miscalculates a stop, the truck could rear-end a smaller vehicle.
  • Runaway Trailer Accidents

    • Even with runaway trailer ramps on roads with steep road declines, there are still runaway trailer incidents. Malfunctioning braking systems can cause a semi-truck to become a major road hazard for surrounding vehicles.
  • Underride Collisions

    • Sadly, these accidents have the highest rate of fatality when a smaller vehicle travels under a large big rig.
  • Lost Load Accidents

    • Cargo transported by tractor trailers may not be secured correctly and can become a major hazard to those traveling close to the truck.

All drivers share the road with them; tractor trailers, semis, big rigs, 18-wheelers. With traveled miles increasing each year and delivery deadlines becoming tighter, truck accidents can occur from a variety of causes. From driver fatigue, aggressive driving, speeding, illegal traffic maneuvers, or other distractions, the misfortune of a truck accident can have devestating consequences for families.

were occupants of the other vehicles.
