Liability in truck accidents is handled differently in court

Trucking accidents occur almost as frequently as car accidents. And like car accidents, not all truck crashes result in serious bodily injury or death. However, when a truck is involved in an accident it may cause more damage due to the shear size of the vehicle involved. So, when two trucks are involved in a collision, the potential for damage to the trucks and to any infrastructure that may be involved in the accident is that much greater. Truck accidents can have a dramatic impact on the individuals involved.

Will harsher underage drinking penalties reduce drunk driving accidents?

Drunk driving is a recognized problem in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. A drunk driving car crash can have devastating effects on the drunk drivers themselves, but also have an even greater impact on the victims of these types of accidents. Victims who are hit by drunk drivers often suffer serious bodily injury, and in some cases, even die.

Negligent truck driver held responsible

Truck accidents occur all too frequently on Pennsylvania roadways. The likelihood that a crash will end in serious bodily injury or death is unfortunately high due to the size of the vehicles involved in these types of accidents. Because of the expertise required to drive a truck, all truck drivers have to possess a specific type of license to operate the vehicle: a commercial driver's license, commonly referred to as a CDL. A CDL holds truck drivers to a different, higher standard of driving than the rest of the motorists on the roads. Yet, even with the special knowledge and skills that truck drivers possess, truck accidents still happen. When they do, the results often are devastating.

Hundreds flee their homes after Pennsylvania truck accident

It sounds like the set-up for a mass tragedy: in the early hours of the morning, a semi trailer carrying flammable material overturns in a small Pennsylvania town, falling against a building and forcing hundreds of residents to flee from their homes. Amazingly, there were no injuries reported after such an accident occurred about 200 miles from Pottsville.
