Challenging Liable Truck Drivers And Trucking Companies In Court

When passenger vehicles and semi trucks are involved in a collision, it is rare for car passengers to escape the crash unharmed. In the aftermath, truck accident victims have to confront more than a totaled car. Their physical, emotional and mental well-being may be at risk.

If you are recovering from a catastrophic motor vehicle accident with a semi truck, you may face significant obstacles to receiving a fair resolution. Commercial truck drivers are staunchly protected by their employers and the insurance companies are responsible for paying out claims against these policies. These businesses hire attorneys to defend their profits, not to help you recover from life-altering injuries.

Our personal injury lawyers at Elion, Grieco, Carlucci & Shipman, P.C., are familiar with the strategies these companies employ to limit their financial responsibilities. For more than 30 years, our Williamsport trial attorneys have challenged liable drivers and businesses in Pennsylvania courts. When insurance companies or trucking businesses offer you a low settlement for your injuries or refuse compensation, we take action quickly and aggressively.

Taking A Systematic Approach To Defending Your Claim

Our attorneys know which information is useful for developing a strong claim. Our team analyzes and utilizes evidence taken from a trucking accident scene to support your case. We have a record of success in holding negligent drivers liable for these acts:

  • Inattentive or drowsy driving
  • Intoxicated driving or driving under the influence of drugs or medication
  • Failing to maintain equipment or using defective equipment
  • Carrying loads that exceed regulations
  • Speeding or reckless driving

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has established safety regulations for the commercial trucking industry. If drivers disregard these rules in order to finish a job on time, their actions may lead to a devastating accident.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring that you do not suffer the long-term consequences of another driver's wrongful decision. Our million-dollar settlements and verdicts testify to the effectiveness of our advocacy.
