Truck Accidents

Because of the size and weight of large commercial vehicles and 18-wheelers, accidents involving these types of vehicles are particularly catastrophic. They can cause staggering amounts of damage to vehicles and traumatic injuries to individuals.

Yet even when liability seems clear-cut, litigation might be incredibly difficult. There is a patchwork of complicated regulations pertaining to truck accidents. Likewise, insurance companies will often do whatever it takes to stop victims from recovering full damages.

At Vinsko & Associates, P.C., we know how demanding truck accident litigation can be, which is why we offer our services to residents throughout Luzerne County who have suffered injuries because of a truck driver's or trucking company's negligence.

Causes Of Trucking Accidents

Collisions with semi trucks are rarely mere "accidents." In most cases, the driver or the trucking company itself does something illegal that puts you and your loved ones in danger. To help build a case for compensation, we find the key errors that determine liability, like:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Hours-of-service log violations
  • Indications of drunk driving
  • Overloaded trailers
  • Excessive speeding for conditions
  • Trucking company violations
  • Improperly trained and non-licensed drivers
  • Failure to run background checks on drivers

Our lawyers are committed to finding the cause of the accident, placing the liability where it belongs, and helping you obtain the best compensation award possible for long-term medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
