Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer in Lehigh County
Collisions with freight trucks and tractor-trailers cause a large number of traffic fatalities in America and in Lehigh County. Auto accident attorneys at The Brod Law Firm are committed to ensuring that our clients receive maximum compensation in these cases. Because drivers of semi-trailers are under pressure to reach their destination, they often drive when exhausted. This fatigue, coupled with the size and mass of the vehicles, accounts for the large number of serious injuries and fatalities tractor-trailers cause.
The Brod Law Firm's experienced Lehigh Valley area truck accident attorneys litigate and settle many successful truck accident cases each year. The roads in Lehigh County can be especially hazardous due to high volume from the vehicles coming from the Northeast extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and its arteries. Route 309, a heavily traveled road requires much driving vigilance due to its variability between high speeds and delays at traffic lights due to high volume times of travel. Weekend nighttime driving has been known to be quite taxing for the poorly rested driver or motorist unfamiliar with the route leading to a number of multi-vehicle accidents. Other notable areas where we see serious accidents occurring with greater frequency are I-80, Route 22, Route 33 and I-78. We have successfully resolved many trucking accident claims in Lehigh County involving all types of trucks, including delivery trucks, vans, tractor trailers, dump trucks, cement trucks, garbage trucks and tanker trucks transporting combustible materials and foods. Motorists in Lehigh Valley with its varied roadways of high speed interstates and occasionally gridlocked major arteries heading into local roads can pose unique challenges.
We have convenient home and hospital visits for you at no charge!
Although recent legislation has attempted to prevent overly exhausted drivers from getting behind the wheel of tractor-trailers, injuries and fatalities continue to occur nationally and locally and in Lehigh County. Car accident lawyers at The Brod Law Firm are retained in many cases involving tractor-trailers each year. Because of the size of tractor-trailers, truck drivers often receive minor injuries compared to the major injuries and fatalities of passengers in smaller vehicles, and our Lehigh Valley truck accident attorneys want to ensure that the victims of these accidents are fully compensated for these injuries.
