How Do You Move Forward After A Truck Accident?
When you drive next to a commercial truck on the highway, even the air becomes harder to drive through. The massive size and weight of these trucks are enough to make sharing the road harder, and getting into an accident with one can leave people with the most devastating of injuries.

The Complexity Of Negligence In Truck Accidents
While every motor vehicle accident can lead to extensive injuries, which are fought vigorously by insurance companies, truck accidents are more complex. The injuries are often more serious than other accidents, but the confusing chain of liability is what causes the most complications. You see, any truck accident has many parties involved:
- The driver of the truck
- The owner of the truck
- The group that loaded the truck
- The municipality that maintains the road
- The group that created the schedule
Because of strict federal and Pennsylvania laws regarding commercial vehicles and the initial liability for an accident, it can be a lengthy and hard-fought process to arrive at the appropriate outcome for a given accident.
How Serious Are The Injuries From A Commercial Truck Accident?
The injuries that come from truck accidents run the full range from minor cuts and bruises to massive physical injuries to your spinal cord and brain. Often injuries from negligence in commercial trucking can lead to death. The medical treatment for these issues is expensive. And the trucking company does not want to end up with the bill.
