Trucking Accidents

Large trucking accidents have been on the rise in the Lehigh Valley and northwest New Jersey.  Every day, the highways in eastern Pennsylvania and northwest New Jersey, including Interstates 78 and 80 and Routes 22, 33, 31, 100, 46, 309, 222, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike are used by hundreds of thousands of cars and trucks, resulting in the potential for a significant number of serious and life-threatening trucking collisions.  The Lehigh Valley has also recently become a warehouse and distribution facility hub that attracts more tractor-trailers and trucks every year, thereby increasing the risk of catastrophic trucking accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, call the trucking accident attorneys at Bruno Law at 610-258-4003 to schedule your free initial consultation.  Our attorneys have decades of experience recovering significant monetary compensation on behalf of trucking accident victims.  We will fight to ensure that the insurance carrier of the truck driver responsible for your collision pays for your lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent injuries, and any future treatment made necessary as a result of your injury.  We accept all of our trucking accident cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we don’t get paid for our services until we recover compensation for you.

Trucking accidents can be caused by:

  • Aggressive drivers
  • Driver fatigue
  • Unrealistic schedules
  • Long work shifts
  • Improper training and supervision
  • Failure to inspect brakes, tires, lights
  • Tailgating
  • Texting and driving
  • Cell phone use
  • Overloaded trucks

What should I do?

Following a trucking accident, it is important that you consult with an experienced trucking accident attorney immediately.  Large trucking companies know that victims are at their most vulnerable state following the accident, so they typically send their representatives to confront the accident victims immediately following an event.  These agents work to try to limit their company’s liability.  Do not negotiate directly with the trucking company, insurance adjusters, or trucking company lawyers.  Do not sign anything without first consulting with your attorney.

The attorneys at Bruno Law know that injuries resulting from trucking accidents are often serious and life threatening.  Many injury victims are overwhelmed following the accident, and we work to alleviate your concerns regarding the legal aspect of things.  We will handle your case quickly and effectively.  We will recover the maximum monetary compensation that you deserve.
