Truck Accidents

Large trucks weighing more than 10,000 pounds, such as eighteen-wheelers and other freight carriers, can pose extreme hazards to other drivers on the road when operated in an unsafe manner, or when they are not properly maintained. Because of their size, collisions between large trucks and smaller passenger vehicles often have dire consequences for the occupants of the car or SUV, including paralysis, brain damage, or death. Our trucking accident team represents drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists who are injured in an accident as a result of a truck driver’s carelessness or recklessness. Common types of truck accidents include:

  • Jackknifing
  • Rear-End Accidents
  • Head-On Collisions
  • Speed-Related Accidents
  • Unsafe Lane Changes
  • Tire Blowouts
  • Unstable Weight Loads
  • Toll Booth Accidents

The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd have recovered tens of millions of dollars for victims of trucking accidents and are well versed on the unique dangers posed by tractor-trailers. Our trucking accident group negotiated a $26.1 million settlement (believed to be one of the largest personal injury settlements ever reported in Pennsylvania) on behalf of the occupants of a vehicle rear-ended by a speeding truck in a construction zone. Our trucking accident attorneys also secured a $14 million settlement for the family of a man who died after his car burst into flames after being struck from behind by a tractor-trailer at a toll booth. In another recent trucking accident case, our attorneys obtained a $6.75 million settlement on behalf of a woman who was killed when her car was struck by a tractor-trailer after it entered the intersection against a red light; our attorneys later discovered the truck driver was also in violation of many hours-of-service rules.

Our attorneys are here to help you recover for your pain and suffering, economic losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses, and our terrific paralegal staff will help you deal with your own insurance company and any medical or logistical issues.
