This holiday season people from across the state of Pennsylvania will be traveling on roadways to meet family and friends. While everyone hopes that their trips will be safe and uneventful, many people will be involved in accidents along the way. When a motor vehicle accident includes a truck, the outcome can be very serious. Truck accidents are often severe and include injuries.
There can be many causes for a truck accident. Traffic accidents are often caused, however, by negligent truck drivers. These drivers fail to take their duty to keep others safe seriously. They may engage in risky behavior such as texting and driving or drinking and driving. The truck itself may also cause the accident. If the trunk company fails to adequately maintain a truck it can be a hazard to anyone on the road. Truck accidents can be caused by faulty truck parts or inadequate lights, among other things, on the vehicle.
If a negligent truck driver or truck company is responsible for a truck accident, then Pennsylvania residents may be entitled to compensation for their injuries.
