Accidents involving commercially owned and operated trucks are different from your average motor vehicle accident and require a high level of expertise in the Federal Highway Traffic Safety rules, as well as knowledge of local and state rules and regulations that govern commercial vehicles. Under Pennsylvania’s laws, if you have been injured in a vehicle accident caused by another person’s recklessness or negligence, you may be entitled to recover damages that include medical costs, property loss, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Please call Munley, Munley & Cartwright’s lawyers for an expert assessment of your case.
At our Law Firm, our goal is to provide exceptional legal services to our clients. Our attorneys strive to achieve the highest standard of excellence in protecting the rights of our clients. Our team is committed to each case, and every client receives the benefit of our considerable resources and experience. We have the right combination of in-depth knowledge of trucking industry regulations and expertise in victims’ rights to structure the most successful claims for our clients who have been injured in commercial truck accidents.
Our experience has taught us that insurance companies may deny claims in truck collisions to protect the driving record of the truck driver. Truckers must follow specific State and Federal regulations, so it is important to retain a law firm that understands these regulations. The tort law is the law of safety, and we have been committed to reducing the number of truck-related accidents for many years. We have conducted in-house seminars and have spoken at seminars for trial lawyers around the country.
It is important that the firm you retain has the resources to hire the most experienced people in the country to investigate your case. Our lawyers have the necessary resources nationwide to hire experts in many areas including: maintenance, tire failure, accident reconstruction, federal safety rules and regulations and fleet maintenance.
Texas Workers Compensation laws as they pertain to vehicular accidents: If you were in an accident while “on the job”, or in other words if you were a worker injured in a truck accident while in the “course and scope” of your employment, you are entitled to Pennsylvania Workers Compensation benefits since your injuries are considered work related injuries, or an “on the job” injury accident. Ask one of our Workers Compensation lawyers how Texas “work comp” laws may apply to you within the context of “on the clock” in a job or work related accident.
