We Pursue Compensation From All Responsible Parties
When a motorist suffers injuries in a truck accident in Pennsylvania, several parties may be responsible. Our job as your Doylestown truck accident lawyers is to investigate your accident, gather evidence, and identify every party that may bear liability.
Once we have evidence that someone is partly or fully responsible for your injuries, we can build a case against them and pursue them and their insurer for damages.
Parties commonly liable for truck accidents include:
The Truck Driver
When looking for the responsible party in a truck accident, the most obvious place to start is with the truck driver. We can examine the driver's actions leading up to the crash and determine if they violated a traffic law or behaved in a way that makes them responsible.
If the truck driver involved in your accident did any of the following, they are probably liable for your injuries:
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving while distracted
- Failing to yield
- Following too closely
- Changing lanes improperly
- Violating hours of service rules
The Trucking Company
In Pennsylvania, trucking companies share in the responsibility for injuries caused by their drivers. This law, called vicarious liability, allows us to pursue the trucking company for damages when a truck driver injures one of our clients.
The biggest benefit of going after the trucking company is that it is likely to have much greater financial resources than the driver. If we are able to secure a substantial settlement, we will have more luck actually collecting it from the company.
Other Potentially Responsible Parties
Depending on the circumstances of your truck accident, other parties besides the truck driver and trucking company could be responsible. These parties include the truck manufacturer and the local municipality (if, for instance, a faulty traffic light contributed to the crash).
We Investigate and Build a Compelling Claim for Damages
The truck accident lawyers in Doylestown at Cordisco & Saile LLC have a long track record of winning damages for clients injured in crashes. Our personal injury lawyers offer the following:
Free Case Evaluation
Before we take your case, we want you to be 100 percent confident in our ability. That is why we offer a free case evaluation to all new clients. We will sit down with you, review the evidence, and let you know what we can do for you and what to expect.
We conduct a full investigation into your truck accident to get to the bottom of what happened and who is responsible.
We can look at police reports, talk to witnesses, bring in accident reconstruction experts, and review photo and video evidence if available.
We can also subpoena the truck driver's log book, which the law requires him to keep up-to-date at all times. If it is behind, features inconsistencies, or shows the driver was driving too many hours without taking the required rest, we can use it against the driver and the trucking company.
Evidence Gathering and Settlement Negotiation
We collect all the available evidence and assemble it into a compelling case. By the time we approach the responsible party and their insurer to negotiate for damages, we will have enough evidence to deal from a position of strength.
Jury Trial Experience
If necessary, we can file a lawsuit and try your case in court in front of a jury, a place where we have had success winning damages for accident victims.
