About Truck Accidents
Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer
Large trucks, sometimes called 18 wheelers, big rigs, or semis, make up a large percentage of the vehicles traveling on Pennsylvania’s highways. Responsible for transporting food products, merchandise, livestock, and other vehicles, large trucks are very important to consumers and businesses across the U.S. Due to the large size of these vehicles and the heavy weight of the vehicles themselves, large trucks have the potential to cause very severe accidents. Truck drivers must take great care when behind the wheel, and anytime they act negligently and cause an accident, they or their company will be responsible for any resulting injuries or deaths.
When a semi-truck is involved in an accident, the injuries that result can be catastrophic. Brain injuries,
spinal cord injuries,
broken bones, amputated limbs, and severe burns are all common
types of injuries resulting from truck accidents in Philadelphia. Regardless of how severe your injuries may be, you should speak with Attorney Thomas J. Murphy to find out what kind of compensation you may be entitled to.
