Bucks County Truck Accident Lawyer

Have you ever noticed the sheer volume of trucks on the road in Bucks County? In 2014 there were over 6000 trucking accidents, and a high proportion of victims in these were seriously injured. Some of the reasons for such a high rate of accidents for trucks are because trucks sit higher on the road, have a higher center of gravity, and, in many cases, have drivers who are distracted due to fatigue. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys, and staff know how to properly evaluate an Accident Involving a Truck. We go to the scene and do a detailed analysis of the viability of the case.  The result of this evaluation process is that if we take the case, we believe we will win! When commercial truck drivers are negligent, they put other motorists at risk of injury. Too frequently, truck accidents have life-altering consequences - due to the sheer size and weight of these types of vehicles. Injuries from truck accidents may prevent a person from participating in once-daily-routine life activities. While it may seem straightforward that an accident involving a large semi-truck is more likely to cause severe damages, obtaining the rightful compensation for your inflicted injuries are not always as simple. Insurers for trucking companies are notorious for undervaluing the claims from these types of accidents, even for victims who have been seriously injured or even killed.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents:

  • Driver's lack of sleep
  • Drug usage during work
  • Defective equipment
  • Distractions by others on the road
Common injuries to others on the road are:
  • Death
  • Disfigurement
  • Fractures
  • Head injury
  • Brain Damage
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Contusions
  • Sprains
  • Strains
Trucks in this day and age are mostly equipped with all the equipment needed to record a crash event. The most noteworthy piece of evidence that one could obtain in a crash with a truck is the black box which will record everything during a crash event. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our Attorneys and staff understand the importance of collecting evidence that may be here one day but gone another. While the trucking industry is the fourth largest employer in this commonwealth, the industry must protect all of us from:
  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving too many hours without a break
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • Failure to check equipment
