Complex Lawsuits and Choosing the Right Lawyer
If you have been involved in a truck accident, you may be in need of a Philadelphia truck accident lawyer. Lawsuits involving semi-trucks or a tractor trailer can be very complex because there are usually large companies and many parties involved in the case, including the trucking company, the truck driver, the trucking contractor and the truck owner. In addition to multiple parties, there are usually multiple insurance companies involved as well. There may be legal issues involving workers’ compensation and handling an out-of-state accident. The situation may be further complicated by factors such as equipment malfunctions, overloading, brake and tire maintenance, trucking regulations, and appropriate markings and protective devices on the truck. Many times, a complete reconstruction of the accident must be conducted quickly in order to determine all of the factors and responsible parties involved.
