Truck accidents can result in much more devastating injuries than the average car accident. One reason is that trucks are enormous; they can weigh in excess of 40 tons, while a car or SUV might weigh two or three tons.

Legally, 18-wheeler wrecks are more complex than an average car accident. There are more sources of potential liability. The driver, the owner of the tractor, the owner of the trailer, the warehouse that loaded the truck and the shop that maintained it may all share responsibility for the accident.
At Dansky | Katz | Ringold | York, our Pennsylvania trucking accidents attorneys will pursue all possible sources of potential liability to maximize the amount of damages our truck accident clients receive. If you were injured in a commercial trucking accident, or if a loved one died a wrongful death in a truck wreck, please contact us today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation.
We represent clients who were injured in truck accidents, including those caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Alcohol or drug use — DWI/DUI
- Improper lane changes
- Inadequate maintenance
- Improper loading
Truckers are under such pressure to deliver goods on time that they frequently violate federal regulations regarding how much time a driver can stay behind the wheel. As soon as we take a truck accident case, we move quickly to obtain the driver's logbooks — both the ones documenting his or her actual driving time and the ones many drivers keep for authorities. We will request data from the truck's black box record or satellite tracking system, if the truck is so equipped.
Our investigation may include hiring an expert in accident reconstruction to prove fault on the truck.
