Truck Accident Attorneys

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nationwide

Accidents involving semi trucks differ from other motor vehicle collisions for reasons beyond the sheer mass of an 18-wheeler. While semi truck drivers must follow the same guidelines as drivers of passenger vehicles, semi trucks are also governed by strict state and federal guidelines that do not apply to other motor vehicles.

The Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Golomb & Honik understand trucking industry regulations, and we have decades of experience helping victims of truck accidents caused by negligent drivers recover the financial compensation they are due.

Causes of Truck Accidents

To maintain high profit margins, some trucking companies and semi truck drivers employ dangerous practices such as setting unrealistic schedules that can result in severe injury or death to innocent people. Common contributing factors in semi truck accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Driving while impaired
  • Improperly secured cargo
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Overloaded trailer
  • Speeding
  • Underqualified or undertrained drivers
