Truck Accident Claims

Fighting For You After A Truck Accident

Attorney David Engle, located in State College, has been assisting truck accident victims, and their families, throughout central Pennsylvania to maximize their compensation for injuries or wrongful death since 1989.

Truck accidents kill hundreds of Americans each year and injure thousands more. To help avoid a truck accident, please keep a safe distance, drive cautiously, and remember that trucks are heavier than cars and require a much longer distance to stop. In addition, they have more blind spots than automobiles.

If you are unfortunate enough to have been involved in a truck or a tractor-trailer accident, you want to hire an attorney who has experience in handling truck accident claims. You do not want to speak to anyone — including an insurance adjuster or an attorney representing the trucking company — until you have retained an experienced lawyer.

An Attorney Experienced In Truck Accident Cases

Attorney David Engle understands truck accident cases. Truckers follow different “rules of the road” than auto drivers, and are subject to many different regulations governing the number of hours they can drive each day, weight loads, etc. Many of the regulations are federal laws that apply across state lines.

In any truck accident claim, failing to include the right parties can seriously jeopardize the amount of your recovery, and sometimes may prevent you from receiving any compensation. In trucking accidents, there are many parties that can potentially contribute to your accident, including the company that hires the driver, the truck driver, the owner of the truck cab, the owner of the truck trailer, the people who load the truck, the truck manufacturer, truck part manufacturers and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for improperly designing the roadway or highway.

At Engle, Kauffman & VanHorn, P.C., we are familiar with the rules governing Pennsylvania trucks and truck drivers. We are also familiar with all the potential parties that can be involved in a trucking accident, and we will thoroughly investigate your claim to ensure that you include all of the proper parties. We will aggressively pursue your claim: our goal is to obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible on your behalf.
