Adam Barnett, Partner and Truck Accident Lawyer

We’re the Erie trucking accident lawyers with experience.

Our Erie, PA and Smethport, PA Truck Accident Attorneys handle cases throughout Pennsylvania. Whether you’re driving a tractor trailer or were hit by a big rig, a truck accident is devastating. Truckers are constantly pressured to drive longer hours and make longer hauls, all while driving an enormous 18-wheeler with poor visibility; under these conditions, accidents aren’t only common and tragic, they’re inevitable. Because of their size, when you’re hit by a semi, the damage can be fatal or catastrophic. Steps need to be taken immediately to preserve important pieces of evidence and interview the necessary witnesses before evidence is lost. That’s why, after a trucking accident, you need an attorney immediately.

In Pennsylvania, truckers are governed by a complex set of regulations that need to be explored when investigating an accident. Often times a proper investigation requires obtaining the “black box” and the maintenance log. If you were hit by an eighteen wheeler, don’t try to handle the claim on your own. Trucking claims require experience investigating a complex series of insurance coverages to ensure you have access to all the money to which you’re entitled.

If you are a truck driver and were injured in an accident, depending on the nature of your employment, you might also have a trucking accident workers’ compensation claim.
