Pennsylvania, Trucking Accidents Attorneys
Trucking accident claims can result in devastating injuries, complex litigation and significant settlements and verdicts against large trucking companies and insurance carriers. If you have suffered a serious personal injury or you have lost a loved one to wrongful death in a truck accident we have the resources, skill and dedication to effectively handle your case.
"If a driver fails to take a break, has not properly maintained his rig or violates the motor vehicle code, it can be solid evidence that the driver who hurt you should not be on the road. We will identify every person or entity responsible for the accident."
At Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC we are well-versed in Pennsylvania and federal motor vehicle codes as they relate to trucking violations. Where a driver violates weight limits, has an improperly balanced load, is speeding or has not performed routine maintenance, you may be entitled to significant compensation after an accident.
