Truck Accident Attorneys in Harrisburg

Providing Proficient & Personalized Representation

Trucking accident claims can involve 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 lost a loved one to wrongful death in a truck accident, we have the resources, skill, and dedication to effectively handle your case.

At Shaffer & Engle, 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. You can trust our truck accident lawyers in Harrisburg to provide you with the strong representation you deserve.

It's often David vs. Goliath when going against an insurance company. We are here to even the playing field. Contact us at (717) 268-4287 for a free case evaluation.

Investigating Truck Accidents

Investigating a truck accident as soon as possible is critical to preserving your rights and opportunities for compensation. Evidence obtained through drivers’ logs or held by trucking companies could be destroyed if not immediately obtained after an accident. Our attorneys will also obtain medical records, police reports, and witness statements relevant to your case or claim.

Experienced in Complex Truck Accident Litigation

Trucking accidents often become more complex than other motor vehicle accident cases. They may involve large trucking companies, insurance carriers, and even multiple defendants. We make sure that the playing field is even when aggressively advocating for your rights to maximize compensation in your case.

Our Harrisburg truck accident attorneys are experienced in cases involving:

  • DUI accidents and drunk-driving
  • Weight restriction violations
  • Poorly maintained trucks
  • Driver negligence
  • Unsecured loads
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding

Our lawyers are highly skilled in both settlement negotiations as well as litigation. At the outset of your case, we begin an immediate and intensive investigation, collecting all necessary evidence including black box recording data, trucking company records, drivers’ logs, and witness statements. We also consult with experts who can help with reconstructing the events of the accident.

    “I highly recommend Attorney Jeff Engle. He was knowledgeable, thorough, resourceful, professional and understanding.

  • Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly.

    “At the law offices of Shaffer & Engle, my case was handled with professionalism, compassion, and dedication. Facing criminal charges was a very frightening experience to me, but I knew I was in good hands with Jeff Engle. I had no past experiences with the judicial system. I felt I was treated with courtesy and dignity. Jeff did everything within his legal powers to provide a great service when I was in need. From my experience with Jeff, he has been more than a lawyer; he is now considered a great new friend of my family. He took a personal interest in my case and for that I am eternally grateful. Jeff always delivered on what he said to me and did everything he set out to do. Jeff fought the prosecutor (DA) every step of the way without hesitation. Jeff advised me appropriately and always responded to my calls promptly. What could have been a truly awful situation was resolved completely to my satisfaction. I am available at any time to address any questions with respect to Jeff Engle as an attorney or as a person. I hold him in the highest regard.

I would and will recommend him and his law firm to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and aggressive law firm or criminal defense attorney.”

    Tara K

  • Elisabeth took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process.

    “I needed a criminal defense lawyer for a family member. So, having been represented by Shaffer & Engle previously, I contacted them. Elisabeth took our case and provided great counsel, direction, and splendid representation throughout the legal process. The case was dismissed which was the best verdict that could be achieved. We are so thankful and blessed to have had such a wonderful attorney!”

    Ernie M.

  • They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process.

    “Jeff is the fourth attorney that I have worked with regarding custody of my son. My previous attorneys were neither knowledgeable of the law as it applied to my case nor followed through on the actions they said they would take. Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion. Given that my case involved an international relocation, allocation of sole custody for residency purposes abroad, and a non-custodial parent who was anything but cooperative, there was a high likelihood that my case would be unsuccessful with even the potential of being ordered to return to the US to maintain physical custody of my son. Today my child and I are happily living abroad and I was able to obtain the residency permit for my son to remain here. I attribute the success of my case to Jeff and his firm. They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process. Thank you!”
