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.

  • Outcome of the case was the best possible under the circumstances.

    “Very professional and upfront. Reviewed the facts of my case with me in a realistic manner and gave me excellent advice. Did not push hiring the firm on me but let me know exactly what I needed to do if I chose to have her firm represent me. Outcome of the case was the best possible under the circumstances. Well done and thank you!”

  • You really did make a "federal case" of my situation!

    “Elisabeth, You are the best! I can't express how upset I was when I discovered that my builder committed fraud and lied to me about the quality and condition of my new house. It was a huge investment for me and he put me in a bad financial situation. I was cautiously hopeful when you told me you could help. When you got me a judgment for $130,000 plus- three times the amount of my damages- I was amazed! Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication. You really did make a "federal case" of my situation! With the money you won for me, I can finally enjoy my home. P.P.”

    “Our experience with Shaffer & Engle was beyond our expectations. Elisabeth is absolutely an amazing attorney! We were expecting to get about a 50% reduction in our case, but she surpassed that and got BOTH of the traffic tickets completely thrown out! Saving us from a driver's license suspension of up to 18 months long! She's spectacular! We recommend Shaffer & Engle to everyone and anyone, even if you are unsure if you have a case. Just ask them, they will explain all of your options and in plain English so that it makes sense to you! Elisabeth is unlike any attorney we have ever met. Very open, honest and down-to- earth......she speaks her mind freely and loudly! It gave us a more comfortable feeling having her represent us and our case! Again, Thank you so much Elisabeth, we greatly appreciate all you did for us! We will call Shaffer & Engle first for all of our future legal matters!”
