Philadelphia Distracted Truck Driver Accident Attorney
Despite a national ban on texting and driving while driving commercial vehicles by Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood in 2010, some truck drivers continue to use their cell phones behind the wheel. According to a 2009 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 8% of large truck drivers involved in fatal truck accidents were distracted while driving, 29% of whom were distracted by a cell phone.
Your safety on Pennsylvania roads depends on truck drivers obeying state and national distracted driving laws. But if you have been injured in a truck accident resulting from a distracted truck driver, you should seek the help of an experienced attorney to help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
Distracted Truck Driver Accident Compensation
Injuries from a semi truck accident can be severe and require extensive treatment and rehabilitative treatment. If a distracted truck driver was the cause of your accident-related injuries, you may be eligible to collect compensation for:
- Medical expenses, including:
- Emergency care
- Prescription drugs
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If you lost a loved one because of a distracted truck driver, an attorney may help you pursue compensation to recover lost earnings, retirement and medical benefits and loss of companionship.
Fighting for Compensation
Although Pennsylvania personal injury laws may entitle you to seek compensation, collecting it will not be easy. You must first prove a distracted truck driver’s liability for the accident. An attorney can help you investigate the accident and collect evidence to build an effective case.
An experienced distracted truck driver accident attorney can also be invaluable in fighting insurance companies who may be unreasonably delaying, denying or undervaluing your truck accident claim.
