The sheer size and weight of an 18-wheeler makes it a formidable and altogether deadly weapon. Add to that a truck driver who refuses to take a break or is carrying a dangerously large load. It is a recipe for disaster — an invitation for severe injury or wrongful death.
At the Easton Law Offices of Edward P. Shaughnessy, we handle truck accident cases involving serious injuries and even death. If you have been involved in a truck crash or lost a loved one in a fatal trucking accident, you may have the right to pursue a legal claim. With more than 25 years of personal injury practice, including extensive experience in the area of truck accidents, we can help you seek the compensation you need to move forward.
Carefully Investigating All Aspects Of Your Injury
The complicated rules and regulations established by the trucking industry take truck vehicle accident cases to an elevated legal level. The investigation of a truck or commercial accident is detailed and lengthy. Evidence and documents must be carefully preserved. The process can be extremely complex.
Investigating a truck accident and determining the extent of liability requires extensive experience and sharp legal insight. Lead attorney, Edward P. Shaughnessy, does not hesitate to retain experts to assist him in complicated truck accident cases.
Our team of semitruck crash experts includes:
- Retired police officers in the city and state level
- Highway engineers
- An accident forensics specialist who is a former employee of PennDOT
To establish liability in your truck accident case, Mr. Shaughnessy and our roster of experts will review driving records, criminal records and, most importantly, data from the “black box” that will show the rate of speed, braking and any extreme turns.
