Philadelphia Truck Accident Lawyer
Over $110 Million in Verdicts & Settlements
Fully-loaded, a semi-truck or big rig may weigh up to 80,000 pounds —
or more with an oversize/overweight vehicle permit. Sharing the road with
these immense trucks can be unsettling, particularly if they drive in
an aggressive or unpredictable manner. Some truck operators seem to care
little for the safety of other drivers when they change lanes or merge
into traffic. Cargo may shift or fall from a vehicle. Truckers may drive
while fatigued or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
