Handling Trucking Accidents in Easton, Bethlehem, Allentown and the Lehigh Valley into New Jersey
Serving Clients throughout the Lehigh Valley
New Jersey and Pennsylvania roadways are home to major crossroads of commercial traffic. But when truck drivers use these conduits, not all of them abide by the rules of the road or Federal laws regarding safety. Often the truck drivers who are involved in accidents have been speeding, driving without making required rest stops, driving for a longer period than Federal law allows, or in violation of other trucking laws. This is made even more dangerous because of the damage a tractor trailer can do when it collides with a car, or even a SUV or pick-up truck. Often the person in the vehicle which is struck by the tractor-trailer may be maimed or even killed.
At The Margolis Law Firm, we have a comprehensive knowledge of the State and Federal laws which apply in trucking accident injury cases. Steven J. Margolis, Esq. has a long track record of results winning full compensation for people who have suffered serious injuries or lost loved ones due to the careless actions of commercial truck drivers and other motorists.
Truck Accident Injury Cases
Accidents involving tractor-trailers and other large commercial trucks for which a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) is necessary, are governed by Federal laws which will affect the outcome of personal injury suits. At The Margolis Law Firm, Steven J. Margolis, Esq. is fully familiar with the Federal laws applicable to these cases and well able to use these laws to the advantage of our clients in handling trucking injury cases, including instances of:
Driver Fatigue/Overtime Driving
Use of Drugs or Alcohol
Steven J. Margolis, Esq. has successfully handled numerous truck accident cases for people throughout Pennsylvania, helping them recover compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and their pain and suffering. If you have been injured in a tractor-trailer crash or any other type of trucking accident, we will make sure that your voice is heard and that you obtain the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
Fatal Truck Accidents
Due to the size and speed at which commercial trucks are travelling on our highways, when accidents happen, they often result in death. A wrongful death action would then arise, which is filed differently in the courts than a personal injury action. If you have lost a spouse, parent, child, or other loved one due to the carelessness or negligence of a truck driver or trucking company, The Margolis Law Firm can help you obtain the compensation that the law allows for loss of financial support, funeral expenses, and also money the estate may be entitled to. We know that speaking to an attorney may not be your primary concern, but it is important that we have our retained experts review the matter as early as possible to preserve evidence and protect the rights of the family members left behind. Therefore, we are here for you as soon as you are ready to take that necessary action and pursue your rights as well as those of the decedent’s estate.
