Truck Accidents Lawyers in Northeast PA

Five Things You Need To Know About Truck Accidents

At MHK Attorneys, we offer the sound legal advice and full-service representation you need to protect yourself and your family after a truck accident. We will settle for nothing less than an outcome that fully compensates you for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, wage loss and other damages.

1. The Trucking Company Is Already Taking Action To Avoid Responsibility

As you consider contacting an attorney, the trucking company already has its investigators on the scene looking for ways to deny responsibility for your injury. You need an attorney on your side to hold the company accountable.

2. Most Truck Accidents Are The Result Of Negligence

Common causes of truck accidents include speeding, inattentive driving, lack of sleep, improperly trained drivers and poorly maintained vehicles. At MHK Attorneys, we take on negligent individuals and companies such as truck drivers, trucking companies, and their insurers.

3. Truck Accidents Result In Extensive and Expensive Injuries

A tractor-trailer used to haul cargo safely to its intended destination is a wonderful tool of commerce. A negligently maintained, loaded or operated tractor-trailer is a weapon capable of destroying lives. Life-altering injuries such as those to the brain and spinal cord cost thousands — even millions — of dollars to recover from.

That is why you need the help of MHK Attorneys: to make sure that any verdict or settlement truly covers your needs now and in the future. From your initial medical bills and property damage to lifelong care or therapy, we will make sure you are covered.

4. The Insurance Company Did Not Get Rich By Writing Checks

When you pick up the phone or answer the door, the insurance adjuster may seem friendly or even helpful. It is in your best interest to look past the surface and follow the money. The insurance company is in no hurry to do the right thing for you, and any settlement it offers will only be in its interest. An experienced lawyer from our Monroe County firm will look out for you and handle all interactions with the insurance company.

5. The Playing Field Is Not Level If You Do Not Know The Rules

Insurance companies and their lawyers have made a career out of defending negligent truck drivers and trucking companies. They know all the ins and outs of the system. To level the playing field, you need an experienced advocate on your side.
