An accident involving a tractor trailer, bus or other commercial vehicle can cause serious physical injuries such as paralysis, whiplash, burns, intense back pain, broken bones, brain injuries or even death.
The road to recovery can be painful and cause many people to lose time at work, or lose their jobs completely, not to mention create a pile of medical bills.
If you or your loved one has been seriously injured or killed as a result of a commercial truck, bus or vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical injuries or emotional distress suffered. Our Pittsburgh Injury Lawyers can help.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), truck accidents are the fault of negligent truck drivers more often than they are caused by other factors, such as poor weather or road conditions. In addition, of accidents caused by a negligent truck driver, 44% involved a trucker who was taking over-the-counter drugs or prescription medication.

Several parties could potentially be responsible for the cause of a truck or commercial vehicle accident, which is why it takes an experienced legal team to get to the source of the problem. Depending on the cause of the accident, any of the following parties could be found responsible:
Because so many different parties could be involved, the insurance companies of each of these parties will blame the other party. This is why it is important to have experienced and aggressive attorneys on your side, like SMA Law Group, who will fight to ensure that the responsible party is held accountable.
