Pittsburgh Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys

An accident involving a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler usually involves serious injuries or even wrongful death. Recovery from an accident could take weeks, months or even years. The pain and debilitation can forever change peoples’ lives and cause them to lose their jobs and completely rebuild their lives.

If you or your loved one were the victim of a serious injury, or wrongful death involving a tractor trailer accident, you may be able to collect compensation for injuries, as well as pain and suffering and lost wages.

Tractor-trailers are one of the leading causes of serious injuries and fatal accidents on highways.

In many instances tractor-trailer drivers do not take the proper precautions to avoid accidents. The U.S. Department of Transportation has regulations that truckers must follow when operating their vehicles and if they fail to follow these rules or violate traffic rules, you may be eligible to collect compensation for your injuries.

Likewise, many semi-truck accidents are also caused by the trucking company who may be working the truck drivers too many hours. This could be in violation of the U.S. Department of Transportation laws.

A driver’s negligence should NOT be your responsibility.

That is why the personal injury attorneys at SMT Legal are aggressive in their fight for getting you the money you deserve. Our attorneys are experienced in representing individuals involved in tractor trailers and other motor vehicle accidents.

Causes Of Tractor Trailer Accidents

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), tractor-trailer accidents are the fault of negligent truck drivers more often than they are caused by other factors. Moreover, in accidents caused by a negligent truck driver, 44% involved a trucker who was taking over-the-counter drugs or prescription medication.

Whatever the cause of the accident, our Pittsburgh Personal Injury Lawyers can work to prove who was at fault and how you can get maximum compensation for your injuries. Contact us today.


Our Pittsburgh Attorneys are here to help answer your questions about getting the maximum compensation owed to you, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs and home health care
  • Lost wages
  • Retraining for another profession if you are unable to drive
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Wrongful death

When someone suffers a serious injury, his or her entire family is affected by the catastrophe. Long-term care and chronic pain, as well as depression and a loss of quality of life are enough to deal with: you should not have to worry about how you will pay the effects of the disaster, especially if someone else was at fault for the injury.

At SMT Legal, we will give your case the personal attention you deserve and do everything possible to get the maximum compensation you deserve. We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning there is no fee unless we win compensation for you.

    Types Of Injuries Suffered In Tractor-trailer Accidents

    Our attorneys represent clients who have suffered from any of the following types of injuries due to trucking accidents:

    Who Is At Fault In Tractor-trailer Accidents?

    A semi-truck accident could be caused by any one of several different parties, which is why an experienced legal team can help get to the source of the problem. Any of the following parties could be found responsible:

    • The truck driver
    • The truck company or owner of the truck or trailer or the person or company that the truck was leased from
    • The truck manufacturer or the manufacturer of the faulty equipment
    • The company is responsible for loading the truck’s cargo.

    Because any one of these parties could be involved in the cause of the accident, it is common for the insurance companies of each party to place the blame on the other party.

    This is why it is important to have experienced and aggressive attorneys on your side, like SMT Legal, who will fight to ensure that the responsible party is held accountable.

    If you have been injured in a tractor-trailer accident, call for a free legal case evaluation immediately. The more time that lapses, the more difficult it will be to build a strong and winnable case.
