Harrisburg Truck Accident Lawyers

Fighting for 18-Wheeler Crash Victims in Harrisburg & Beyond

Truck accidents are the most devastating events that occur on Pennsylvania roads. During 2017, there were 274 heavy truck accidents in Dauphin County alone. Roughly one-third of these accidents resulted in an injury, and 19 of them resulted in a life-changing or fatal injury. While Harrisburg's truck fatality rate has improved in recent years, the region's overall crash rate remains far too high—especially given the low population density of the county. Per capita, we're facing more fatalities and injuries than we should.

The injuries caused by big rig collisions include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Fractures
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries

One of the reasons is sheer size—large trucks weigh between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds. Next to a 4,000-pound commuter car, trucks have an enormous weight advantage. However, the other reason is the trucking industry culture. Drivers are incentivized to drive for long hours, pushing themselves to sleep less and haul more to make ends meet. It's a punishing job, and motorists and truck drivers both pay the price. Of the 5,000+ people who will die in trucking accidents this year, 700 of them are truckers themselves.
