Fighting for the Victims of Tractor-Trailer Crashes in Lower Paxton Township
Tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers are the largest vehicles on Pennsylvania highways. They weigh between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds, demanding operators who are both alert and highly-skilled. The sheer weight of a truck demands a driver who is responsible, quick-thinking, and experienced. Unfortunately, who should be behind the wheel doesn’t match who often is behind the wheel.
The Lower Paxton Township truck accident attorneys at Handler, Henning & Rosenberg have held truckers and carriers responsible for the accidents they cause—many of which were caused by a lack of experience, a lack of care, or the use of drugs or alcohol. If you were injured or lost a loved one due to the actions of a negligent driver or trucking company, we want to help you hold them accountable. More importantly, we want to help you get the support you need to pay for medical care, funeral expenses, lost wages, and everything else you’ll need to move forward.

Drunk Truck Driver Kills 3 & Injures 7 in Lower Paxton Township
Recent news reports revealed that a trucker who caused an 11-vehicle crash that killed 3 people, including an 18-month-old girl, was drunk at the wheel. He has since been charged with vehicular homicide, DUI, and other crimes and held without bail. The accident occurred on I-83 and happened when traffic slowed down in a construction zone. The trucker did not slow in time, crushing multiple vehicles in the left lane.
Accidents like this are not just caused by individuals. The trucking industry has long denied its responsibility for truckers’ safety violations despite being responsible for the training, equipping, and educating of those same negligent drivers. Ultimately, it’s in the hands of carriers and insurers to keep dangerous drivers off the road. If they fail, we’re the ones who pay the price.
