The average commercial freight truck – “big rig” – can weigh up to 80,000 pounds. That’s about 20 times more than the weight of a passenger vehicle. The damage caused when a truck collides with a passenger car is substantial and can result in serious injury or death. If another person or company was at-fault for a truck accident you were involved in, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
At the Law Office of Michael P. Forbes, I understand the difficulties you may be facing if you were injured in an accident. The injuries you sustained may require medical attention, which can be costly. You might also miss work to receive treatment, which can result in lost pay. I am dedicated to fighting for you to recover fair compensation for the damages you incurred.

When pursuing a claim after an accident, you have to prove that the collision was caused because of someone else’s negligence. A skilled Philadelphia truck accident attorney can conduct an investigation to gather evidence for establishing liability. Depending on the circumstances that led to the accident, the truck driver, truck company, repair shop, and/or the business that loaded the truck’s cargo can be held responsible.
Truck accidents can be caused by many factors, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Improper cargo loading
- Mechanical failure
- Lack of driver training
- Dangerous driving maneuvers
