Truck Accident in Schuylkill & Berks County
Heavy truck, bus and other commercial traffic is a fact of life on I-78, I-81, the Pennsylvania Turnpike, Route 222, Route 422, and the other state and interstate highways that cross Berks or Schuylkill County. All too often, it is also a factor in serious and fatal accidents, especially when drivers don’t follow speed limits, laws requiring mandatory sleep breaks, or regulations to prevent oversized loads. Our accident attorneys understand the devastating impact these tragedies have on the individual victims and their families in the Reading, Pottsville and Philadelphia areas and throughout PA. To build your case our team of Pennsylvania accident lawyers might add professional investigators, photographers, engineers (to perform accident reconstructions) and other experts to our legal team. Our attorneys have decades of experience investigating injury claims throughout Pennsylvania, including the Reading and Philadelphia PA areas. In a number of cases our lawyers have found the blame to include PennDOT or municipalities responsible for highway maintenance and design.
If you or a family member has been in an accident involving a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle in Reading, Pottsville, Philadelphia or somewhere else in Pennsylvania, you will probably be contacted by their insurance adjuster and/or trucking company. They might try to convince you that the accident was your fault or try to get a statement from you that they might be able to use against you. This is why it is important to contact Liever, Hyman & Potter’s truck accident lawyers as soon as possible. One of our experienced lawyers will be immediately available to protect your case, guide you through the entire process, and will deal directly with the insurance companies.
We’ve won numerous awards and settlements for victims of vehicle accidents, including many multi-million dollar ones. You’ll pay us no money — not a cent — until we recover money for you, after which our contingent fee will be based on a percentage of the award or settlement that will be clearly defined in the initial agreement to represent you. Unlike most other law firms, our agreement says that you will not have to repay any of the expenses that we may have advanced on your behalf unless we recover money for you.
