Truck Accidents in Pennsylvania 

Truck accidents do not happen as commonly in Pennsylvania as other collisions. However, when they do occur, they tend to lead to some of the most extensive harm. This is due to the fact that tractor-trailers are some of the largest vehicles on our roads that are known for causing catastrophic damage in the event of an accident. In just one recent year’s time in the U.S., over 110,000 people were seriously injured in truck accidents. Pennsylvania is no stranger to these accidents. Thousands of people sustain injuries in Pennsylvania truck accidents every year.
