Common Causes of Truck Accidents

- Inexperienced drivers or unfamiliarity with roads
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Improperly secured cargo
- Poorly maintained trucks
- Poor road conditions
- Defective truck parts
- Distracted driving
- Untrained drivers
- Driver negligence

That's why you need an experienced truck accidnet lawyer in Wilkes-Barre on your side.

Common Truck Accident Injuries
Accidents involving trucks, such as semi-trucks, delivery trucks, or box trucks, are often extremely serious and can cause devastating injuries. This is because trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds and travel at high speeds. When they collide with smaller vehicles, such as motorcycles or cars, severe injuries can occur.
Common injuries include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, whiplash, and more. As your representative, the Wilkes-Barre truck accident lawyers at Metzger Wickersham will work relentlessly to help you determine who is responsible for your losses.
