OverWeight Trucks Damage our Roads and Cause Accidents – Truck Accident Lawyers

Overweight trucks do a great deal of damage to our road and bridges.  In fact as reported in USATODAY investigators believe that overweight trucks contributed to the bridge collapse last summer in Minneapolis that killed 13 people.Overweight trucks or tractor trailers also cause crashes and wrecks that seriously injure and kill people.  Because the trucks are overweight they are harder to drive and take longer to stop.  Also, it is just a simple law of physics, that when a truck is heavier and it crashes into a car the overweight truck will cause more damages and injuries.

If you were injured in a wreck with a truck or tractor trailer please contact our team of lawyers.  We know how to find out if the trucking company was permitting its drivers to drive overweight trucks, or more hours than permitted by law.  The attorneys at Berger & Lagnese, LLC will find out if your accident was caused because the trucking company was not properly maintaining their trucks.  At Berger & Lagnese, LLC, we handle truck and car crashes in Pittsburgh, Greensburg, Uniontown and throughout the western part of Pennsylvania.  Call us at 412-471-4300 or email us by clicking here.
