Standing Up for Truck Injury Victims
Along I-95, the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Turnpikes, Route 76 and I-295, accidents involving semis and 18-wheelers are common occurrences. A collision with a large truck usually causes serious or catastrophic injuries. If you or a family member was injured in a trucking accident, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to protect your rights. Even if you do not think the truck driver was at fault, speak with a lawyer before you settle your claim.
At the law offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we represent truck accident injury victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death claims. Our experience with all types of car and truck accidents means that we know how to fight the trucking company for the compensation you deserve.

Special Considerations of Trucking Accidents
Because passenger vehicles cannot withstand the size and weight of a commercial truck, injuries from these accidents may be catastrophic or fatal. We have experience with injury claims involving spinal injuries, brain injuries, broken bones and amputations, and burns and disfigurement. When injuries are this serious, you will need compensation to cover extensive medical treatment that may include long-term care. In wrongful death cases, we will also argue for funeral expenses and additional compensation to provide for the family in the future.
One of the most critical parts of a trucking accident case is the battle with the trucking company's insurance carrier. Most companies immediately dispatch an accident response team to the scene. Its job is to protect the company from exposure and expense, which means proving the accident was not the truck driver's fault.
We will combat their tactics by investigating the accident, reviewing driver logs for mile and hour violations, reviewing safety maintenance records for the vehicle and checking into the driver's record. Our lawyers know how to negotiate with insurance companies and are prepared to go to trial if negotiations are not sufficient.
We are experienced litigators who have a record of success. For a free consultation with our Trenton, New Jersey, truck accident lawyers, call us in Philadelphia at 215-437-3058 or in New Jersey at 609-257-4976.
