Semis, 18-wheelers, big-rigs, or tractor trailers – it doesn’t matter what you call them, they are massive; they are heavy; they are powerful – and they cause serious damage when smaller vehicles become involved in an accident with them – welcome to Georgelis Injury Law Firm!
It is here where you can experience hope and optimism if you or a family member were injured in an 18-wheeler accident. Our clients in Lancaster, PA have come to know the caliber of our award-winning law firm. Winning cases – time and time again – has allowed our Pennsylvania clients to receive maximum financial compensation. Even though lives can be permanently altered – physically, mentally, socially, and financially with truck-related injuries – insurance companies will fight, at every turn, to reduce accident victims’ chances of receiving the financial compensation they are rightfully owed.
Without powerhouse truck-accident attorneys on one’s side, injured victims face a challenge they don’t count on – battling insurance companies who are more concerned with their bottom financial line than they are the health and livelihood of injured truck accident victims. Immediately following a commercial trucking accident, the truck driver’s employer and its insurance company are circling the wagons. They know that, when evidence is concerned, time is of the essence. All of the physical evidence from a truck accident scene – including the truck itself – must be preserved and examined to create an accurate picture of how the accident occurred and what, exactly, caused the accident. There are a lot of nooks and crannies involved when navigating Pennsylvania’s Motor Vehicle Code and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, and having the best truck accident lawyers in Lancaster by your side from the outset can mean all of the difference in the world.
Through delay tactics, low-ball settlement offers, and claim denials, insurance companies minimize financial compensation any way they can for 18-wheeler accident victims – don’t let this happen to you! When you have Georgelis Injury Law Firm on your side, you can place your trust and your concerns on our shoulders. We will tackle the insurance companies for you and fight for every dime you deserve!
Our Law Firm Leaves No Stone Unturned
Our law firm’s goal is to seek the truth behind every 18-wheel accident, and that requires a great deal of investigating and prodding. We utilize police reports, medical reports, a semi’s black-box information and a host of other evidentiary resources to build a strong and persuasive claim for you. As truck-accident attorneys, we don’t rest until we have obtained every penny our Lancaster, PA truck accident clients deserve for their lost wages, out-of-pocket medical expenses, scarring and disfigurement and pain and suffering.
At Georgelis Injury Law Firm, our tractor-trailer accident attorneys will utilize all of the necessary resources to maximize your recovery. This is vital, since employers and insurance company representatives and adjusters use a variety of means necessary to diminish, delay, or fully deny victims’ financial recoveries.
Here are a couple of examples… The commercial trucking company and its insurance company usually involve their attorneys immediately after an accident causing serious bodily injury. They do this for many reasons, all geared toward minimizing or eradicating their liability or reducing the monetary damages they rightfully owe you and your family. Once the “big guns” are involved, they bring in experts to reconstruct the accident and render opinions to support their driver’s version of events, not yours.
At Georgelis Law, we do not accept settlement offers unless they fully compensate our clients and their families for injuries and losses. Under our watchful eye, our Lancaster, PA patrons will not fall victim to the tactics utilized by the insurance industry!

18-Wheeler Accidents Abound
Thousands of big-truck accidents occur on Pennsylvania roads every year. The following represent the most common:
An 18-Wheeler Accident W/Other Vehicles
When an accident takes place that involves an 18-wheeler, you can count on the insurance company to waste no time figuring how it will limit what it will pay. Whether your car, SUV, or pick-up truck was hit by a big rig, our accident lawyers will utilize their knowledge of, and experience with, the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations as they, powerfully and persuasively, build and present your case.
The bottom-line objective is to ensure you receive the fair and comprehensive compensation you are due. Our truck-accident lawyers will include any possible ‘black box’ evidence from the vehicle, and this could, dramatically, benefit your case!
An 18-Wheeler Accident W/Bicycles & Motorcycles
Were you on a bicycle or motorcycle when an 18-wheeler hit you? If so, you need to call our law firm, right away. Accidents can involve speeding, faulty road conditions, or a semi veering into a designated bicycle lane, causing a collision. Fighting for the rights of Lancaster, PA clients is our business, and we will fight for you! Call us!
An 18-Wheeler Accident W/Pedestrians
Being a pedestrian is, by default, dangerous since vehicles are whizzing by in close proximity to people jogging or walking through crosswalks, standing on street corners, or strolling on sidewalks. If you were injured as a pedestrian by a semi-truck, the possible at-fault driver must be held accountable and the insurance company or companies will know our law firm means business!
Be aware, however, that the Pennsylvania statute-of-limitations limits the amount of time you can legally file a claim to receive compensation for loss of income, medical bills, loss of previous lifestyle, and more. Give our team a call to discuss your situation!
An 18-Wheeler Accident W/Distracted Driving
Distracted driving has become an increasingly hazardous issue since mobile-phone usage is, often, performed while drivers are behind the wheel. If a semi-truck driver was on a mobile phone just before the accident occurred with you, we will secure electronic data/evidence within the phone that could promote the defense of your case. Also, a semi-truck’s ‘black box’ could reveal a treasure trove of details that could prove negligence on the part of the truck’s driver and/or the company that owns the truck, as well as other critical evidence.
