If you or a family member are dealing with injuries related to a tractor-trailer accident, we are here to be your powerful legal advocate and guide you through the maze of legal intricacies involved. This all revolves around uncovering the facts, seeking justice, and securing maximum financial compensation.
Tractor trailers are motorized behemoths. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, every year in the US, approximately 50,000 of them are involved in accidents. More specifically, Lancaster County ranks among the top five Pennsylvania counties for the most truck accidents, every year, in the state.
Injuries resulting from tractor-trailer accidents are especially devastating due to these vehicles’ enormous sizes and weights. If you’ve been involved in this type of accident, you might be asking yourself: “Will I be able to return to work? Is my mobility permanently altered? Do I need a law firm to help me?”
Some answers may not be crystal-clear at this point, but one answer is clear: Yes, you do need a tractor-trailer accident law firm to help you, and the reasons will soon become very obvious! Georgelis Injury Law Firm is industry-recognized and award-winning. We will leave no legal stone unturned as we counteract insurance companies’ efforts to keep your money in their pockets!
What to Know About Insurance Companies
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.
If you do not have a top-notch truck accident attorney involved on your behalf, from the get-go, the employer and insurance carrier can perform these tasks unchecked, and you could lose your chance to procure and test very valuable evidence. The best truck accident attorneys know how to promptly and fully conduct these accident investigations, including garnering witness statements, advising the commercial trucking company to preserve any and all video footage, documentation and other material evidence that could disappear over time and bringing the necessary experts aboard to conduct the proper analyses of the accident scene and the commercial vehicle that was involved in the collision.
Our law firm, exhaustively, prepares for every case. We do not accept settlement offers unless they fully compensate our clients and their families for injuries and losses. Under our watch, you can rest assured you will not fall into any traps set by the insurance company.

Tractor-Trailer Accidents and Other Vehicles
When an accident takes place that involves a tractor-trailer, you can bet the commercial trucking company and insurance carrier will be working quickly to figure out how they will limit what they will pay. Whether your car, SUV, or pick-up truck was hit by a semi, our accident lawyers will utilize their commanding knowledge of the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Code and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations as they, authoritatively, present your case.
Our tractor-trailer attorneys will conduct a thorough inspection of the accident scene and truck involved in the accident, making sure to preserve all of the evidence that help build a strong and persuasive claim to recover for your losses, damages and pain and suffering.
Tractor-Trailer Accidents and Bicycles & Motorcycles
Were you on a bicycle or motorcycle when a tractor-trailer hit you? If so, you need to call our law firm, right away. Accidents can involve speeding, faulty road conditions, a semi veering into a designated bicycle lane, and other causative factors.
The real issue is making sure you receive the monetary recovery you are due! Fighting for the rights of Lancaster, PA clients is our business, and we will fight for you! Give us a call!
Tractor-Trailer Accidents and Pedestrians
Being a pedestrian is, inherently, dangerous since moving vehicles are in close proximity to people jogging through crosswalks, standing on street corners, or strolling on sidewalks next to busy thoroughfares.
If you were injured as a pedestrian, the at-fault driver must be held accountable and the insurance company must be firmly dealt with to ensure they do not succeed in minimizing your financial recovery.
Be aware, however, that the Pennsylvania statute-of-limitations dictates 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 tractor-trailer accident law firm a call to discuss your situation!
Tractor-Trailer Accidents and Distracted Drivers
Distracting driving has taken on a disturbing dimension since illegal mobile-phone usage has become so common with drivers behind the wheel. If a tractor-trailer driver was on a mobile phone just before your accident occurred, we can uncover the proof by utilizing mobile phone data that could bolster your case. Additionally, any video footage or ‘black box’ data could reveal a treasure trove of details that could prove negligence, or even recklessness, on the part of the semi-truck driver or the company that owns the truck.
