Truck Accidents

Considering that trucks can weigh in excess of 40 tons, truck accidents can result in much more devastating injuries than the average car accident.

In addition, legally speaking, 18-wheeler wrecks are more complex than the average motor vehicle accident, because there are more sources of potential liability. The driver, the owner of the tractor or trailer, the warehouse that loaded the truck, and the shop that maintained may all share responsibility for the accident.

We represent many clients who were injured in truck accidents, with causes including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Alcohol or drug use (DWI/DUI)
  • Improper lane changes
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Improper loading
  • And more

Regardless of the cause of the accident, the attorneys at Dansky | Katz | Ringold | York pursue all possible sources of potential liability to maximize the amount of damages our clients receive.
If you or a loved one were injured in a trucking accident, please contact us today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluations.

 

Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries

While motorcycles are growing in popularity, the number of motorcycle accidents is growing at an even faster rate. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the fatality rate of motorcycle accidents nationwide more than doubled between 1997 and 2005.

In 2013 alone, 4,668 motorcyclists died as a result of accidents: 56 of those deaths were in New Jersey and 182 were in Pennsylvania. Many more motorcyclists were seriously injured as a result of motor vehicle crashes.

Accidents involving motorcycles frequently lead to extremely serious injuries and death because of the negligence of other drivers. Those in larger vehicles often say they did not see a motorcyclist or, in many unfortunate cases, they simply were not looking.

Motorcyclists are also at risk of injury from dangerous and defective highways. An improperly banked curve, potholes, an uneven road surface, or debris on the road can all cause a motorcycle crash.

Because of the lack of protective features, motorcycle accident victims are at a higher risk for serious injuries and wrongful death. These injuries can range from broken bones, burns, and internal injuries to catastrophic injuries involving the victim’s brain and spinal cord.

At Dansky | Katz | Ringold | York, we have a long and successful history of representing motorcycle accident victims and their survivors. In whichever way you were injured in or lost a loved one to a motorcycle accident, our attorneys can assist you in receiving compensation for the damages.
