Bradford County Truck Accident Lawyer

Table of Contents

    Anyone who has driven through Bradford County can tell you that it is a wonderful place to be. However, driving on these roads or any road in Pennsylvania can be dangerous. Drivers share the roads with trucks, big rigs, 18-wheelers, and other commercial vehicles all of which are generally much larger than your standard car or vehicle. In addition, these larger vehicles are the reason behind many accidents here in Bradford County and throughout the state. When there is an accident between a passenger vehicle, pedestrian, or motorcycle and a tractor-trailer there are likely going to be profound and debilitating injuries.

    Make no mistake that when you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle there are going to be injuries and damages. Insurance companies and those who work for large trucking companies are mainly concerned with keeping their costs down and not worried about the medical bills, pain and suffering, and property damage that you are expected to deal with. That is why if you have been injured in an accident with a tractor-trailer, big rig, 18 wheeler, or commercial vehicle you should call the Truck Accident Team of Reiff Law Firm, who have a team of experienced lawyers who are ready to help you with your case.

    Truck Accidents in Bradford County

    Bradford County is located in the North of Pennsylvania. While this county does not have a very large population with an estimated amount of 62,000 people who call this county home, there are still many reasons why a tractor-trailer may be involved in an accident within this county.  Bradford County is composed of over 14 different boroughs and over twenty-five different townships.  With this many different townships and boroughs located in the county there are going to be many areas that are dangerous for motorists. One of these noted in the news recently is the intersection of Walburn Road in Burlington Township.  Recently there was a crash at this intersection, which claimed the lives of three people. While he crash remains under investigation, police noted that one of the drivers had crossed the center line and struck another vehicle head on. This highlights that even if there isn’t a tractor involved in an accident, accidents are often deadly.  In addition to this area there are many other major highway and roads located in the borders of Bradford County including:

    The major thoroughfares in the Township include:

    • State Route 187
    • US Route 6
    • Mercur Hill Road
    • Route 14
    • Route 6
    • Route 514

    An accident can occur on any of these roads and at any time day or night. Our Truck Accident team of lawyers understands that you probably have many questions and concerns after you have been in an accident, and we have the knowledge and skill to help you through the process of recovery.

    Types of Trucking Accidents

    After years of representing victims of truck accidents throughout Pennsylvania we have found that there are several different types of truck accidents and the events that lead up to them. Sadly, these statistics don’t come from us, but from the knowledge that nearly one and ever seven fatalities on the highway involves a tractor trailer or other commercial driver.

    Driver Exhaustion: Truck drivers often spend long hours on the road, in fact some drivers have been cited for driving in excess of twenty hours without a break. It is plain to see that when a driver is not well rested they can cause an accident. In fact, nearly one out of every five accident fatalities are caused by exhausted drivers who either fell asleep at the wheel or whose fatigue affected their reaction time.  While the Code of Federal Regulations mandates that a commercial driver may not work for 8 continuous hours without taking a break of at least 30 minutes, many drivers are in a rush to meet deadlines and choose to ignore these regulations and drive straight through their breaks. To make their deadlines, drivers often resort to extreme measures such as taking caffeine pills or other drugs in an effort to stay awake. As a result, exhausted and distracted drivers cause scores of accidents every year.

    Driver error – a truck driver making an error is one of the leading causes of an accident. There are thousands of little things that can lead a driver to make an error. From failing to pay attention, to failing to yield or stop at a sign, to texting, to misjudging the distance required to stop. If there is an accident it is common to look at what the driver did to determine if they were in error.

    No matter what the reason for a truck accident, no two truck accidents are the same. They all involve a unique set of facts and individuals. Because an accident is not “cookie cutter” your legal representation shouldn’t be either.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
