Motorists on Pennsylvania highways are expected to exercise a proper degree of caution and care while using these roadways, but certain unsafe behaviors by drivers can cause crashes involving several vehicles. If an accident involves a commercial truck, there is the possibility that drivers or passengers of other vehicles may be killed. When any driver causes a crash by violating a traffic law or operating his or vehicle negligently, that person is liable to all other people who suffer physical or financial harm because of the irresponsibility.
These types of cases may require extensive investigations, and it is usually the negligent motorist’s insurance company that will be responsible for handling the claims of all parties who sustained harmed in the crash. If the accident was caused by a tractor-trailer, then there are additional lawyers and insurance companies that will be aggressively seeking to limit the compensation paid out to victims. A person who is harmed in one of these kinds of crashes could quickly be offered a settlement that is usually much less than what he or she is actually entitled to—or the insurance company could argue that its client was not at fault and refuse to pay anything at all.
