Information for Roadway Accident Victims and Their Families
Large commercial trucks are a fixture on our roadways and instrumental to our economy, but these vehicles and their drivers are heavily regulated for good reason. As you may have tragically discovered, a delivery truck accident or one involving an 18-wheeler, garbage truck or tour bus creates a much greater likelihood of catastrophic injury or fatality than other types of motor vehicle crashes.
At Reiff & Bily in Philadelphia, we have successfully taken on and defeated many powerful opponents in negotiations and litigation over the past several decades. Our lawyers are impeccably prepared to enlist the right expert resources, thoroughly investigate what caused your accident with a delivery truck or other commercial vehicle, and take aggressive action targeting the full financial compensation you need.

Uncovering Negligence by Companies and Commercial Vehicle Operators
A high percentage of serious trucking and other commercial vehicle accidents are caused by driver fatigue, drunk driving, operating a vehicle while under the influence of controlled substances, texting or chatting on a cell phone while driving, sleep apnea, improper vehicle maintenance, defective product design, avoidance of safety regulations and other forms of negligence. In addition to going the distance to demonstrate the full impact and costs of your injuries or losses, our lawyers are dedicated to exposing and leveraging factors such as:
- Falsified inspection certificates and other indicators of failure to keep vehicles in road-worthy condition — including operation with worn tires, faulty brakes, or other dangerous parts
- Truck driver fatigue, intoxication or physical problems such as sleep apnea that could have been detected through proper background checks
Trucking companies and other corporations operating fleets of commercial vehicles all too often put profit above public safety. Shortcuts and corruption put innocent people at risk every day, and our legal team is devoted to taking the strongest available action for accident victims who often must deal with life-changing head and brain, spinal cord, neck, back and limb injuries.
