Many cities and towns in Pennsylvania offer public transportation. Whether a person is a tourist that does not know his or her way around, a daily commuter or a person that just needs a lift, taking the bus is a common way to get from place to place in the Keystone State. While certainly an efficient mode of transportation, people may not be aware of the danger they may be in, especially in the event of a truck accident.
Recently, a bus full of passengers was making its way around downtown Pittsburgh. Suddenly, a dump truck slammed into the rear of the bus. When authorities arrived on the scene, they found that at least five people had suffered injury.
A truck accident can cause serious injuries to many people. Large trucks have the potential to cause a whole lot of damage to other people and vehicles. When a truck accident occurs, a victim may want to take action, but it might be difficult to know where to begin.
When a Pennsylvania truck accident causes injury to a victim, the victim may feel overwhelmed. Physical pain and suffering may be compounded by matters such as medical bills, loss of wages due to inability to work, insurance matters and/or damage to personal property. Fortunately, a victim can choose to consult an experienced attorney. An attorney can help a client hold the party that caused the crash accountable in a court of law, and help a victim use the legal process to pursue recovery of any monetary damages to which he or she may be entitled.
