General Accidents and Trucking Accidents

Being involved in a motor vehicle accident often involves legal issues beyond “the right of way”, including regulations applicable to commercial carriers, shippers and haulers, fleet maintenance and training, and catastrophic personal injury.

The O’Meara Law Firm, PC has substantial experience litigating cases involving drivers and passengers injured in trucking accidents throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Experienced Commercial Vehicle Accidents Lawyer

The right commercial motor vehicle accident attorney understands the laws and regulations that pertain to the operation of a commercial vehicle. Regulations that come into play during an auto accident investigation with a commercial vehicle include:

  • Proper reporting of maintenance
  • Accurate reporting of goods being hauled
  • Issues with driver safety records or certifications
  • Inspections of vehicles

Attorney Anita O’Meara has defended trucking companies, shippers and haulers, construction companies, retailers, and other business entities in commercial vehicle and trucking-related accidents. Ms. O’Meara has extensive knowledge of the laws and regulations governing the trucking industry, including personal injury, property damage and environmental impact concerns.

Commercial vs Civilian Auto Accidents

Knowing regulations does not ensure a successful defense of a commercial driver or an individual involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle.

To be successful in a trucking accident case, a legal team must also have experience in obtaining all the necessary records to tell the whole story of how an accident came to take place.

The O’Meara Law Firm, PC is that legal team. The O’Meara team will secure vehicle maintenance and inspection records, company manuals and driver logs to develop the entire picture and build a well-rounded case.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Auto Accidents Attorney for Truckers

Pennsylvania law demands higher levels of maintenance and safety for commercial vehicles and drivers than for civilian vehicles and drivers. Businesses that fail to keep well-maintained fleets and thoroughly inspect driver backgrounds risk problems that can put their business at stake.

Accidents do happen, though, and when accidents happen, the only one who should pay is the responsible party.
