Common sense will tell you that every person who takes to the road is at some risk of having a motor vehicle accident. However, there are the fender-benders we are all accustomed to and then there are crashes that result in serious injury or loss of life. Those who face off against large commercial vehicles typically lose the fight, and the consequences are often very severe.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a truck accident in Pennsylvania, you already know these things. Maybe you have even decided to take legal action against the driver and/or company that owns the truck. What you might not know is how important it is for you and your attorney to contribute equally in building an effective partnership.
