National Truck Accident Attorneys
Trucking companies go to great lengths to protect themselves from court costs and liability. They have sophisticated legal defense teams, rapid accident response teams, and refuse to take legal responsibility for injuries they cause. They might even try to blame their drivers and take none of the blame themselves. If you have been injured in a truck accident or lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident it is important to work with the experienced, proven truck accident lawyers at Reiff & Bily based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Even when insurance companies offer payments and settlements, they are usually low offers to try and kill cases early for the lowest value possible. They are not looking out for you – only themselves. It is so important, especially if your injuries are severe, to have a legal team that can and will stand up to those of big trucking companies. Reiff and Bily’s The Truck Accident Team is the kind of sophisticated legal team that fights for victims – not big trucking.
When you or a family member has been injured in an accident with a truck, or if you have lost a loved one, we are here to help. We fight across the country to get victims the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Our Team Focuses on Truck Accidents
Other lawyers generally cover personal injury cases, or focus on car crashes, but our truck accident lawyers know practically all there is to know about truck accident cases, in particular. There are rules and regulations that specifically cover truck drivers and trucking companies, and our team has the experience of using these regulations against trucking companies on behalf of our clients.
Trucks are huge, dangerous machines – and our attorneys appreciate that fact. We know that truck accidents can cause greater injuries, and often have tragic results for our victims, and we work with that knowledge.
What Can I Get for My Injuries?
Whether you were fortunate enough to survive an accident with a truck accident with injuries or you lost a loved one to a fatal truck accident, we are here to get you the compensation you deserve. When you are injured, it can be so frustrating to see the person who caused your injuries try and avoid blame. We work to hold the people who hurt our clients responsible for their actions. When a wrongful death occurs in a fatal accident you need experienced truck accident lawyers to protect the interests of your family and hold those responsible financially accountable.
That means we go after every penny we can.
If you have medical bills stacking up, we will fight to get them paid. If you are out of work, we will see that you and your family are provided-for. If you are experiencing physical pain, or suffering mentally and emotionally from your injuries, we will work to get you compensation.
If you lost a loved one in a truck accident, we will do what we can to help you recover. If the deceased was a spouse or parent, we will see that your family continues to be provided-for in their absence. We get clients the financial compensation to cover funeral expenses, but also any other costs they experience because of the loss. That includes things like grief counseling, lost inheritances, lost benefits (such as healthcare), and the loss of companionship. Money can never fill the hole that a lost family member leaves in your life, but it can help take care of your family after their loss.
What Causes Truck Accidents?
Our team of creative thinkers knows exactly where to look for the kind of evidence that wins complicated truck accident cases. Furthermore, we work to create a convincing case that is backed up by hard facts. Confusing puzzle pieces are scattered everywhere, and we know how to find them and put the whole picture together for a jury.
The important evidence often lays buried in driver’s logs, police reports, cell phone records, maintenance records, onboard video and navigation systems, and the truck’s event data recorders – devices similar to an airplane’s “black box.” We also hire experts that can examine crash scenes and reconstruct the accident based on scientific and engineering tools. With this evidence, we hope to make the strongest case we can for our clients.

The STEPS to Beating Big TruckingTo beat big trucking, you need an attorney with intricate knowledge of motor carrier responsibility laws and the State and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations that govern commercial trucking – thousands of pages filled with legal technicalities and subject to frequent updates. We have successfully litigated some of the most complex and demanding cases against the nation's largest commercial trucking companies and vehicle manufacturers. We have an extensive knowledge of federal regulations governing hours of service, weight limits, and the transportation of hazardous cargo. There is no easy pathway to success – but Reiff & Bily's The Truck Accident Team isn't interested in easy routes. We approach each case considering all the angles – negligence, product defect, failure to maintain, design defect, highway defect and component failure.
Advocates for Innocent DriversTruck accidents have devastating consequences – even more so when trucking companies and their drivers injure or kill innocent victims due to misconduct. Because trucking and insurance companies are often more focused on profitability and their corporate interests than innocent victims, it is critical that you find experienced legal counsel with the knowledge and resources to fight for you as soon as possible.
"We literally thought our lives were over. You were the only attorneys who believed in our case."
A Quick Response Builds a Solid CaseCommercial trucking companies' rapid response teams will be called at a moment's notice to appear at the accident scene and obtain every piece of information needed for the defense. Prompt investigation of the accident scene is crucial. There are multiple parties who could be responsible for causing the accident, and any one or all could have acted in violation of state and federal guidelines.
The key is to find the right expert WITNESSES who help create a compelling case.Reiff & Bily's The Truck Accident Team has the resources and knowledge to locate and retain qualified and impartial expert witnesses. During the trial work-up process, we strive to build solid relationships with an outstanding team of experts – accident investigators, medical professionals, safety and trucking specialists, animation crews, bio-mechanical engineers, and others. Often selecting the right expert witnesses who can explain the science, medical basis, and other factors behind the accident is what helps build winning cases. We represent people like you and act immediately to protect all of your interests and make our community safer.
