Pittsburgh truck accident involves baby stroller

A trucking company that has been doing business in Pittsburgh has been involved in at least three fatal crashes during the last two-years as well as 28 crashes involving injuries. Just recently, one of its trucks drove over a curb and struck a stroller holding a baby boy. The boy was taking to a Pittsburgh hospital where he is undergoing surgery. The mother of the baby boy was also slightly injured in the accident.

These types of pedestrian accidents are unfortunately all too common. Though the trucking company has been involved in more than its share of accidents, the safety rating for the company is actually above the national average. However, the safety record is due in part to the trucking company taking more trucks out of service that have failed inspection and may not be due to the safety practices of its drivers.

In any case, the cause of this accident will still need to be determined. Law firms can provide their own investigations of matters and locate and interview witnesses in a timely manner. Law firms can also keep local and state authorities engaged concerning follow-up of the incident in question. Also, law firms can assure relatives and loved ones that their concerns are being taken seriously.

Though trucking companies provide a vital service for our cities, these same companies must abide by a variety of safety concerns. Accidents involving 18-wheelers often turn out to be deadly. Often the only incentive for such companies to improve their safety procedures is through the threat of lawsuits that will hold responsible parties accountable for accidents.
