The following is a type of accident involving an 18-wheeler and an automobile that illustrates how deadly they can be.

In a recent accident involving an ordinary motor vehicle and a huge 18-wheeler, Kelly O'Brien, an 18-year old college freshman from Mooresville, New Jersey, was killed when an 18-wheeler overturned on the Pennsylvania Turnpike and killed her. The truck was allegedly carrying 20,000 pounds of soap when it collided with the car and then ran up an embankment and overturned crushing the O'Brien vehicle. O'Beien was pronounced dead at the scene. It took over an hour to reach the O'Brien vehicle that was trapped and crushed beneath the soap-filled trailer of 18-wheeler. In cases like this, it is imperative for a personal injury attorney to gain access to the weigh-station logs to determine is the driver was negligently carrying an unstable load that contributed to the overturned 18-wheeler.

This example shows how unstable an 18-wheeler can become when it is overloaded. An 18-wheeler can weigh 20 to 30 times as much as a car when fully loaded, up to a maximum od 80,000 lbs. If an 18-wheeler is forced to run up a 45-degree embankment it can easily overturn. It can take an 18-wheeler 50% longer to stop than the average automobile and significantly more time if the road conditions are hazardous.  In addition to running up an embankment, or failing to stop in time, another way 18-wheelers cause accidents is when they jack knife.

If you have been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, or if you have had a loved one killed, you can sue the negligent driver, the company they work for or their insurance company for damages. You can seek to recover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Call the Croydon Pennsylvania 18-wheeler accident Law Office of John M. Kenney today.

I thought I could handle my divorce by completing all my forms on my own. Well, I was wrong and the courts couldn't tell me what I did wrong. After 2 years of going back and forth trying to figure out what I did wrong, I decided to hand it over to a professional/lawyer. I found John on a Google search. I was able to get an appointment right away with him. He was able to work around my schedule. John took control of everything and and within 3 weeks my divorce was completed.
