Trucking companies cannot escape liability when their own actions, or the actions of their drivers, cause innocent motorists serious harm. At the Ammons Law Firm, our team of trained truck accident attorneys can help you recover fair compensation after an accident involving the Penske Logistics trucking company.
This will not come without a fight, however. Penske Logistics is a multi-national conglomerate with substantial resources and legal firepower.

We won’t let this happen to you. Our strong track record of success is a testament to our commitment to our clients and their cases. With our help, you will receive the compensation you are entitled to under the law.
When is Penske Logistics Responsible for a Truck Crash?
After a truck accident involving a Penske Logistics truck, you may be wondering if the company is responsible for the harm you have suffered. This is a complicated question that requires an investigation by trained truck accident attorneys.
The Penske Logistics trucking company is responsible for a truck crash when the crash is caused by its negligence. This can take the form of corporate negligence, such as failure to inspect and maintain the truck, or negligence on the part of its employee driver, such as running a stop sign.
As soon as possible following a truck accident with the Penske Logistics trucking company, it is vital to begin gathering evidence of the cause of the crash and investigating the actions of Penske Logistics and its employee driver. The information gathered through this detailed investigation is an integral part of the claim.
To hold Penske Logistics responsible for your crash and be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered in the crash, you must prove through evidence that the actions of Penske or its driver were the cause of the crash and that the actions of either party were negligent.
Even the most basic accidents can be complicated. This is in large part because Penske Logistics has a team of trained attorneys that litigate truck accident cases every day. The job of Penske’s lawyers is to shift the blame anywhere it can away from Penske. Trucking company lawyers will blame you, the road, acts of god, third parties, and anything else. If successful, your right to recovery may be lost, and the cost of your injuries will not be covered by the wrongdoer. It is vital that this does not happen to you, and we work tirelessly to make sure it doesn’t.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Truck Accident with Penske Logistics?
Under personal injury law, you are entitled to compensation equal to the damages you have suffered. Demonstrating the amount of damages you have suffered requires skilled advocacy. For instance, under the law, you are entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering experienced because of your injuries. However, valuing pain and suffering is complex and speculative. No set formula values pain.
Your attorney will play a significant role in maximizing your damages because your lawyer’s advocacy largely dictates the value of your damages. Two lawyers can have the same exact case, and one will settle the claim for many times more than the other. This is because one lawyer is a better advocate.
At the Ammons Law Firm, our truck accident attorneys have over 400 verdicts and settlements of over $1,000,000. When trucking companies face us, they know they must settle for full damages, or we will take them to trial, where we have a demonstrated history of record-setting verdicts. That is not a risk most trucking companies are willing to take.
