A: A lot of trucking company background information is available to the public at state and federal government offices and on the Internet. One source of public information is the website for the Federal Highway Administration's Safety and Fitness Electronic Records System (SAFER).  You can visit this site at www.safersys.org and obtain a free profile of any federally licensed motor carrier, including a complete background about the trucking company and its insurance coverage.

If you or someone you love has been involved in a tractor trailer accident or some other large truck accident, you may want to get an estimate of the value of your case to ensure you're being treated fairly by the insurance company or you may want help investigating your semi-trailer accident case to ensure that responsibility for the accident is appropriately placed.  You may want to speak with an experienced northwest Pennsylvania truck accident lawyer. Most Erie injury lawyers offer free consults so it shouldn't cost you anything just to speak with someone.
