Some of the Million Dollar Recoveries for Thomas, Conrad & Conrad clients injured by tractor trailers.
- Lehigh County $1.3 million recovery
- Monroe County $1,050,000.00 recovery
- Philadelphia County $4.5 million recovery
- After taking over the representation of a new client in 2017 who was being represented by a Philadelphia personal injury attorney, T,C&C obtained a settlement well in excess of the amount the prior attorney had recommended that the client accept. Specifically, the highest settlement offer before T,C&C’s involvement was $175,000.00 which the Philadelphia County attorney was recommending to be accepted as a settlement in full of all the client’s claims. This client refused to take his prior attorneys advice and instead retained Thomas, Conrad and Conrad. Once T,C&C became involved, in less than one year’s time, they were able to recover the $300,000.00 policy limits from the at fault tractor trailer driver, $100,000.00 from the underinsured coverage of the client’s girlfriend’s vehicle which he was driving at the time of the accident, and then an additional $50,000.00 from our client’s own automobile insurance for his vehicle not even involved in the crash.
- Within the last few months, Attorney Conrad has taken yet another commercial truck accident case to trial in Lehigh County only to once again obtain a substantial recovery in the amount of $670,000.00 for his client who had suffered significant injuries but was back to work and exercising in less than one year’s time.

Differences Between 18-Wheeler Accidents and Car Accidents
While truck and car accidents have some similarities, they also have many distinct differences, which makes it important for your attorney to have experience with cases involving semi-trucks. One of the biggest differences is that trucks are governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act, which focuses on the inspection and maintenance of commercial trucks, the type and amount of cargo that can be hauled, and the level of fatigue experienced by the driver. In cases regarding negligent truck drivers, most trucks are equipped with “black boxes” that can assist with the investigation. In addition, an 18-wheeler striking a standard vehicle can result in substantial property damage and greater injury, putting more at stake in these cases.
