Attorneys for People Injured in A. Duie Pyle Trucking Accidents
Alexander Duie Pyle found his trucking company in 1924 as an LTL (less than truckload) business that also provided warehousing throughout the Pennsylvania region. Initially, the company operated out of the family home in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. During the first year, the company's revenues top $55,000. The annual revenue in 2018 was $310,000,000. The huge demand for truckers at the beginning of World War II increased the company's profits because of its extensive relationship with Lukens Steel.
By the 1960s, the company relocated to Westchester, Pennsylvania, and constructed two warehouse facilities. In the 1970s, Alexander's grandson announced the company would no longer provide household moving services due to a Teamster strike. During this time, the company's annual growth had risen to over $9 million. In 1994, the company expanded to offering full less than truckload services to 7 other states outside Pennsylvania, including New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and portions of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Virginia.

Common Causes of Semi-truck Crashes
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), many accidents in the United States, including large commercial trucks involve:
- Aggressive Behavior - Aggressively operating a vehicle could result in wrongful death or severe injuries of innocent passengers and motorists.
- Passing a Truck That's Turning - Motors will often pass a truck while it is turning left or right, not realizing the commercial vehicle needs a wide radius that may encroach into other lanes.
- Distracted Driving - There are many distractions inside a commercial vehicle, including quick access to a mobile device, changing the radio station, or looking at a GPS device.
- Driving Under the Influence - Operating a motor vehicle after consuming too much alcohol or taking illegal drugs can create a dangerous situation for everyone sharing the roadway.
- Drowsy Driving - The demands of truck driving often requires the truck or to operate their vehicle for many hours without taking a break, which can lead to drowsy driving.
Often, commercial truck drivers involved in accidents are cited for their erratic movements, failure to ensure the adequate distance between vehicles, or driving distracted while talking on the phone. In these cases, lawyers can obtain financial compensation for their clients because they proved the trucker, and the trucking company failed to maintain a safe environment for those sharing the roadway, which led to an accident.
