Commercial trucks and Semi’s only account for three percent of the motor vehicles on our nation’s roads, but they are involved in approximately 25 percent of all motor vehicle accidents. Being the victim of a truck accident is overwhelming enough, but matters are further complicated when your accident involves a commercial truck, since there are federal laws specific to the trucking industry.
If you or a loved one were recently the victim of a semi truck accident in NJ, the personal injury attorneys at Team Law have more than 60 years of experience and are best equipped to navigate these laws and obtain a verdict in your favor.
Some of the most common causes of commercial truck accidents include:
- Negligent vehicle maintenance
- Driver’s negligence or impairment
- Poor weather conditions
- Trucks filled beyond capacity, causing an overturn
- Commercial truck blind spots
- Improper stopping distance
Commercial Truck Accident Lawyers Fight for Maximum Compensation for Victims in Middlesex, Essex, Hudson and Union Counties
According to the Semi Truck Accident Victims’ Center, someone is hurt or killed in an accident involving a semi-truck, tractor-trailor or other large commercial vehicle. Unfortunately, the trucking industry is poorly regulated and truckers, in an effort to get their jobs done, don’t always adhere to safety guidelines. They drive too fast, they don’t take their size into consideration when sharing the roadway with cars and drivers are often tired and forced to pull double shifts. When all of these things add up, that is when the most dangerous accidents occur.
The laws governing semi trucks are very complex because there are government regulations that control the trucking industry. These regulations include some major causes of commercial truck accidents in New Jersey, including driver fatigue and legal weight limits. Only an experienced commercial truck accident attorney will have the background to confidently handle a case involving truck-industry laws and file your truck accident lawsuit in NJ.
Regardless of the cause of your truck or car accident, the truck driver has several companies in his or her corner: the trucking company itself and all the insurance companies associated with the cargo inside the vehicle. It is difficult enough to obtain money owed by an insurance company after a car accident, but the issue is far more complex when there are two or more companies all saying another is accountable.
