What are the common causes of truck accidents in New Jersey?

There are several different ways that truck accidents can happen in the state of New Jersey. Recognize, however, that in most cases, they are because of driver negligence. Some of the most common kinds of truck driver negligence that our legal team has seen include, and are not limited to, the following:

  • Failing to brake on time
  • Taking turns too sharply, causing rollover/tip-over crashes
  • Traveling at excessive speeds
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to account for large blind spots
  • Unsafe lane changes/merges

Because of this, there are a number of other parties that can contribute to some or all blame for truck crashes, including:

  • Truck company employees

Why should you have an attorney on your side after a truck accident injury?

There are several reasons why truck collision lawsuits are often difficult. To start, there is a broad range of parties who may be liable for these accidents, which is why it is important to have a truck accident lawyer on your side to help you pinpoint the actual cause of your injuries. Additionally, truck companies often use strong legal counsel to dispute allegations of negligence made against them, and only an experienced lawyer can work with this counsel.

Furthermore, various kinds of evidence can be available when it comes to truck collisions, for instance, “black box” data, that can inform us of the speed that the truck driver was traveling at the time of the accident.

What kind of financial compensation can be obtained?

If you are able to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you will likely be able to financial compensation for the burdens you have faced as a result of your injuries. This compensation can help reduce economic and non-economic burdens sustained as a result of the injury. Especially, this can include the cost of medical bills and lost wages, in addition to the pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional anguish you have sustained, and more.
