We Are Experienced with the Complex Laws Involving Truck Accidents

In 2016 (the latest year available for data), 4,440 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes. This number was up 2% from the year prior. Of the approximately 475,000 reported crashes involving large trucks, 0.8% proved fatal, while 22% resulted in injury. In 91% of fatal crashes involving large trucks, 83% of the fatalities were not the truck occupants. The complexities of these cases often calls for help from a car accident attorney.

Truck accidents occur every day in New Jersey, resulting in severe injury or death. Accidents involving dump trucks, semis, tractor-trailers, and other large commercial vehicles can cause broken bones, burns, brain damage, and more.

There are several factors that may contribute to the occurrence of a truck accident. Such factors include:

  • Driver Inexperience

After you have been injured in a truck crash it is imperative that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible before contacting a truck accident attorney.

Truck accident attorneys are experienced with these types of cases and have an understanding of how to best obtain relevant documentation such as driver records, police reports, and maintenance records.
