Trucking Accidents in New Jersey
TRUCKING ACCIDENT Attorneys
Although truck drivers are responsible for an accident in the same manner as a driver of any other vehicle, it is important to note that the circumstances surrounding truck accidents are somewhat different than those of personal vehicle accidents. Accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, dump trucks, box trucks, delivery vans and other types of commercial vehicles often are more serious due to the weight and size of the truck, especially when compared to smaller, lighter cars. Not only are these accidents more serious, there are also additional regulations on trucks that aren’t present in car accident cases.
Due to the heightened responsibility of driving a large truck, there are many New Jersey and Federal laws in place which regulate:
- Hours of Operation and Rest
- Mobile Phone Use
- Driving Under the Influence
Commercial truck accident claims are NOT subject to the “Lawsuit Threshold,” therefore an injured person and their attorney may bring a claim regardless of the type or severity of injury.
If you were injured while driving a commercial truck, you may also be entitled to benefits through the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation system. Our attorneys have the experience necessary to evaluate your claim and seek every avenue of benefits allowable under the law.
