We Investigate ALL Truck Accidents in NJ
Our team of attorneys do not let any stone go unturned. We will thoroughly investigate your truck accident and analyze all aspects of the accident to understand how it happened and who was at fault.
Fortunately, many institutions and companies have implemented rules and policies to help protect their truck drivers and keep other drivers on the road safe. Unfortunately, not all drivers adhere to those rules and policies and that is when mistakes happen.
Some of the most common reasons for truck accidents include:
- Lane departures
- Driving too fast for conditions or speeding
- Driver distraction or error
- Driving while intoxicated or impaired
- Driving while tired
- Using a phone or texting while driving
- Aggressive or careless driving behavior
- Wide right turns
- Maintenance issues
- Blind spots not accounted for
- Brake problems
No matter what caused the accident, we will uncover it and hold all liable parties accountable for the injuries and damage they caused.
Who is Held Responsible in a Truck Accident?
While driver negligence is often the cause of a truck accident, it is not always the cause. In some cases, the owner of the truck or the employer can be held liable.
In the event of a truck accident, a company or employer can be held responsible if the accident occurred because:
- They negligently hired someone or did not train or supervise them properly
- Failed to maintain, inspect, or repair the truck
- Did not complete a background check on the employee
- Did not replace any defective parts or perform required recalls
- Hired a driver with a history of traffic violations
- Overloaded a truck or trailer
