Hurt in a Large Truck Accident? Call (609) 240-0040
Large trucks are intimidating to many drivers on the road and for good reason. In an accident, a sedan, station wagon or SUV is no match against the sheer size and weight of a tractor-trailer, box truck or cement mixer. If a large truck collides with a passenger car, or topples over onto one, the damage is bound to be extensive, and the chance of serious injuries or fatalities is very high. Combined with the dangerous driving habits to which many commercial drivers are prone and trucking companies' poor maintenance practices, drivers are right to be fearful of these behemoths on the road.
New Jersey Truck Driver Negligence
When large trucks do get into accidents, whether it is rear-ending a car, a jackknife accident, an underride collision, tire blowout or rollover, many other vehicles may become involved. The roadway may be littered with cargo, sometimes extremely hazardous, and the results can be disastrous. Unfortunately, inattentive, or sometimes blatantly impaired, truck drivers are out there on the road with us, and they can cause these types of accidents. Even more unfortunately, otherwise good drivers are sometimes involved in dangerous accidents because trucking companies pressure them into making the fastest delivery possible, which leads to drivers taking shortcuts. Trucking companies pressure drivers to ignore maintenance issues that they should log before a trip or falsify sleep logs to meet their demands.
Regardless of whether the driver or the trucking company caused it, if you were injured or lost a loved one in a large truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation. The physical, financial and emotional costs can really add up quickly, and you do not have to face bullying insurance companies alone. Your focus needs to be on recovery from your truck accident injuries. In the case of a fatal accident involving a loved one, it's important to care for your family and try to get your life back as close to normal as possible.
