Eligibility for Workers’ Compensation for Home-Based Employees

How Auto Accident Settlements Are Calculated

Auto accident settlements go far beyond the cost of the car (in terms of replacing it), and medical expenses. In fact, there can be plenty of other expenses that people can win over in court, simply from getting in a bad auto wreck. Normally, with a smaller accident, there is not much else to be… […]

Truck Driver Error Causes Accident in Monmouth County New Jersey

Personal Injury Lawyers helping people who have been in accidents With trucks

Truck drivers have a duty to maintain a commercial driver’s license, adhere to strict federal trucking laws and obey all traffic laws. Truckers are held to exacting standards for good reason. Semi trucks and other large tractor-trailers have the ability to cause serious and fatal injuries to other drivers.

Despite strict trucking laws and regulations designed to prevent commercial trucking accidents, such accidents are still far too common. All too frequently, truck drivers cause accidents by failing to exercise due caution. Examples of truck driver errors include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to properly secure loads
  • Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
  • Failure to maintain a safe distance
  • Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions
  • Weight violations
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, contact the experienced New Jersey truck driver error attorneys at Rudnick, Addonizio, Pappa & Casazza PC. We represent clients throughout Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties in truck accident claims. We offer a free consultation and all personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no fees to us unless we obtain compensation for you.

Experienced New Jersey Truck Accident Attorneys

It is critical that you retain an attorney who understands that truck accident claims are different from car accident claims. To properly handle a truck accident case, a personal injury attorney must have a thorough understanding of complex insurance coverage issues, trucking company policies and commercial trucking laws. Given the size and weight of large commercial trucks, tractor-trailer accidents are also more likely to involve catastrophic or fatal injuries.

Our injury attorneys have successfully obtained compensation on behalf of clients who have been injured by negligent truckers. We have the experience, knowledge and commitment to protect your rights. When necessary, we have access to accident reconstruction experts and other expert witnesses who can assist in the effective prosecution of truck accident claims.

To best serve our clients, we take time to understand the cause of their accidents and the extent of their injuries and losses. We vigorously pursue full compensation of behalf of accident victims for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other forms of available relief. You can rely on us to fight for you.
