Truck Accident Lawyers
Experienced Attorneys Representing the Injured From Serious Trucking Accidents Throughout NJ
Truck drivers work hard, sometimes driving while fatigued. Some drivers are not familiar with the local roadways. Others are simply inexperienced. Every year, thousands of people die or sustain serious injuries in accidents involving commercial trucks. Tragically, many of these accidents are the result of negligent truck drivers and their employers. These accidents result from poor driving that includes the failure to yield the right of way and other violations of vehicle and traffic laws. Some accidents also involve the failure to correctly maintain or equip the truck, and failure to train or hire drivers properly.
