There are many factors which can cause a dump truck accident, including driver error and negligence, improper materials loading, and poor vehicle maintenance.

The U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates dump truck safety and conditions which could harm the public. When trucking companies or their drivers are responsible for dump truck accidents, they can be held responsible for your monetary damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
What Happens When a Dump Truck Driver or Trucking Company Doesn’t Comply with Federal Safety Regulations?
The FMCSA mandates that when a dump truck driver or company that violates or willfully and recklessly fails to comply with federal regulations which result in bodily injury or death, they can be held monetarily responsible. The FMCSA takes public safety very seriously, which works to your advantage when you’ve been injured because of a dump truck accident in New Jersey.
Why You Should Speak with CourtLaw’s NJ Dump Truck Driver Injury Attorneys Immediately
The FMCSA laws and regulations are designed to ensure that dump truck drivers and their companies follow public safety mandates. But when there has been a dump truck accident, the process of determining fault and collecting damages is complex. So, it’s important to hire attorneys who know how to conduct investigations and hold the dump truck driver or company or other responsible parties civilly responsible for your suffering.
In New Jersey, most personal injury actions have a two-year statute of limitations. However, keep in mind that the time limits for filing a personal injury claim can vary, depending on the accident circumstances. So, it’s important to not delay when contacting an attorney.
