What to do if you’ve been injured in an accident:

  1. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Ensure Authorities are contacted and document the scene. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you can receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  2. Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information too.
  3. Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the dangerous condition.
  4. Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information you have about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, contact our experienced New Jersey Personal Injury lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.

Truck Accidents Cause More Serious Injuries

Accidents involving trucks can be more severe than car accidents due to their larger size and weight, especially enormous 18-wheeler tractor-trailer trucks. While the most common vehicles are pickup trucks and SUVs, which can do plenty of damage, the larger commercial vehicles often cause the most severe injuries. The root of many of these Tractor Trailer Accidents are:

  • Reckless Operation
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Lack of Truck Maintenance
  • Violating Truck Regulations
  • Overloading Truck

Aspects Of Truck Accident Injury We Assist You With

We have extensive experience handling Truck Accident claims. Let us help get your loved one’s life back to normal and obtain the compensation they deserve, such as:

  • Lost Income.
  • Pain and Suffering.
  • Rehabilitation Costs.
  • Short- and Long-Term Medical Expenses.
  • Wrongful Death damages.

Who Can Be Held at Fault in a Trucking Accident?

In a car accident injury case, identifying the parties responsible for the wreck is a critical step in securing fair compensation for your losses. Depending on the circumstances, any of the following parties could be at fault:

  • The Other Driver – The other driver could be liable if their actions, such as speeding, drunk driving, or distracted driving, contributed to the accident.
  • The Vehicle Owner – If the driver does not own the vehicle involved in the accident, the owner could be liable, especially if they knowingly allowed an unqualified driver to operate the vehicle.
  • An Employer – If the driver was acting within the scope of their employment at the time of the accident, the employer could be vicariously liable for the employee’s actions.
  • An Auto Manufacturer – If a vehicle defect contributed to the accident, the auto manufacturer could be liable for producing a faulty product.
  • Local Authorities – Local or state government bodies could be liable if poor road conditions, inadequate signage, or other roadway issues contributed to the accident.

If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, you may also be eligible to file a wrongful death claim against the party at fault and their insurance company.

What If I Am Partially at Fault for the Truck Accident?

New Jersey has a “modified comparative fault” system, which means you can still recover compensation from another party even if you’re partly to blame for an accident, so long as your fault is no more than 50% However, if you are partially at fault, the amount of compensation available to you will decrease based on your percentage of fault.

Components of a Commercial Vehicle Accident Case

You must prove that the other party caused your injury to have a successful personal injury claim. First, you must show that the other party owed you a duty of care and breached it. New Jersey defines duty of care as “ A person in control of a property using reasonable care to keep the premises in a reasonably safe condition for the protection of all persons whose presence is reasonably foreseeable.” This includes stopping at red lights. If a driver runs a red light, he or she has breached the duty of care. That breach put you and other motorists at risk.

Finally, you must prove that by breaching the duty of care, the other party caused your injuries. Using the previous example, you can prove causation if a driver runs a red light, hits your car, and breaks your leg. By running the red light, the driver caused an accident. The accident resulted in a broken leg. This is a straightforward example, but personal injury cases are generally much more complicated. That’s why hiring our New Jersey Vehicle Accident attorney is vital.
