Experienced Truck Crash Attorney in Camden County, NJ Provides a Free Initial Case Review for Clients in Voorhees as well as Burlington County, Gloucester County, and Throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania
Garber Law, P.C. has been practicing personal injury law in Camden County, New Jersey, for more than 28 years. Our experience includes trying cases and negotiating fair settlements for automobile accidents. Because of the seriousness of commercial accidents and the complexities of these accidents, you need a skilled New Jersey truck accident lawyer to handle your claim. Commercial truck accidents are often more severe than car accidents because the vehicles are larger and harder to control.
There are additional rules and regulations that control which drivers are allowed to drive commercial trucks, how they’re supposed to drive and how the truck is supposed to perform. The truck is normally owned by someone other than the driver and it becomes crucial to identify the proper owner. We help you get compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering.
Types Of Commercial Vehicles
- Tractor Trailer
- Hazardous Materials Carriers
- Moving Vans
- Delivery Trucks
Commercial Trucks And Commercial Vehicles Are Dangerous
Because of their size and weight, commercial vehicles need more room and more angles to make proper turns, the likelihood of severe injury is much greater. Additionally, commercial vehicles have to deal with difficult blind spots, loads that might spill onto other vehicles and other road conditions. At Garber Law, P.C., our New Jersey auto accident attorneys can help you if you’ve been injured in a commercial truck-related accident, including those caused by:
- Brake failure
- Driver fatigue
- Motor vehicle regulation violations – common violations are that the truck is oversized, overweight or too wide.
- Motor vehicle moving violations such as speeding, tailgating and following too closely.
- Improper driver training
- Improper truck inspections
- Using a cellphone
- Trucking companies making the truck drivers meet unreasonable performance schedules
- Improper loading and securing of freight
We File Lawsuits Against Negligent Drivers
- Individual drivers. Drivers or passengers in any other vehicle on the road and pedestrians can sue if they were hurt to recoup their medical bills, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering. The personal injury lawyers at 856-281-1292 will work to get you the results you deserve.
- Commercial vehicle drivers. In many cases, the driver of the commercial vehicle is the one who is hurt. The driver’s remedy is to bring a worker’s compensation claim against the employer or the employer’s insurance carrier. If a third party (other than the employer) can be shown to be at fault, then the driver can sue the third party.
