Truck Accident Attorneys New Jersey

Serving Clients throughout New Jersey

Distracted Driving is defined as any time a driver is doing something that will take their attention away from the road. This can include things like talking or texting on a cell phone, eating and drinking, socializing with passengers, playing with the radio, using a navigation system or other heads up display, or any other activities that would take a driver’s full focus from safely operating the vehicle.

Distracted driving accidents in New Jersey, and indeed across the nation present an extremely serious and real danger, in fact in 2015, 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in the US alone as a result of distracted driving accidents.

However, the good news is that if you or a loved one has been injured as the result of another driver’s distracted driving, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and damages through a personal injury claim.

At The Law Office of Fredson Statmore Bitterman, our personal injury attorneys have decades of experience helping clients to recover full and fair financial compensation for the victims of accidents caused by distracted drivers in towns throughout New Jersey.

Call our office today to discuss your unique needs and concerns when it comes to any kind of distracted driving accident in a free and confidential consultation.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in New Jersey

Most truck accident injuries tend to have one or more of the following factors as its cause:

  • Driver fatigue due to being overworked
  • Reckless driving like speeding or disobeying traffic laws
  • Distracted driving
  • Inadequate or poor maintenance
  • Driver intoxication
  • Negligent hiring of drivers who have a recorded history of some of the offenses already mentioned (drunk driving, reckless driving, etc)
  • Failure to comply with safety regulations as set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (for example lack of rear guard protection)

If you and your New Jersey truck accident injury attorney are able to prove that any of these negligent actions took place, and were what directly lead to your truck accident injuries, you will have a strong personal injury case against the responsible parties and may be able to recover financial compensation for you and your family’s injuries and damages through their own insurance providers.

New Jersey Truck Accident Injury Attorney Holds Responsible Parties Liable

Unlike most car accident injury cases, truck accidents often have more than one potentially liable party. These can include the driver of the truck, the company that employed the driver, and any entities which employed the trucking company. New Jersey’s joint and several liability laws state that any party which is at least 60% responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries may be held liable for all of plaintiff’s injuries.

It is critical that you and your New Jersey truck accident attorney correctly identify each potentially liable party as well as the full extent of their responsibility when filing a truck accident injury claim. This is both to ensure you receive full compensation, and to prevent at-fault parties from delaying your case by claiming other parties are responsible, and that more investigation needs to be done before your claim can be resolved (a common stall tactic used in many different types of personal injury matters by insurance companies).
