Dedicated New Jersey Attorneys Help Victims Recover from Truck Accidents

Big trucks are everywhere on New Jersey roads. While our state benefits from increased commerce, the resulting presence of commercial trucks means the average driver faces major dangers on the road. In a recent 2012 survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), New Jersey had 819 incidents with big rigs and 61 were fatal—a much higher fatality rate than passenger car accidents.

Surveys like these prove how devastating commercial truck accidents can be. Too often, these accidents are caused by reckless practices and negligent behavior. If you or a loved one has suffered in an accident with a commercial truck, you deserve compensation for the damage it wreaks in your life. Find an expert truck accident attorney from Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC to defend your rights.

Protect Yourself From Reckless Behavior

Truck companies and drivers often engage in risky practices to move their goods quickly, cutting down on costs and increasing profits. However, these practices lead to the circumstances that cause collisions. Our truck accident attorney can discover whether your crash was caused by one of these factors:

  • Brake or tire problems
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver’s unfamiliarity with local roads
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Unsecured cargo
  • Prescription or over-the-counter drug use
  • Pressure on driver to deliver goods quickly
  • Speeding during bad weather or unsafe conditions

These situations describe just some of the many causes of truck accidents, and they may allow you to receive compensation for your injury.
