Help For Trucking Accident Victims
With the high number of 18-wheelers and other large trucks on the roads of New Jersey, collisions between commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles are all too common. These accidents tend to be more devastating than typical car crashes, due to the trucks’ sheer size and the difference in mass.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, you need a lawyer who understands the unique legal issues and the gravity of your situation. The law firm of Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., has the experience and resources to hold trucking companies and their insurance carriers accountable for full and fair damages. We take cases in Burlington County, Camden County and statewide New Jersey.
Experienced Representation For Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Our Burlington personal injury practice is geared for a prompt and thorough investigation of motor vehicle accidents. This is especially important in truck crashes because the trucking firms and insurers will try to “cover their tracks” to deny liability or limit their monetary exposure.
New Jersey law allows you to bring a lawsuit for any degree of injury if you are hit by a commercial vehicle, as opposed to the permanent injury threshold in a regular car accident. In many cases this is a moot point because of the catastrophic injuries or fatality in truck accidents. However, we welcome cases big and small. Even if your truck accident injuries are not severe, our firm will still take your case and ardently pursue your just compensation.
We handle accidents involving all types of trucks and commercial vehicles:
- Tractor-trailers and freight trucks
- Package delivery trucks
- Garbage trucks and utility vehicles
- Snowplows and road construction vehicles
- Buses, shuttles and taxis
- Delivery cars
Many 18-wheeler accidents occur when truck drivers are hurrying to make deliveries or fatigued from driving long shifts. Other accidents result from speeding, tailgating, lane changes or traffic violations. Improperly secured cargo, neglected truck maintenance and negligent hiring often contribute to crashes. We often work with accident reconstruction specialists and obtain driver logbooks, inspection reports, black box and GPS data and other evidence of negligence.
Our thorough approach typically results in favorable settlements, but our trial lawyers are always prepared to take truck owners and insurance companies to trial in pursuit of justice.
