A Clifton Truck Accident Lawyer Can Assist You

Thousands of large trailers and commercial trucks travel on Clifton highways and interstates yearly. Most truck firms are self-insured, so they will have their private investigators on the accident scene a few moments after a truck accident involving one of their vehicles. Therefore, it helps to have a lawyer.

If you get involved in a truck accident in Clifton, it is not recommended to handle your claims independently. Besides the complex insurance negotiations that often arise in these transactions, there is a myriad of applicable state and federal motor vehicle laws—including the New Jersey Department of Transportation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations.

A personal injury lawyer can help in investigating your claim and enlightening you about all legal options. Furthermore, a lawyer will identify the right at-fault parties, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, and defend your claim if need be.

Furthermore, most cases become complicated due to multiple layers of liability, including:

  • The truck driver
  • Some government entities
  • The company or dockworkers in charge of loading the truck
  • The maintenance subcontractor
  • The maintenance firm that works on the truck
  • Manufacturer of the truck
  • The company that leased the truck
  • The owner of the truck

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in New Jersey

Before negotiating with the at-fault truck company lawyers or their insurance representative regarding your claim, consult a Clifton truck accident lawyer to establish the cause of your accident first. This way, you willl not say anything that can compromise your application.

At Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C., we will offer a candid assessment of the causes of your truck accident to ensure your claims are valid. After that, we will explain your options for you to get full and just compensation.

Truck accidents often result from a variety of different factors.

Poor Road or Weather Conditions

Poorly maintained roads produce hazardous conditions for trucks and other road users. With their speed capacity and large size, these vehicles are often unable to adjust quickly to road flaws.

On the other hand, operating a large truck in adverse weather (including rain, snow, and hail storm) can contribute to major accidents involving large commercial vehicles, pedestrians, and other road users.

Exhaustion and Distracted Driving

The trucking sector is infamous for its physical strains on drivers. Truck companies often push drivers to their physical and mental limits by making them drive for long hours and across long distances. Statistics reveal that most truck accidents happen when drivers nod off while at the wheel and unintentionally drift into another traffic lane.

According to New Jersey State, using a cellphone while driving is among the most common forms of distracted driving behavior. It can cause a truck driver to fail to spot a danger or change lanes without using turn signals.

Driving Under the Influence

All drivers are likely to be careless when driving under the influence of intoxicating substances. Using prescription drugs and energy pills to avoid sleeping can also affect the ability to drive carefully.

Many intoxicated drivers usually engage in aggressive driving, which includes tailgating and over speeding. All forms of dangerous driving can potentially cause fatal accidents on interstates and highways.

Mechanical Failure

Serious truck accidents can happen when vital truck parts fail. Broken-down steering components, brake systems, and transmissions can cause severe trucking accidents leading to distressing bodily harms and even death.

Wrongly Loaded Cargo

Commercial trailers and trucks transport goods all over the state. When truck loaders wrongly load products onto a trailer or into the vessel, mishaps may happen as cargo or other debris falls into roadways, triggering severe accidents.

Potential Damages You Can Recover

A commercial truck accident can result in severe injuries to people and damage to vehicles. A Clifton truck accident lawyer will help you obtain compensation for the various kinds of damages arising from such accidents, including:

  • Traumatic head injury
  • Neck and back injury
  • Limb loss or amputation
  • Lacerations and cuts
  • Internal organ damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractured bones
