Experienced Newark & Livingston Truck Accident Lawyer

Unlike in most car crashes, there are numerous parties who could have contributed to your truck accident and can further complicate a truck accident claim. It is important that your lawyer ensures that all responsible parties are part of any lawsuit. Failure to include all the parties can result in your not receiving full and fair compensation for your injuries or loss.

Some of the potential parties to a truck accident include:

  • Truck driver — a driver may suffer from truck driver fatigue, alcohol or drug consumption, or negligent driving
  • Truck cab owner — the owner of the truck cab may or not be the truck driver, but is responsible for the safety and maintenance of the truck cab, including its brakes, lights, turn signals, tires, etc.
  • Truck trailer owner — the owner of the truck trailer often is someone different from the truck cab owner or the driver, and is under the same duty to safely maintain the truck trailer
  • Truck loaders — in some cases, a truck driver can lose control of a truck because of improper loading, including an improper load balance that causes a truck to roll over or prevents a truck driver from maintaining control of the truck
  • Trucking companies — trucking companies should perform background checks on the truck drivers they provide; failure to conduct a proper background check could contribute to a trucking accident

These are some examples of the complexities faced when bringing a claim involving a truck accident. We have extensive experience handling trucking accident claims, and can provide you with the information, advice and guidance you seek.
