Getting involved in a crash with a large tractor-trailer tends to cause catastrophic damage to smaller vehicles involved. Typically, someone is ultimately responsible for causing a crash. It's even possible for a truck manufacturer, loading company or company responsible for hiring to be liable, if their negligence caused the crash.
If someone else's carelessness caused the truck crash that injured you or a loved one, you may be owed compensation. For a free case evaluation with our experienced truck accident attorneys in New Jersey, please call Eisbrouch Marsh, LLC, at 201-342-5545.
Elements of a Truck Claim
Because circumstances vary widely, we encourage you to call our law firm in Hackensack or Newark if you think there is any chance you have a claim. The only way for us to determine that is by hearing from you.
Speaking in broad strokes, the main elements of a truck accident case are the following:
- You suffered an injury in a truck accident
- The accident was caused by someone else's negligence
- You are experiencing financial losses, hardships, pain, anguish or other consequences as a result of the injury
Again, the only way to know for sure is to contact our attorneys. There is no obligation and no fee to find out if you have a case.
Who Caused the Truck Crash?
One of the elements of a claim is who is at fault. If someone else is at fault, you may have cause to pursue compensation for your injuries.
During our years in practice, we have seen many accident scenarios. As experienced attorneys, we put all of our skills and resources to work in determining the cause and fault in the accidents injuring our clients.
Although each case is different, some of the most common sources of truck accidents include:
- Inexperienced truck drivers
- Driver fatigue and drowsiness
- Driver intoxication
- Unrealistic schedules
- Violation of hours-of-service laws
- Improperly loaded or unbalanced cargo
- Inadequate tractor-trailer maintenance
A crash happens in the blink of an eye. If you were involved, you may not have any idea what led up to the accident. We can help you sort out the details and determine who is at fault. You should not have to suffer the consequences without the responsible party taking accountability.
Accident injuries are inconvenient at best and life-altering at worst. Some of the consequences you are dealing with may include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Inability to perform your job duties
- Physical rehabilitation bills
- Job re-training expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
While compensation for these things cannot be guaranteed, you deserve an aggressive advocate on your side who will not stop fighting until the best possible outcome has been reached. At Eisbrouch Marsh, we know that no amount of compensation can undo the harm and trauma you have suffered. But we advocate passionately for compensation on our clients' behalves, because we believe firmly that you deserve justice.
