Pursuing damages after a New Jersey trucking accident

September 11, 2015

Compared to the average automobile in New Jersey, a semi-truck is a gigantic and lumbering monstrosity that can cause absolute destruction in a collision. Indeed, the typical car does not have a chance when it is involved in a traffic accident with a giant semi-truck. As a result, these kinds of accidents often result in catastrophic injury and death.

Because semi-trucks are usually owned by large transportation companies and/or smaller businesses, and because there are different government rules and regulations that apply to them, car accident cases that involve semi-trucks need to be handled differently from the typical personal injury claim. The government rules and regulations that apply to semi-trucks include special rules to prevent driver fatigue, rules for log books, legal weight limits and the training and licensing of semi-truck drivers.

When a truck driver breaks a semi-truck regulation and causes an accident as a result, the driver and the company that employs the driver can be held responsible in court for resulting damages. For example, let’s say a semi-truck accident victim suffers a spinal cord injury and is paralyzed for life. The driver and his or her company can be held responsible for the cost of medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, future medical treatments, rehabilitation therapies and more.
