Recovering Compensation After a Truck Accident in New Jersey

Truck drivers are the backbone of our nation, providing our stores and factories with the materials and merchandise they need to keep their businesses running. While most truck drivers are responsible individuals, accidents do happen. If you have been involved in a truck accident, you are most likely now severely injured and seeking financial compensation to help you recover. Here are some of the questions you may regarding the legal process going forward:

How do truck accidents happen?

Truck accidents happen for several reasons, some of them having nothing to do with negligence. For example, poor weather conditions, such as snow, ice, rain, or wet leaves on the road can cause a truck driver to lose control of his or her rig. Additionally, faulty or defective truck parts contribute to some truck accidents. However, the most common cause of truck accidents is driver negligence. When truck drivers drive under the influence, text while driving, speed, and disregard other rules and regulations of the road, people are very often injured as a result.

Can I sue a truck driver for my injuries?

Fortunately, you can. However, to win any personal injury lawsuit, you must first hire an attorney who is capable of proving that you were injured due to a truck driver’s negligence. As long as your attorney can satisfy the burden of proof, you should have financial compensation coming your way.

How can an attorney help me win my claim?

An experienced attorney knows the ins and outs of the personal injury claims process and can tell you that even when a claim seems straightforward, it very is often not. Knowledgeable attorneys are trained in obtaining and presenting evidence in the most convincing way possible, which is exactly what personal injury victims need. Insurance companies are oftentimes greedy and care solely about their bottom line, which is why they may deny you the compensation you truly need to get back on your feet again. Fortunately, our firm knows what it takes to win victims the compensation they need.

What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New Jersey?

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years. If you fail to file within two years of your accident, you will most likely be barred from suing. The sooner you file, the better. Our firm is ready to get the claims process started.
