According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, the New York – New Jersey metropolitan trucking division employs more than 40,000 truck drivers and truck drivers in this area are among the highest earners in the industry. This explains why we see so many trucks in Cherry Hill and throughout New Jersey. With all of these trucks operating on our highways, we are bound to see a number of truck accidents. Because truck accidents are much more likely to cause incapacitating injuries than regular passenger vehicle accidents, truck accident victims need to secure truck accident expert attorneys who will help to see that they are fully and fairly compensated for their injuries.
Why it is important to hire a truck accident expert
Our Cherry Hill truck accident attorneys understand that truck accidents are different from regular passenger vehicle accidents, not only due to the greater risk of incapacitating injuries, but also in the legal investigation, applicable rules and regulations, and liable parties.
- Truckers have powerful resources – When transportation is your business, you are going to have the best accident insurance and other resources you can find related to accidents. An innocent truck accident victim needs an attorney who can stand up for them against these powerhouse trucking insurance companies and attorneys.
- Do you know the real value of your injuries? Probably not. We know how injuries and damages are valued and we have resources including medical experts to help us value your claim. Truck accidents are not just about getting reimbursed for your medical bills and getting the rehabilitative services that you need. In order to be fully compensated for your accident, other damages need to be included such as pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement, lost wages, lost future earnings, and property damage.
- Truck industry knowledge – Truck accidents are not like regular motor vehicle accidents. Important knowledge about trucks is necessary to ensure that liable parties are held accountable. Accident causes may be due to improper loading or unsecured freight, violations of safe driving requirements, or negligent truck driver hiring. Parties who may be liable in truck accidents include the truck driver, his or her employer, and anyone responsible for maintaining the truck. If there was a truck defect, the manufacturer or seller of the truck may be liable.
- Regulations – The trucking industry is subject to federal and state rules and regulations. Truck accident attorneys know the rules and regulations and they know where to look during their accident investigation to determine whether or not the defendants were in compliance with those rules and regulations. This is very important because non-compliance and violations can be used to show bad faith and negligence.
