Big Rigs Cause Big Injuries
As a major population center and industrial hub, the Northern New Jersey-New York area sees a heavy volume of truck traffic on its roads every day. Most of the drivers are on deadlines or they push to get as many loads delivered as possible. Unfortunately, truck drivers sometimes push themselves and their equipment beyond the limits, leading to accidents that harm others on the road.
At Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC, in Nutley, our lawyers represent clients who were injured in accidents involving semitrucks and other large commercial vehicles. We have successfully handled truck wreck and other auto accident claims in Essex County and the surrounding areas since the firm’s founding in 1969. We understand the devastating effects of a collision between a heavy truck and another vehicle: the vehicle’s occupants are usually seriously injured. We fight on behalf of these injured people to recover the full and fair compensation they deserve.
Making Sense Of The Complexities In Trucking Accident Cases
Trucking industry deregulation has led many trucking companies to push their drivers harder than ever, which has led to more accidents. Yet, it has not become easier for injured people to hold these companies and drivers accountable. Our Northern New Jersey truck accident attorneys have the experience and knowledge needed to make sense of the highly complex state and federal laws that govern the industry. That knowledge has led to many successful results in even the most challenging situations.
Searching For The Cause Of The Crash
Our team will conduct an investigation into the events that led to the accident. While the trucking company and its insurer may try to blame you, our job is to uncover the real cause of the accident, which may be:
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- An overloaded tractor-trailer
- Failure to secure cargo
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Lack of truck maintenance
- Failure to adequately train the driver
We are adept at locating and analyzing the multiple insurance policies that are usually involved in an 18-wheeler accident case. This is crucial to maximizing recovery.
Pursuing Compensation For Serious Injury
Clients come to us with back and spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and other serious trauma resulting from truck wrecks. Some of our clients are families who lost loved ones in these accidents. We understand how difficult this time is for you, and we will do everything we can to help you recover the compensation you need, along with, perhaps, some sense that justice has been served.
