Union New Jersey Trailer Accidents
Truck Collisions Are Very Common Requiring a Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer
Big rigs, 18-wheelers, and semi tractor trailer trucks are an essential and vital part of the American infrastructure. Tractor trailer trucks transport clothing, supplies, materials, packages, and machinery to their final destination. All of these trucks additionally have a timeframe in which they are required to make the delivery, before picking up their next shipment for transport. However, when these drivers cause accidents, our New Jersey Tractor Trailer accident lawyers at Mark Law Firm are ready to fight for you. Commercial trucking companies impose difficult delivery dates on all of their truck drivers because the quicker the truck's cargo is delivered the more money the commercial truck companies can make. Unfortunately, this time pressure creates a lot of stress for the truck drivers, which causes the truck drivers to drive for long-hours in all types of weather and road-conditions. These dangerous conditions may result in a truck rollover accident. When a truck loses control and causes an accident, all vehicles and passengers involved are generally seriously injured and require the assistance of a truck collision attorney.
Some tractor trailer truck drivers attempt to drive for extended periods of time by taking drugs or other supplements to remain awake and therefore drive for longer hours. This enables the truck drivers to make their deliveries on time or early. Additionally, the present commercial truck compensation packages generally provide the truck driver with a bonus if the shipment of cargo is delivered before the scheduled delivery date. Therefore, the present system encourages truck drivers to break the law by driving as many hours as possible. Therefore, most New Jersey truck accidents are covered under strict liability as the "verbal threshold" clause of your insurance policy is not applicable. In New Jersey, both the truck driver and the trucking company will be held liable for any and all injuries resulting from the accident.
Truck Drivers Are Regulated By New Jersey Law and Federal Statutes
All aspects of a commercial truck driver's drive across the country are regulated by the Federal government as well as New Jersey laws which put maximum limits on the length of a tractor trailer, speed restrictions, and even how many hours a driver may continuously remain behind the wheel for one day, and during a week. Failure of the 18-wheeler truck driver to follow these rules can result in hefty fines and penalties. These truck regulations are further in place to minimize the danger to occupants of passenger cars and other drivers on the road. When truck drivers fail to follow these rules, they may cause car accidents, pedestrian injuries, motorcycle crashes and bicycle collisions. Either the injured party or a family member should speak with a truck accident lawyer to discuss the events surrounding their injuries to be able to better understand their legal options.
