New Jersey’s roads and highways are used not only by commuters and tourists, but by many trucks and industrial vehicles as well. These trucks transport goods and products across the state, but the danger that these trucks pose to other motorists and pedestrians alike is very real.
For this reason, truck drivers, trucking companies, and delivery companies all have the responsibility of ensuring safe usage of their trucks and commercial vehicles, proper maintenance, thorough hiring standards and review, and following state and federal safety and operation regulations. When any one or more of these parties fail to do so, and a truck accident injury is caused as a result, the victims of these truck accidents may be able to recover financial compensation for their injuries and damages through a truck accident personal injury claim against the responsible party(s).
At The Law Office of Fredson & Statmore, our personal injury attorneys have over 50 years of experience helping the victims of truck accident injuries and their families to recover full and fair financial compensation in towns across Passaic County and Essex County, including Clifton, Wayne, Bloomfield, Paterson, West Milford, Little Falls, Woodland Park, and the surrounding communities.

Most truck accident injuries tend to have one or more of the following factors as its cause:
If you and your Passaic County truck accident injury attorney are able to prove that any of these negligent actions took place, and were what directly lead to your truck accident injuries, you will have a strong personal injury case against the responsible parties and may be able to recover financial compensation for you and your family’s injuries and damages through their own insurance providers.
Unlike most car accident injury cases, truck accidents often have more than one potentially liable party. These can include the driver of the truck, the company that employed the driver, and any entities which employed the trucking company. New Jersey’s joint and several liability laws state that any party which is at least 60% responsible for the plaintiff’s injuries may be held liable for all of plaintiff’s injuries.
It is critical that you and your Bloomfield truck accident attorney correctly identify each potentially liable party as well as the full extent of their responsibility when filing a truck accident injury claim. This is both to ensure you receive full compensation, and to prevent at-fault parties from delaying your case by claiming other parties are responsible, and that more investigation needs to be done before your claim can be resolved (a common stall tactic used in many different types of personal injury matters by insurance companies).
