The importance of hiring an experienced New Jersey tractor trailer accident attorney

The state of New Jersey and the Federal Government have laws which specifically regulate commercial trucks and tractor trailers. Knowing all of these regulations, and being able to prove one or more were broken by the driver or driver’s company is critically important to your accident claim. In some cases, just proof that the tractor trailer was in violation is enough to satisfy the cause element of a case. Our New Jersey tractor trailer accident attorneys have decades of experience holding negligent truck drivers accountable for the injuries they cause. Some of the specific breaches of regulations which may help you prove fault in your tractor trailer accident lawsuit include:

  • Unlawfully driving on certain types of roads
  • Not providing specific warnings
  • Missing signs or decals on the vehicle
  • Failure to maintain log books
  • Lack of training
  • Missing safety inspections
