Why You Need a Cherry Hill Truck Accident Attorney

Truck accidents are much different than car accidents, both in terms of the damage they cause and the laws that govern them.

For one, trucks weigh 20-30 times more than passenger vehicles, so when they’re involved in an accident, the results are often catastrophic. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,761 people were killed in large truck accidents in the U.S. in 2018 alone.

What’s more, the trucking industry is regulated by a complex web of federal and state laws designed to keep both truckers and the motoring public safe. When these regulations are violated and accidents happen, the victims often have a hard time getting the compensation they deserve because they don’t know how to navigate the system.

That’s where we come in. Our Cherry Hill truck accident lawyers are well-versed in the laws that govern the trucking industry, and we know how to build a strong case to get you the compensation you need and deserve.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Improperly secured loads
  • defective truck parts
  • Poorly maintained trucks

No matter how your accident happened, we can help. We have a long history of success holding negligent truckers and trucking companies accountable, and we’re ready to put our experience to work for you.

What to Do After a Truck Accident

If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, it’s important that you take some important steps to protect your rights and give yourself the best chance of getting full and fair compensation.

First and foremost, seek medical attention for your injuries, even if you don’t think they’re serious. Many truck accident injuries, such as whiplash and traumatic brain injuries, don’t present themselves until days or even weeks after the accident. By getting checked out by a medical professional, you’ll not only get the treatment you need, but you’ll also have documentation of your injuries if you need to file a personal injury claim.

Second, don’t give a statement to the trucking company’s insurance adjuster. The adjuster will likely try to get you to say something that can be used to reduce or deny your claim, so it’s best to just avoid them altogether.

Instead, refer them to your lawyer, and let us handle the insurance company. We know how to deal with them, and we won’t let them take advantage of you.

The sooner you call, the sooner we can get to work on your case. We’ll conduct a thorough investigation, help you with police reports, gather all the evidence we need, and build a strong case to get you the compensation you deserve.

Personal Injuries Caused by Truck Accidents

Truck accidents often cause serious injuries, sometimes even death. If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, you may be facing a long road to recovery, and you may need extensive medical treatment.

Some of the most common injuries we see in truck accident cases include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Whiplash

These injuries can have a major impact on your life, and they can be costly to treat. You may need surgery, rehabilitative care, and other expensive medical treatments. You may also be out of work for an extended period of time, which can add even more financial stress to an already difficult situation.

Our Cherry Hill personal injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you need and deserve to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. We have a long history of success in truck accident cases, and we’re ready to put our experience to work for you.

You should never give a statement to an insurance adjuster without first speaking to a lawyer. Anything you say could be used against you, and it’s important to have someone on your side that can protect your interests.

Yes. Truck drivers are subject to hours of service regulations that limit the number of hours they can drive in a day. They are also required to take breaks after driving for a certain period of time. These rules are in place to help prevent accidents caused by driver fatigue.

If a truck driver violates these rules and causes an accident, they may be held liable for any resulting injuries.

Most truck accident cases are settled out of court. However, if a settlement can’t be reached, the case will go to trial. Our experienced trial lawyers are prepared to take your case to court and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Liability for a truck accident can be complex. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, multiple parties may be held liable for your damages.

The most common source of compensation after a truck accident is the trucking company’s insurance policy. However, other sources of compensation may be available, such as the driver’s personal insurance policy or the cargo insurer.

Our experienced truck accident lawyers will investigate all potential sources of compensation to make sure you get the full amount of money you’re entitled to.
