Leading Truck Accident Attorneys in Newark, New Jersey

Were You Injured in a Newark Truck Accident?

At Omni Injury and Accident Law, P.C., our experienced Newark truck accident and injury attorneys know that getting hit by a commercial vehicle is a terrifying prospect. Whether it is a semi-truck, delivery truck, or another large vehicle, it outweighs your passenger vehicle, and the result is often catastrophic.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 72% of people killed in large-truck traffic crashes last year were occupants of other vehicles.

What’s more unsettling is that drivers of large trucks involved in fatal traffic crashes last year had a higher percentage (20.8%) of previously recorded crashes compared to drivers of other vehicle types. This means large truck crashes occur more often than other New Jersey motorists can imagine—until it happens to you. According to the NHTSA, last year, there were 88 fatal crashes involving large trucks in New Jersey, accounting for 9.0% of all fatal crashes in the state.

This is why we are here. Our skilled Essex County truck accident attorneys can navigate the complexities of these crashes and identify all potentially liable parties to pursue the best outcome for your claim. Contact us today to learn more.

How Do I Know Who Is Liable for My New Jersey Truck Accidents and Injuries?

Determining liability in a New Jersey truck accident can be complex, but our skilled injury attorneys do it with precision. Our experience, knowledge, and resources allow us to investigate each aspect of a truck accident to ensure each potential factor is explored and each potentially liable party is pursued to maximize our client’s financial recovery.

Several factors can help establish who may be responsible for your truck accident and injuries, and include, but are not limited to:

  • Negligence

If the truck driver, trucking company, or another party acted negligently and their actions caused the accident, they may be held liable. Examples of negligence could include speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence, failure to obey traffic laws, or improper truck maintenance.

  • Employer Liability

In many cases, the trucking company that employs the driver can also be held liable for the actions of their employees. This is often the case if the driver operated the truck within the scope of their employment at the time of the accident.

  • Vehicle Maintenance

If the accident was caused by a mechanical failure or defect in the truck, such as faulty brakes or a tire blowout, the manufacturer or maintenance provider responsible for servicing the truck may be liable.

  • Loading and Cargo

Improperly loaded or secured cargo can cause accidents, especially in the case of semi-trucks. If the accident was caused by shifting cargo or overloaded trailers, the party responsible for loading and securing the cargo may be liable.

  • Third-Party Liability

In some cases, liability may extend beyond the truck driver and trucking company to other parties involved in the truck’s operation, such as leasing companies, contractors, or entities responsible for road maintenance.

To determine liability in your specific case, our experienced Newark truck accident and injury attorneys in Newark will investigate the accident, identify potentially liable parties, and advocate for your rights to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries and damages. Contact us today to learn more about your legal rights and options.

New Jersey Truck Accidents Often Lead to Catastrophic Injuries

Our truck accident lawyers in Newark know from experience that those who have been injured in collisions with commercial vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries. The most obvious reason for this is semi-trucks are significantly larger and heavier than most other vehicles on the road. When they collide with smaller vehicles, the force of impact is much greater, leading to more severe damage and injuries.

In addition, semi-truck crashes often occur on interstates, which means they are traveling at higher speeds. When accidents occur at high speeds, the force of impact is magnified, increasing the likelihood of catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic injuries, such as severe spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, or multiple fractures, typically require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. This may involve surgeries, medications, specialized therapies, and other interventions to stabilize the individual and promote recovery.

This can lead to significant financial burdens from medical expenses, lost wages, and ongoing care needs. We can help.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a New Jersey truck accident, we want to help you realize what your claim is worth so you can reach maximum physical, emotional, and financial recovery and move forward with confidence.
