Commercial Vehicle Accidents in New Jersey
More than 30,000 people are injured in New Jersey motor vehicle accidents each year. Truck accidents are particularly devastating as they often force victims into local hospitals where they have to undergo extensive and costly medical treatment. Many victims have to spend weeks in local hospitals followed by months going back and forth to therapy. The size and weight of buses, coupled with the large capacity of these vehicles, mean that many victims involved in these crashes are at an increased risk of suffering life-threatening injuries that leave them permanently impaired.
After being involved in an accident, many victims are overcome by fear, confusion, and helplessness. In order to deal with the mental, physical, and financial consequences victims face moving forward, New Jersey provides victims with the ability to file legal claims against the at-fault parties. These claims filed in civil courts enable victims to recover compensation to cover the costs of medical treatment, repairs, and lost wages. When victims sustain injuries in collisions as a result of other drivers’ actions, they should contact a New Jersey truck accident attorney as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
