Truck Accidents in New Jersey

North Hills, NY - Cyclist Fatally Struck by Fed Ex Truck on LIE Service Road Identified as Jongwon Choi

The injuries that are caused by truck accidents are normally very serious, and can even result in death. Professional trucking accident lawyers are aware of this, along with the fact that severe truck crash injuries do not heal quickly. They often require a great deal of time, treatment, and money. 

It is not uncommon for multiple surgeries and many months of physical rehabilitation to be necessary where trucking accident injuries are concerned. If victims are lucky enough to be able to fully heal, they are still required to be in physical therapy for a long time. 

These are just some of the factors that need to be taken into consideration by your New Jersey truck accident lawyer when you pursue financial compensation through a lawsuit or other legal claim for your truck accident injuries. You could also be eligible for compensation for lost income, and many other damages that need to be accounted for before your case is brought before a court or a settlement is reached.
