Truck Accident Lawyers Who Fight For Justice On Behalf Of Victims And Their Loved Ones
Semi-trucks (or 18-wheelers) have to share the road with numerous other vehicles, most of which are much smaller and much less capable of withstanding the impact of a collision. When crashes happen, victims often end up with catastrophic or fatal injuries.
Pursuing compensation for these injuries and losses from the trucking corporations can be intimidating. Semi-truck crashes or tractor-trailer accidents are often complex, and multiple parties may be involved – not just the semi-truck driver but also potentially their employer, the dispatcher, the mechanic or maintenance company, and even the manufacturer.

Where And How Semi-Truck Crashes Happen
Semi-truck accidents happen across New Jersey, but they’re especially prevalent on major thoroughfares such as the New Jersey Turnpike, I-295, Route 73, or Route 70.
It often takes a detailed investigation to uncover what factors contributed to the accident. Common factors include:
- Distracted driving;
- Drunk or intoxicated driving;
- Driver fatigue;
- Improper truck maintenance;
- Unbalanced or unsecured loads; or
- Violations of trucking safety regulations.
Identifying these factors – and gathering the evidence to support them – is critical for holding the at-fault parties accountable.
