Our Attorneys Represent the Injured in Litigation After Truck Accidents
Semi trucks, also referred to as 18-wheelers or tractor-trailers, are the most imposing vehicles on the road. A fully loaded truck can weigh up to 40 tons. Passenger vehicles typically weigh between 1 and 2 tons. This contrast in weight means that when a truck traveling at highway speed collides with a car, the driver and passengers in the car are at extreme risk for catastrophic injuries and death.
If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck accident, a personal injury attorney can help you recover damages for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs. For many years, people across New Jersey have looked to Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, for effective legal representation in the aftermath of a severe injury. We help automobile accident victims recover the compensation they need and hold corporate interests responsible for their actions. In this way, we help to make our community and our state a safer place to live.
Equipped to Handle the Complex Nature of Truck Accident Claims
Truck accidents involve many unique aspects. For example, there can be numerous liable parties in any truck accident case. Your lawyer must be able to sort through the evidence to locate every potentially liable party. Further, federal law requires trucking companies that do business across state lines to carry a minimum of $750,000 in liability insurance. With this much at stake, insurance companies will take every step within the law to limit their exposure. It is vital that your law firm is able to adequately address these issues.
At Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, we will closely review all of the evidence, including the truck’s event data recorder, or “black box.” The black box captures substantial information about the truck’s speed and other important factors. We will work with investigators, medical experts and other professionals as necessary to build the strongest possible claim on your behalf.
