Trucking Accident Injury Claims In NJ & PA

Trucking Accident Injury ClaimsIn this article, you will learn…

  • Some common injuries that result from trucking accidents,
  • Who may be liable for injuries resulting from trucking accidents, and
  • How much your accident personal injury case may be worth.

What Are Some Of The Severe Injuries You See Resulting In Accidents Involving Semi Trucks And Other Large Commercial Vehicles Across New Jersey And Pennsylvania?

When trucks and tractor-trailers are involved, the resulting injuries are typically more serious than those you see in auto accidents. These can include…

  • Serious fractures,
  • Multiple body fractions,
  • Concussion head injuries,
  • Spinal injuries,
  • Paralyzation, and
  • Death.

Who Is Liable For My Serious Injuries After Trucking Accidents In New Jersey Or Pennsylvania?

When you’re injured in a trucking accident in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, liability for those injuries could fall to…

  • The owner of the truck,
  • The business that operated the truck, or
  • The driver of the truck.

An attorney will help to figure out who the responsible party is in your specific case. There is a possibility that more than one person is liable for your injuries in some cases. It may be the driver’s liability, but what if the driver’s company had them overworked and driving more hours than legally permitted? These things are regulated by federal regulations and these things have to be investigated. There are going to be multiple targets in a trucking accident.

How Much Is My Trucking Accident Injury Case Worth Usually?

The worth of your trucking accident injury case depends on the policies at issue. If a driver is operating a commercial truck, by regulations, they have to have a certain amount of coverage to operate that vehicle. You have to make sure that your attorney is investigating all publicly available information on the Federal Transportation’s website. Then, you have to deal with the business. There’s a potential to go outside of insurance coverage available and look to see what kind of assets are in the business in the event that the business was operating its trucking business without sufficient coverage.

What Damages Might I Be Able To Recover From My Severe Trucking Accident Injury Case In New Jersey Or Pennsylvania?

Several factors will go into determining what damages one might recover from a severe trucking accident injury case. This can include…

  • The severity of the injuries,
  • How permanent the injuries are,
  • What the prognosis is,
  • Your age,
  • Is there sufficient coverage available,
  • What assets the business has, and
  • Many others specific to your case.

The only way to really answer the question of how much you might expect to recover in damages is to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who can review the specifics of your case.
