Truck Accidents Attorneys in Central Jersey

Experienced Commercial Vehicle Accident Lawyers Serving Injured Victims Throughout Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Union County and Beyond

Nearly everything you buy in a store or order online is delivered by a truck. With so many trucks on the road, accidents are inevitable. Accidents do not just happen. Every truck accident can be traced to one or more causes, from weather conditions to the training of the driver.

At Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A., our attorneys work with investigators and truck accident experts to determine the cause of the accidents that injured our clients. We pursue financial compensation from the responsible parties.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

The causes of truck accidents can be grouped into several main categories:

Driver Error

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driver impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Violation of hours-of-service regulations
  • Improperly trained or licensed driver
  • Failure to respond properly to road or weather conditions

Truck Equipment and Related Issues

  • Tire blowouts or tread separation
  • Bad brakes
  • Improper maintenance
  • Defective truck parts
  • Lack of safety markings
  • Lack of or inadequate under ride protection
  • Failure to meet safety standards

Improper Loading

  • Overweight load
  • Unbalanced load
  • Load shift during transport
  • Failure to properly secure cargo

Other Factors

  • Improper care in selecting a trucking company or driver
  • Weather conditions
  • Dangerous or defective roadways
  • Trucking company policies that pressure drivers to drive too many hours

For more than 35 years, our attorneys have represented clients injured in truck accidents, including those involving 18 wheelers, commercial vehicles, and delivery trucks. Truck accidents can happen anywhere but often occur on heavily traveled roads such as Route 1, Interstate highways 287 and 78, and the New Jersey Turnpike.

If you or a member of your family was injured in a truck accident, it is important to speak to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Evidence must be gathered and preserved quickly. Driver logbooks must be examined. Data from the truck’s black box recorder must be secured.
