Personal Injury

Truck Accident

Since 1929, Pellettieri, Rabstein & Altman injury lawyers have specialized in representing clients who have been seriously injured in truck accidents in New Jersey. Personal injury matters require no fee upfront. Our fee is a set percentage of any settlement or judgment we may obtain on your behalf. 

It is estimated that over 10% of all fatalities in motor vehicle accidents involve a truck and every year thousands of motorists and truck drivers are killed or injured in truck accidents resulting from driver's mistakes and negligence on the part of trucking companies, including mechanical failures, reckless driving, inadequate driver training, and the most common --driver fatigue. 

Determining the cause of a truck accident may be daunting. Our injury lawyers will gather evidence, and determine, for example, whether the trucking regulations or other state laws apply to your truck accident and whether there have been any violations. Our attorney will also work with experts to gather information and determine the cause of your truck accident.

Trucking companies and their truck drivers legally have accountability in New Jersey to operate their trucks in a safe and responsible manner. Truck companies in New Jersey are required to have extensive insurance. However, navigating the insurance company’s policies and procedures can be very complex. Our injury attorneys thoroughly understand New Jersey's complex legal and insurance issues and will vigorously support your rights to medical and other benefits with exceptional client service.

Our experienced injury lawyers will be able to ascertain who the responsible parties are and file claims against such parties. Not only may the commercial truck driver be liable, but also the truck owner, the trucking company, and the trucking contractor. If the accident was caused by a mechanical failure, or a defective part, component or system, the possible parties may also include the manufacturer, the seller, the installer or a mechanic who made repairs.
