Truck Accidents In New Jersey

Truck accidents are very dangerous because of the size of the trucks involved. A truck driver who is distracted by anything could cause an accident. There are many ways that a truck driver can become distracted. For example, if a truck driver is talking on a cell phone while driving, he or she may miss something important and cause an accident.

Truck accidents happen when trucks collide with other vehicles, pedestrians, or objects. These collisions can cause serious injuries to the people involved. A truck accident lawyer can help you understand what happened and how to file a claim for compensation.

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck drivers must be careful when driving because of the truck size. Trucks should be driven carefully because of the weight of the truck and should be checked for safety before being operated. 

  • Drivers should be taking breaks during long shifts because fatigued drivers may fall asleep while driving. Commercial vehicle drivers should not be allowed to drive longer than 12 hours per day and 16 hours per week.
  • Speeding and other violations - Maneuvering a truck takes skill and concentration in good conditions. Driving too fast or violating a traffic law could make it impossible to avoid an accident.
  • Cell phone use - Distracted driving is a big problem when operating a car, motorcycle, truck, or another automobile.
  • Drunk Driving - A trucker who drives drunk could lose his or her CDL.
