What can the right truck accident personal injury lawyer do for you? When a truck gets into an accident with an automobile, there is only one sure result: the people in the car lose. If you do not select Gordon, Elias & Seely as your truck accident lawyers, you could lose twice. Have the right truck accident lawyer on your side can make the difference between settling for the insurance company's low-ball offer or getting millions of dollars for your settlement or jury award. All personal injury lawyers are not the same. If you hire a lawyer who doesn't focus on truck accident cases, you may be leaving a lot of money on the table.

We Make Sure the Truck Company Pays for Your Injuries

There are strict laws and federal regulations that govern truck drivers and trucking companies. Drivers are often forced to work long hours to stay on schedule. Managers pressure them to complete their tasks by any means necessary. When shortcuts are taken, other drivers on the road lose. Under federal motor carrier laws, a trucking company can be held responsible for their driver's negligence.

Northern New Jersey Trucking Accident Attorneys

At Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we represent Northern New Jersey residents on a contingency basis. There are no initial, out-of-pocket expenses to you. We manage your case while you focus on recovering from serious trucking accident injuries caused by:

We use experience and thorough legal knowledge, coupled with vast resources, to build your tractor-trailer crash injury claim based on the facts. Expertise comes from our network of trucking industry experts and accident reconstructionists. From there, we seek the best resolution, through negotiation, mediation or litigation.

Though there are many streets, roads, and state highways where truck accidents occur, often times they occur on Interstates such as I 78, I 80, I 287, I 87, I 495, Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike and other major truck routes like US Highway US 206, US 1, US 9, US 202, US 46 and US 206. They also occur on State roads such as 23, 284, 519, 94, 515, 511, 17, 208, 4, 67, 440, 35, 34, 18, 27, 514, 513, 12, 31, 57, 24 and 10.

According to one report, New Jersey truck volume is on a path to increase by 80% in the next 20 years.

Catastrophic Injuries When Safety Was Not a Priority

It does not matter what kind of truck is involved in your accident. They can include:

  • Tanker Trucks - Oilfield Trucks- Pipe Haulers- Chemical Trucks and other trucks with trailers carrying hazardous materials
  • Slow Moving - Log Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Dump Trucks, Cement Trucks, Gravel Trucks and Construction Zone Trucks entering and exiting a highway construction zone, Wide-Load Convoys, Bulldozers, Farm Equipment and slow moving Paving Equipment
  • Freight Liners, UPS, DHL, Fed-Ex, U-Haul, Mayflower and other van lines
  • Shuttle Bus, Casino Buses to and from Harrah's, Caesar's, Trump Taj Mahal, Tropicana, Bally's and Atlantic City Hilton, Vacation Bus, Tour Bus, Greyhound Buses
  • Most all other 18-wheeler, Big-Rig, Flatbeds, Tractor/Trailer combinations or any type truck that involves a pre-trip inspection.

Commercial Trucks Not Large In Size But With A Large Insurance Policy

By using independent professionals and extensive knowledge of national and state trucking laws, we are able to prepare the strongest case possible to help you get the full amount of money damages for your injuries or wrongful death claim. Filing a claim against a truck company insurance policy isn't like filing against car insurance.

The difference in size of cash settlements in commercial truck cases are potentially much larger than auto to auto accidents generally for one reason: the size of the policy of insurance. Your personal auto policy is sometimes as low as the Northern New Jersey state mandatory minimum limits require of $15,000, however, a commercial vehicle, such as a company van, pick-up, tow truck, etc., usually carries policies of insurance coverage with much higher limits and you can be fairly and fully compensated when the driver is negligent.

You do not have to retain a firm in Northern New Jersey if the accident occurs in Northern New Jersey. You need to retain a firm that specializes in truck accidents. Often times, firms from other states, such as ours, are retained because of their experience and knowledge
