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.

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.
