Tractor-trailer Crashes in New Jersey

Driving is already dangerous enough. When a big commercial truck is on the road, it is even more perilous. In the case of an accident, these enormous vehicles can be destructive, and passengers in smaller cars are far more likely to sustain injuries that could change their lives. Every year, over 500,000 major truck crashes occur in the United States, leaving thousands of people dead and numerous others injured. When completely loaded, these vehicles can weigh over 70,000 pounds, which is more than enough to cause a catastrophic accident when driving at highway speeds. You must work with an experienced attorney who is prepared to fight for the full value of your case if you or a loved one is injured in a trucking accident.
