Truck Accidents ● Tractor Trailer Accidents ● Semi Truck Accidents ● Big Rig Accidents

With the high level of trucking traffic on New Jersey Interstate Highways 78, 287, and Routes 1, 9, 22, 202, and 206, in addition to the many other local roadways, truck accidents are an all-too-frequent occurrence. These types of motor vehicle accidents can be especially damaging due to the size of the tractor trailers and the types of cargo they may be carrying.

At the Murgatroyd Law Group, our Hunterdon County truck accident lawyer and staff have provided injured clients and their families with vigorous and thorough personal injury representation for more than two decades. We take truck accidents very seriously. We are thoroughly familiar with the many state and federal regulations that truck drivers must follow. We can determine the best way in which to pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered, including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Holding Truck Drivers Accountable for Serious Injuries

Truck accidents, including those involving tractor-trailers, semi trucks and freight trucks, usually cause serious or catastrophic injuries. Head injury (including brain injury), spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, and organ damage are frequent results of semi truck crashes.

New Jersey truck accident lawyer Anthony Murgatroyd has helped many people who were seriously injured in truck and tractor trailer accidents caused by truck driver negligence, such as:

  • Failure to signal
  • Brake failure
  • Failure to stop
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Improper loading
  • Unbalanced cargo
  • Careless driving
  • Improper truck maintenance

Federal Trucking Regulations

Personal injury cases involving trucks, tractor-trailers, semi-trucks and freight are complicated. Motor carriers must follow very specific federal regulations in areas such as:

  • Background checks and initial testing of new truck drivers
  • The number of hours that truck drivers are allowed to drive without rest
  • The frequency that a motor carrier must inspect its trucks
  • Load, weight, and equipment restrictions

Our Hunterdon County truck accident lawyer and legal team have experience dealing with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. We also have past experience defending truck and tractor-trailer drivers and their insurance companies, which gives us insight into how to prepare your truck accident case for success.
