Providing comprehensive legal guidance when you need it most

Commercial trucks are heavy-duty pieces of machinery and truck drivers must be trained and experienced to ensure the safety of other motorists and pedestrians. Accidents involving commercial trucks often cause significant injuries due to the truck’s inherent nature and size. In many cases, these types of trucks may be transporting hazardous materials that may pose additional risks when involved in an accident. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, you need an experienced accident attorney on your side to protect your rights and best interests. At Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC our dedicated New Jersey commercial truck accident attorneys have decades of experienced helping victims hold responsible parties accountable and achieve favorable results.

 

Commercial truck accidents are often caused by negligent or reckless behavior

Driving is a privilege that requires proper licensing, training and experience. Commercial truck drivers must remain vigilant at all times to prevent accidents. Unfortunately, thousands of serious accidents involving commercial trucks occur each year. Some of the most common causes of large truck accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield to other motorists and pedestrians
  • Improper lane change
  • Failure to adhere to drive time limits and regulations
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

 

Accident investigations are highly detailed and require extensive investigation and analysis. Accident reconstruction experts and witness testimony may help support your claims and obtain proper recovery. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your accident, we work diligently to explore all options and develop a solid legal strategy to help you move on with your life in the best possible position.

 

Commercial truck drivers are subject to enhanced regulations

Because commercial trucks are large vehicles that present additional challenges and require specific skills, drivers must obtain a commercial driver’s license (CDL). To obtain a CDL, applicants must adhere to state laws and demonstrate proper vision, medical and health abilities. In some cases, a medical examiner’s certificate of eligibility must be obtained from a certified Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) physician. In addition, drivers must pass a written CDL knowledge test and CDL road test. Failure to obtain a proper CDL may lead to additional liability for both the driver and trucking company.
