Causes of New Jersey Truck Accidents
There are several causes of truck accidents in New Jersey. When a truck driver or trucking company is at-fault for an accident, it is often due to driver error or negligence. These include, but are not limited to:
- Distracted driving;
- Poor or inadequate truck maintenance;
- Lack of routine truck inspections;
- Failure to provide proper driver training;
- Improper loading; and
- Drowsy driving.
Truck drivers regularly suffer fatigue at the wheel. While there are federal regulations limiting driving hours, drowsy driving still occurs and causes truck accidents in New Jersey.
Reasons for truck driver fatigue may include:
- Overnight driving shifts;
- Skipping breaks;
- Time pressure to deliver loads; and
- Unhealthy diet or exercise choices.
Ultimately, trucking companies need to ensure their drivers follow federal guidelines and receive the necessary training to operate their vehicles safely.
Liable Parties in Truck Accidents
Truck accidents are complicated. There are parties other than the driver and trucking company who may bear responsibility for an accident. These may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Cargo companies;
- Parts manufacturers;
- Truck manufacturers; and
- Maintenance facilities.
When multiple parties are at fault, they often try to shift blame to one another to avoid paying a claim. This makes it especially difficult to pursue a truck accident claim without an experienced truck accident attorney.
At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Hasson, P.C., our truck accident attorneys perform extensive research and investigation into your accident to determine if one, or multiple parties, are liable for your injuries. We strive to hold the trucking industry to the federal safety regulations that govern them. Doing so helps lend a sense of closure and justice to you and keep others safe in the future.
