Injured in a Truck Accident in NJ? Who Was at Fault?
Imagine you’re driving on the New Jersey Turnpike, in the center lane, at a comfortable speed. Suddenly, there’s a giant tractor-trailer in front of you – and you’ve got nowhere to go.
Since New Jersey is a major thoroughfare between major cities like Philadelphia and New York City, our roadways are constantly full of trucks. If you’ve been involved in a trucking accident, determining the party responsible for your injuries can be a complicated matter. In this type of accident, there are a number of parties that could be potentially liable, and determining who they are is not always simple.The Parties Who Could Be at Fault for Your Trucking Accident Are
- The truck driver
- The individual or company who owns the truck or trailer
- The individual or company who is leasing the truck
- The company that manufactured the truck, its tires, parts or equipment
- The shipping company or freight loader
One, some, or most of these parties could be at fault for your accident. To complicate matters further, these companies and individuals will often argue among themselves about whose insurance will compensate you for your injuries.
