New Jersey Tractor-Trailer Accident Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions About Tractor-Trailer Accidents in New Jersey

Who can be held liable for a truck accident?

Multiple companies are involved in the trucking industry and therefore may have liability for a tractor-trailer accident. In addition to the truck driver, other parties who may be held liable in a truck accident claim include: the trucking company that hired or retained the truck driver, the owner of the truck (if not the truck driver or trucking company), the freight company who loaded the trailer or truck, the truck’s mechanics, or the manufacturer of the truck or parts used on the truck (such as tires or brakes).

 Do I still have a case for a truck accident I may have been partly responsible for causing?

New Jersey law does not automatically bar you from pursuing compensation for injuries you suffered in an accident that was partially your fault. You may file a claim for financial recovery so long as your share of fault for the truck accident is less than or equal to the fault of the party or parties you are filing your claim against. Our firm will thoroughly investigate the accident you were involved in to recover evidence conclusively showing the truck driver’s and trucking company’s fault for the crash.

When do I need to file a lawsuit in my truck accident case?

The statute of limitation on truck accident lawsuits in New Jersey gives you only two years from the date of the crash to file suit against those at fault for the accident or liable for your losses. Filing suit after the statute of limitations has passed on your claim risks allowing your case to be permanently dismissed as untimely. For this reason, you should not delay contacting DiTomaso Law to ensure that your rights are timely pursued.
