In most automobile accident cases, individuals seeking compensation for pain and suffering must first prove that the injuries they sustained are permanent before being entitled to money damages. The State of New Jersey has carved out an exception to this general rule when individuals are involved in accidents in which the negligent driver is operating a “commercial vehicle.” In these instances, a personal injury Plaintiff must simply prove that they sustained any injury in order to be entitled to compensation. The attorneys at Harrell, Smith and Williams are extremely experienced in handling truck accident cases whether they involve sprain and strain injuries, traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injuries.
Unfortunately, most individuals who are involved in accidents involving trucks suffer some form of injury due to the disparity in size between their own vehicle and the vehicle that the defendant is operating. In the event that the defendant driver or defendant truck owner is employed by a governmental entity, there are specific reporting requirements. The failure to file the necessary reporting documentation within the prescribed time period will act as a complete bar to your case. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident involving a truck, it is essential that you call us today to make sure that your rights are adequately protected.
