Proven New Jersey Commercial Truck Accident Lawyer
Accidents Involving Big Rigs, Tractor-Trailers, 18-Wheelers and Semis | Driver Fatigue | Violation of Trucking Regulations | Serious and Catastrophic Losses
An empty semi can weigh as much as 22,500 pounds—that’s more than 10 tons. When carrying freight, those big rigs can have a gross weight of up to 80,000 pounds. If your private vehicle, weighing about 1/20th of that, collides with an 18-wheeler, the consequences are almost always catastrophic. Unfortunately, determining the specific cause of a commercial truck accident is often a complex endeavor. So, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights and understand the unique factors involved in large truck accidents.

We’ll move quickly to gather and preserve all evidence to support your claim. We’ll take the time to learn the details of your accident so that we can effectively advocate to get full and fair compensation for your losses.

Aggressive Advocacy for Truck Accident Injury Victims
We understand the many factors that can contribute to a commercial truck accident and will conduct a thorough investigation of the scene of the accident. We’ll review all driver and maintenance logs to determine whether driver fatigue or improper vehicle maintenance played a part in the crash. We’ll obtain information from the truck’s onboard “black box,” helping us determine whether things like speed, braking and other factors played a role in the crash. We’ll also investigate whether the truck had any manufacturing or design defects.
Attorney Lee will help you pursue compensation for all your losses, from wages and income to physical pain and suffering, and from unreimbursed medical expenses to loss of consortium, companionship or enjoyment of life. We represent people who have suffered any type of injury, including broken bones, burns, paralysis, traumatic brain or spinal cord trauma, amputations or loss of limbs, and permanent scarring and disfigurement.
