As a corridor state, New Jersey has more trucks on its highways per square mile than virtually any other state in the country.
Because of their size and weight, these trucks present the potential for serious injury or death, should an accident occur. In 2002, nearly five thousand deaths occurring on U.S. highways involved large trucks.
The truck accident lawyers at Wilentz, Goldman and Spitzer will work to provide victims with the financial compensation they need.
Not surprisingly, 85 percent of those deaths involved occupants of cars or pedestrians struck by trucks. The victims who survive truck accidents frequently face serious injuries, costly medical bills and the loss of significant income.
Because special rules apply to large trucks using our highways, it is important that victims of truck accidents consult with an attorney who has the experience and resources necessary to effectively handle such claims. The Personal Injury Team at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer can provide truck accident victims with the experience and resources necessary to insure a favorable recovery.
Numerous elements must be considered to fully evaluate an accident involving a truck and the appropriate recovery for the victims. The condition and design of roadways, the actions of the drivers involved, the condition of their vehicles, weather conditions, actions of other vehicles, and a host of other factors may all play a part in the ultimate decision.
If you are involved in such an accident, you will want to have all of these circumstances put in their proper perspective by attorneys who have a wealth of experience in dealing with them. Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer is just such a firm.
