Causes of NJ Truck Accidents

Some of the most dangerous motor vehicle accidents to be a victim of in New Jersey are those that involve a large truck. These vehicles are so massive that the chances of serious injury or death can increase tremendously. The job of a truck driver is very difficult, risky, and are heavily monitored by state and federal regulations. When drivers break these laws, other drivers on the road are put at risk.
When an individual has been injured in an accident with a truck, they may want to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party. There are a number of different factors that may be taken into consideration when looking for the cause of a truck accident. Some of these factors include the following:

  • The weight of the truck is so heavy that a driver must meticulously calculate how long it will take them to come to a complete stop. If the driver is distracted, they may not hit the brakes in time and cause an accident.
  • Truck drivers often have very long workdays and are under serious pressure of meeting delivery deadlines. When a driver fails to abide by federal driving regulations, they may be drowsy, which is very dangerous.
