New Jersey Truck Accident Injury Lawyers
Injuries Caused by Overloaded Trucks or Unsecured Loads
Truck drivers will often take shortcuts to maximize profits. This may involve violation of federal regulations governing hours spent on the road. It can also cause commercial vehicle operators to carry loads that are unsafe, either because they are too large or because they are not or cannot be safely secured. If you or a loved one has been hurt because of load violations or because a vehicle operator was negligent in securing a load, the office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Office of Harold J. Gerr, we have more than 40 years of experience fighting for the rights of injured people throughout central New Jersey. We are highly selective about the clients we represent, always focusing our energy and effort on finding ways to either win a verdict or secure a settlement that meets their needs. We know the frustrations that clients can feel when they can’t get a timely response from their attorney, so we are committed to returning all your calls and e-mails as quickly as possible.
Because of our reputation for dedication and extensive preparation, we often receive referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.
Truck Accident Injury Claims | Overloaded Trucks | Unsecured Loads
Federal trucking regulations are in place for very specific reasons. It has been proven time and time again that overloading a truck will make it unstable or unwieldy, and dramatically increase the risk of accident and injury.
We handle all types of claims involving accidents caused by overweight trucks, including:
- Crashes caused by an inability to slow down or stop due to excessive weight
- Jackknifed Trailers
- Sudden lane changes or loss of control due to weight shift or loss of traction
We also take truck accident claims resulting from a failure to properly secure cargo, whether inside a container or on the back of a flatbed.
