New Jersey Truck Accident Lawyers
Protecting Victims of Trucking Company Negligence
Truck accidents may be caused by the negligence of trucking companies. They may make unrealistic demands with respect to delivery times or even ask drivers to drive in outright violation of state or federal trucking regulations. They may fail to take proper precautions when hiring new drivers, or may not have proper monitoring or supervisory practices in place. If a trucking company has engaged in negligence and you have suffered injury as a result, the office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we bring more than 40 years of experience to people who have been injured in a truck accident. We carefully select the cases we handle so we can dedicate ourselves to finding ways to either win a verdict or negotiate a settlement that meets your needs. We value our relationship with our clients and are committed to keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case so you can make educated decisions about how you want to proceed. We will strive to return all your calls and e-mails in a timely manner.
As a testament to our longstanding reputation for hard work and thorough preparation, many of our new clients come to us as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.
Experienced Truck Accident Lawyers | Trucking Company Negligence
In all matters, the owners of a trucking company are required under law to exercise reasonable care. When hiring new drivers, the owners of a trucking company must take reasonable measures to ensure that those new employees either have the necessary skill set or get the training they need to be competent behind the wheel. With respect to existing employees, owners must take reasonable measures to ensure that safety precautions or requirements are followed. The government also has rules and regulations for trucking companies and truck drivers.
We handle cases involving all types of carelessness or negligence on the part of trucking companies or executives, including:
- Failure to monitor drivers so as to prevent driver fatigue, overloaded trucks, unsecured loads or other dangerous conditions
- Failure to ensure that all trucks have required maintenance performed
- Failure to properly determine qualifications or to take remedial measures against employees who violate laws, regulations or company policies
