New Jersey Truck Accident Lawyers
Committed to a Thorough Investigation of the Causes of Your Accident
If you have been hurt in an accident involving a commercial truck, such as an 18-wheeler, semi, tractor-trailer or big rig, chances are good that your injuries are serious. The causes of a truck accident, however, can often be difficult to determine. Was the trucker carrying an excessive load? Had routine or essential maintenance been neglected? Was the driver overly fatigued because of a failure to take required breaks? Was the truck poorly designed or constructed?
When you have been the victim of a truck accident injury stemming from someone else’s negligence, you want an attorney with a thorough knowledge of the causes of truck accidents and who knows how to identify all potentially responsible parties. You want Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law.

We understand the complexity of a truck accident claim, and will carefully and fully investigate all aspects of your case with a commitment to finding a way to get full and fair compensation for all your losses. We know the frustration you can feel when you don’t know the status of your case, so we promise to respond to all your calls and e-mails in a timely manner, and to keep you fully informed of all developments in your case. Because of our commitment to a high level of personal service and attention, many of our cases come to us as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.
The Importance of a Comprehensive Investigation of Your Truck Accident Injury Claim
The causes of a truck accident can be many:
- The owner of the truck may have failed to maintain the truck. Failure to perform routine maintenance on brakes, steering mechanisms, tires and other mechanical components is a leading cause of truck accidents.
- The operator may have violated safety regulations. Over-the-road truckers are supposed to take scheduled breaks and may not be behind the wheel more than a certain number of hours in a 24-hour period.
- The trucker may have been carrying too much cargo or cargo may not have been properly secured. These actions can cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle.
- The truck or some of its components may have been poorly designed or manufactured.
A thorough investigation and reconstruction of your accident will not only be effective in establishing the cause of the crash, but can also help identify other potentially responsible parties, such as manufacturers or distributors of dangerous or defective parts. We work with leading experts on truck accidents.
