New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Injuries Suffered in Commercial Vehicle Accidents

In today’s economy, when billions of dollars of merchandise are transported by commercial vehicle every day, accidents involving big rigs, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers, delivery vans and other commercial vehicles are inevitable and all too common. If you are an over-the-road trucker or operate a commercial vehicle for a living and you are hurt while on the job, you have a right to pursue workers’ compensation benefits for lost wages, medical expenses and even vocational rehabilitation if your injuries prevent you from returning to the wheel of your truck. You want an experienced attorney to help you get full and fair benefits for your losses. You want Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law.

At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have fought for the rights of personal injury victims since 1975. We take a different approach than many personal injury firms, recognizing that every case is unique. We don’t take every case that comes in the door, looking to settle as quickly as possible so that we can get on to the next case. Instead, we concentrate on finding ways to win cases and to get you full and fair compensation for all your losses. We will take the time to fully investigate all aspects of your claim, questioning all witnesses and traveling to the site of the accident if necessary. We will work with expert witnesses, including accident reconstruction specialists, to put together the most compelling arguments for your full financial recovery.

Protecting the Rights of Commercial Vehicle Operators Injured on the Job

We handle all matters related to your claim, from the gathering and evaluation of evidence to the filing of your application for benefits, as well as any appeals. We will be your voice throughout the process, always working hard to make certain all your rights are protected.

We handle all types of injury claims resulting from commercial vehicle accidents, including sprains, strains and soft tissue injuries, as well as serious and catastrophic injuries, such as brain or spinal cord trauma, paralysis, broken bones, burns, and amputation or loss of limb. We also represent surviving family members in wrongful death cases involving commercial vehicle operators.

Because of our experience, we know how to exhaustively investigate a commercial vehicle accident to determine the causes of the accident, as well as the potentially responsible parties. We are familiar with state and federal trucking regulations, and we know how to review and evaluate driving and maintenance logs to determine whether violations by your employer contributed to or caused your accident.
