Filing a New Jersey Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Truck Accident

Those injured in a New Jersey semi-truck accident may be eligible for financial compensation from an at-fault truck driver or trucking company through a personal injury lawsuit. However, the recovery process often presents accident victims with many hurdles along the way. For many, dealing with insurance companies while still recovering from accident-related injuries is an overwhelming experience. For this reason, those seriously injured in a New Jersey truck accident should consult with an experienced New Jersey Truck Accident Lawyer who can properly advise them about their rights and help them prepare and file a personal injury claim.

If successful, an accident victim may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the extent of the victim’s injuries, damages in a New Jersey truck accident may include payment for the following:

• Lost wages
• Decrease in earning capacity
• Past medical expenses
• Future medical expenses
• Physical pain
• Emotional or psychological suffering

Every truck accident case is different. An experienced truck accident attorney can ensure your rights are protected, and will fight to obtain maximum compensation from those responsible for your injuries.
