Fatal Truck Accidents in New Jersey
More than 30,000 people are injured in New Jersey motor vehicle accidents each year. Truck accidents are particularly devastating as they often force victims into local hospitals where they have to undergo extensive and costly medical treatment. Many victims have to spend weeks in local hospitals, followed by months going back and forth to therapy. The size and weight of semi-trucks mean that any victims involved in these crashes are at an increased risk of suffering life-threatening injuries that leave them permanently impaired.
Unfortunately, there are many instances where innocent people die as a result of the injuries they suffered. Losing a loved one due to a fatal truck accident can be incredibly devastating. Families often struggle to move forward and deal with the emotional and financial toll.
