Cape May County Truck Accidents
As a Cape County Truck Accident Lawyer, it is very troubling to see the needless catastrophic harm that is caused by truck accidents including severe bodily injury or wrongful death. The highways and roads of Cape May County are crowded with commercial vehicles including buses, big rigs, construction vehicles, box trucks and tractor trailers. This is a recipe for fatal accidents. Call me, Joseph Monaco, and I will help your family with answers to the many questions that arise including complex questions about insurance coverage. Obtaining legal representation is crucial. The big truck companies and insurance companies hire the best lawyers so why shouldn’t you do the same. Trucking companies actually hire lawyers and accident reconstruction experts to appear at the scene of fatal crashes day and night to scan the scene and vehicles before they are even moved. That’s why it is important to get legal representation as quickly as possible.
There were over 400,000 truck accidents in 2014 in the United States leading to 3,744 deaths. Truck accidents can be caused many ways:
- Poor truck maintenance
- Driving too many hours without proper rest
- Improper loading and cargo shifting leading to loss of control
- Untrained or poorly trained operators
- Reckless and careless driving
- Distracted driving
- DUI from alcohol or drugs
Cape May County New Jersey Motorcycle Crashes
Being an injury victim from a Cape May County, New Jersey Motorcycle Accident is potentially more dangerous than being involved in other types of motor vehicle accidents. Riders or passengers involved in motorcycle crashes often suffer more severe injuries or even death. Call me, Joseph Monaco, 2nd Generation Trial Lawyer, if you require legal advise and need to have your questions answered. Questions arise from the fact that insurance coverage issues in motorcycle accidents are somewhat different than auto accident claims. Insurance policies for motorcycles do not provide PIP (medical benefits coverage) because of the higher risk of injury.
In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to die in an accident than an occupant of an auto. Also, most motorcycle accidents (74%) are frontal collisions. The NHTSA estimates that helmets do save lives. The laws of New Jersey require the use of a helmet but many State’s laws do not. If you wear an helmet, you have 37% less of a chance to be killed.
