Commercial Truck Insurance Disputes

Professional New Jersey Insurance Law Attorney

There is a common misconception that if there is a commercial trucking accident, the driver of the big rig must be at fault. Although there are obvious holes in that belief, it is still pressed by people filing personal injury claims after a collision. Truckers and their employers deserve just as much legal representation as anyone else — they should not be unfairly judged by the law due to public opinion that might not fully understand the situation.

At Reardon Anderson, LLC, our New Jersey insurance lawyers have proudly taken up the mantle of representing truck drivers and trucking companies after an accident when other law firms would shy away from the challenge. If you have found yourself or one of your employees in such a one-sided situation, you need to contact us as soon as possible for professional advocacy.

Our clients benefit from our accolades and experience, including:

  • 45+ years of combined legal practice
  • Focus on complicated insurance law
  • 10.0 “Superb” Avvo rating (Attorney Anderson)

Defenses to Truck Accident Claims

For many people – judges and juries included – they wrongly assume that a semi-truck is nearly impossible to control, and that the sheer size of it increases the chances of accidents on the highway. The truth of the matter is that a well-trained trucker may be able to control their vehicle with just as much care and precision as any other motorist. In fact, there are common dangerous practices that the average driver commits on a daily basis that could easily cause a crash.

Smaller vehicles may cause a truck accident by:

  • Tailgating
  • Cutting into lanes
  • Lingering in blind spots
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Texting and driving

Oftentimes, some of the only evidence a driver has against a truck driver is that the truck was there. By analyzing the evidence and listening to your claims, we believe we can build a case that fairly absolves you or your employee from sole responsibility of the collision. If your vehicle is equipped with an electronic onboard recorder (EOBR), we can also inspect its findings to see if there is proof of proper safety and maintenance records there.

We understand that much of your case might boil down to regulations established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). With our comprehension of these complicated laws, we may be able to prove that your truck driver was in the right and that your company has followed all regulations closely, taking some or all of the blame off your shoulders. It all comes down to your client experience and fair treatment, so we are always striving to be at the top of our game, and you will be kept in close contact for all crucial case decisions.
