Protecting Injured People After A Truck Accident

Drivers and owners of large trucks have a unique responsibility to those with whom they share the road. When accidents occur between a large truck and a car, motorcycle, or light truck, truckers have a significant safety advantage. Large trucks' size often means the other driver suffers a disproportionate level of injury.

Legal complications can also be disproportionate when large trucks are involved. Questions of liability can quickly become complex: Who is liable: the driver, the owner of the truck, the manufacturer, a third vehicle or a third-party truck maintenance firm? Jurisdiction issues also often apply.

For help in handling a complex truck accident injury case, turn to our legal team at Robert A. Solomon, P.C. We offer a free consultation at our office in Newark, New Jersey, or our other two offices in New York.

30 Years Of Winning Verdicts And Settlements For Truck Accident Victims

Have you have been injured in a truck collision involving an 18-wheeler, semi, tractor-trailer or "straight job"? The law firm of Robert A. Solomon, P.C., can help. We have experience sorting out the complexities of intra- and interstate trucking law, and work with physicians and other medical professionals to assess the full extent of your injuries.

We have achieved financial compensation for numerous trucking accident victims. Two sample cases include:

  • Our client was thrown from his vehicle in a truck crash, suffering permanent leg injuries. We negotiated settlements with the manufacturer of the truck, the maker of the latch on the truck door and the owner and operator of the other vehicle. The total settlement amount exceeded $1 million.
  • Our client was struck by a 40-foot tractor-trailer while in his Jeep. He developed posttraumatic stress disorder as a result, hampering all facets of his life. Though posttraumatic stress disorder is difficult to prove, we won a $724,000 jury verdict in court for our client.

Each case is unique and results will vary depending on the facts of each case.
