Obviously, then, when a truck and an automobile collide, it is likely that the car and its passengers will not fare well. Quite often, the passengers of the car will suffer catastrophic injuries.

Having the right personal injury attorney by your side when attempting to recover damages from injuries you suffered due to a truck accident can make the difference between getting minimally compensated versus getting the full value of compensation for your case.

If you have suffered injuries due to a truck accident, call the personal injury attorneys at Riviere Cresci & Singer LLC. (732)-646-5529
Along with our legal knowledge, we use a series of trucking industry experts, including accident reconstructionists, to help prove your case. If you hire us in a timely fashion, we can often find the cause of your collision by performing a forensic investigation, which may include:

  • Reviewing the truck driving company’s records
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Analyzing the truck’s black box
  • Reviewing the truck driver’s driving record
  • Reviewing the trucking companies’ drivers’ training programs
  • Gathering police reports
  • Consulting trucking accident experts

The trucking industry is governed by numerous federal and state regulations. The federal regulations can be found in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (49 C.F.R. §§ 350-399). These regulations govern all vehicles engaged in interstate traffic. These regulations are also very extensive and can be confusing. Our central New Jersey truck accident lawyers are knowledgeable about these regulations and can analyze how they may apply to your truck accident case.

Trucking accidents happen for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, driver exhaustion, aggressive driving, DWI/DUI, dangerous roadways, overweight trucks, negligently maintained trucks and/or negligent hiring decisions made by the trucking companies. Under the previously mentioned federal motor carrier laws, a trucking company can be held responsible for its driver’s negligence.

When you are involved in a car accident in New Jersey, if your automobile insurance coverage is limited by the verbal threshold, you cannot recover non-economic damages in a lawsuit, unless you suffer from extremely serious, permanent and/or fatal injuries. When an accident involves a truck, there is no verbal threshold limitation about which you need to be concerned. As such, you will be able to collect for non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, with having to be injured to extent required in an automobile accident.

Also, quite often, there will be a difference in the “value” in commercial truck cases as compared to auto-to-auto cases Commercial truck cases are potentially much larger with recoveries that are much greater. Generally speaking, this is due to the larger policy limits and coverage which commercial trucks carry. Where your personal auto policy may be as low as the mandatory minimum limits requiring $15,000, a commercial vehicle, such as a flat bed, company van, pick-up, tow truck, etc., usually carries much higher limits. This provides for a greater “pool” of insurance funds from which to recover.

By selecting an experienced personal injury firm, like Riviere Cresci & Singer LLC, as your truck accident lawyers, you can rest assured that we will protect your legal rights.

The insurance companies will have their lawyers looking out for the insurance companies’ best interests; as such, you too should have an attorney looking out and advocating for you!

Paul worked on a tax assessment case for my husband and I. Our town assessed our house and as a result our taxes were due to increase. Paul was excellent and time efficient. He fought our town to have the house re-assessed and as a result our taxes did not increase and we got are due for a refund from the township. Thanks so much for a job well done!

I've been extremely taken aback by the acrimonious demeanor I've read, in the reviews, regarding The law firm of Riviere Cresci & Singer but specifically Mr, Paul Riviere. Esq. I first became acquainted with Mr. Riviere after I suffered an automobile accident. I had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Riveire, along with other perspective attorney's, while looking for representation. After meeting with Mr. Reviere I knew instantly that he was the man I was going to hire. Mr. Riviere proved to be the right choice not only from his business acumen but his personal interest as well in my health and welfare. I would highly recommend this firm and Mr. Reviere if you are looking for an established firm with a history of excellent client-attorney interaction.
