Belford NJ Truck Accidents
Truck accidents often occur in Belford NJ because drivers make negligent errors that can seriously hurt other drivers on the road. Such negligent behavior includes distracted driving, tailgating, speeding, and otherwise reckless driving.
Certain methods made by trucking companies can also cause accidents on the road. Trucking companies can assign unreasonable hours to their drivers and train them poorly. They can also take part in negligent hiring, violating hours of service, and fail to properly maintain vehicles.
Some trucking accidents are caused by a defect or malfunction that is not the fault of any one person. However, the trucking company may still be liable and responsible for any damages caused to innocent victims. Similar to traditional automobiles, common malfunctions in large commercial trucks include faulty air horns, brake malfunctions, tire defects, gas tank explosions, and broken trailer hitches.
If you’ve been hurt by a truck and would like to take legal action against the driver or the company, our personal injury lawyers are only a phone call away. Call us today at 888-355-4752.
Belford NJ Ice and Snow Accidents
Ice and snow accidents that occur in front of or near property occur because the owner of the property was negligent in terms of cleaning up. A tiny decision to cut costs can affect thousands of lives each year. A study published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that 42,480 workplace injuries in 2014 involved sleet or snow. As with residential property, workplace supervisors are just as responsible for workplace conditions during bad weather. They need to remember to clean the snow, and pour salt on the ice.
People who injure themselves on snow and ice can get broken bones or even traumatic brain injuries, depending on the fall. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that one in five falls can result in a serious injury. Total medical costs for medical injuries also add up to $34 billion each year, with hospital costs amounting to two thirds of the total.
