Truck Accident Lawyer Trenton
Some of the worst injuries that can result from a car accident occur when a person in a passenger car is struck by a Commercial Truck. By commercial truck, we are referring to 18 wheelers and box trucks that are commercial grade. These trucks sit high on the road, and sometimes do not see the smaller vehicles in front or to the side. In addition, these trucks are usually out of state, and the drivers are usually on the road for hours at a time. If you or a loved one were involved in an accident with a commercial truck, contact The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. Our attorneys and staff can help you work through the applicable insurance and evidence that you may need to help you be successful with your claim.
In New Jersey, motor vehicle law prescribes what most of the citizens do not know about an accident. Did you know that the majority of drivers with insurance policies have an injury threshold called the Verbal Threshold? This means that for a cheaper premium, the insured agrees not to bring a claim for bodily injuries unless they meet certain criteria of Personal Injury. There are exceptions under which this law may not apply to you. One rule is that if you are injured by a Commercial Vehicle such as a truck, and that vehicle does not carry medical coverage, then you are deemed to have no injury threshold. This means that you do not have to prove a specific injury in order to recover. Another exception to an injury threshold is when the vehicle that struck you is from out of state, and the insurance company that insures that commercial vehicle does not or have the ability to write insurance policies in New Jersey. Typically, only New Jersey residents qualify for these exceptions.
The question of whether you can recover from a Commercial Vehicle accident is determined by the law that prescribes No Fault in New Jersey. In order to make sure that you have a claim, call The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. Our attorneys will evaluate whether you have a claim, and let you know on your first call.
