Monroe Township is the 14th safest city in New Jersey, and was named “One of the best places for empty nesters in New Jersey” by New Jersey Monthly. Because of the low taxes and proximity to New York City, the area is appealing to couples whose children have grown and moved out on their own. Once your nest is empty, you may find that you no longer need to work close to home. If you love to travel, you may choose to pursue a career in over-the-road trucking, carrying goods across the nation.
Tractor Trailer operators enjoy a lifestyle that is full of flexibility and independence, but there are major issues that can arise. Work may be delayed by mechanical issues or trouble with cargo or schedules, or more seriously, you may be involved in an accident. Tractor trailer accidents can be more complicated because there are often several more parties involved than just the individuals driving the vehicles in the crash. Many times, there are separate owners of the cargo and the truck that carries it. Because tractor trailers engage in interstate commerce, they are regulated by the Federal Government rather than individual states, and there are complicated laws involved. These trucks also carry commercial insurance. Insurance companies use third-party investigators when accidents occur. Because of these factors, you should seek the counsel of an attorney as soon as possible to protect your interests. Attorneys specializing in these types of accidents can review contracts between carrier and cargo owners to determine liability.
When selecting an attorney to handle your accident case, make sure they have an understanding of the medical system, to handle any injuries that may have been incurred. It is also important to select an attorney with experience regarding interstate commerce laws and commercial insurance. Inquire with prospective attorneys regarding their experience with cases like yours, and be sure to discuss rates of successful representation.
