Gary and Cinda, Truck Accident Clients

“November of 2015 I was sitting at a red light in my Dually Pickup Truck. A loaded tractor trailer rear ended me, he was traveling in excess of 50 MPH. Resulting in me being airlifted to the trama facility nearby. I suffered a broken neck plus spinal cord damage and internal injuries. The day after the accident, Munley Law was contacted. The wheels went in motion immediately. They knew exactly what had to be done, and they did it with aggression and professionalism. They always kept my wife and I abreast of the progress. This law firm has been in business for over 60 years, and predicated on my results with them, they are sure to see at least another 60. I can tell you, My wife and I are grateful for our positive experience with Marion Munley and Munley Law.”

Trucking Accident Client

I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him.”

Truck Accident Questions and Answers

What can I do to protect my rights after a truck accident?

As the victim of a truck wreck, you have legal rights to compensation for your injuries. However, because trucking accidents often involve multiple responsible parties and insurance companies, obtaining that compensation can be a nightmare. Without legal representation, you’re likely to be bullied out of a fair settlement. Trucking companies will typically have unlimited resources, including teams of lawyers to fight against any lawsuit you may file as a result of an accident—regardless of how injured you are. If you have been hit by a tractor trailer or large commercial vehicle, the best way to protect yourself is to contact an experienced truck crash attorney who will defend your rights and ensure that you are fairly compensated.

What should I do in the days following a truck accident?

In the days after a truck accident:

  • Contact an experienced truck accident lawyer to protect your rights and advise you during this time. At Munley Law, there is no charge for a truck accident consultation.
  • Get a copy of the police report for your crash
  • Get a valuation of the property damage from your insurance company
  • Keep track of all doctor’s visits and treatment you receive,  and keep a journal of any symptoms or pain you experience. Get copies of all test results, medication prescriptions, treatments, and any other relevant medical information
  • Keep a detailed list of any out-of-pocket expenses you incur
  • Record days of missed work or other activities/events
  • Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance carrier unless you have consulted with a truck collision lawyer

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a truck wreck?

In most cases in New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. But, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible following an accident. Important pieces of evidence regarding vehicle safety standards and driver logs can quickly be lost or destroyed. It is best if we can get to work as soon as possible.

What should I do at the scene of a truck accident?

While you are at the scene of the wreck, be sure to:

  • Remain calm and remain in your vehicle, if it is safe to do so
  • Turn on your hazard lights
  • Call 911, even if your injuries seem minor
  • Seek medical attention for yourself and your passengers
  • Never leave the scene of the accident
  • Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of all parties involved, and any witnesses
  • Write down the names and badge numbers of any police officers at the scene
  • Take photographs of your vehicle, the truck, and any injuries
  • Do not admit fault
  • Do not discuss the wreck with anyone except the police or your own insurance agent; you are not required to give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company.

Who can be sued in a truck accident case?

In a truck accident case, the truck driver, transportation company, or owner of the truck may be liable. In other cases, the facility responsible for loading the truck, or even the entity responsible for the contents of the trailer can be held responsible as well. Each case is unique, so the best way to determine who is at fault is by speaking with a lawyer. That is why we offer free consultations to our potential clients.

How much will it cost to hire a truck crash lawyer?

At Munley Law, we do not collect a fee (a portion of the settlement or verdict) unless we win your case. You pay nothing up-front or out of your own pocket.
