No Fee Unless Recovery
Call Us for a Free Consultation
When you suffer an injury in a truck accident you need to consult with an experienced lawyer. Jeff Charney and Daniel Roberts are committed to getting you the compensation you deserve. You will not be charged a thing unless your case there is recovery so you can trust your truck accident case to the expertise and experience of the lawyers at Charney & Roberts.
Memories tend to fade over time, so it is important to contact a lawyer soon after your truck accident. This applies to the injured person, the driver at fault and the witnesses. Private investigators will want to obtain witness statements immediately after the accident while the details are still fresh in their minds. Charney & Roberts investigate the accident thoroughly, hire an accident reconstructionist, if necessary, and communicate with the insurance companies and defense counsel. All of this preparation may be necessary to make sure you have the best chance at winning your case.
Accidents involving large trucks are among the most serious and most deadly in the United States. At Law Offices of Charney & Roberts, P.A., we recognize that handling these cases requires a thorough understanding of commercial vehicle regulations on both the federal and state level. Trucking companies are required to follow Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations concerning their equipment and their drivers’ hours of service. In New Jersey, the Department of Transportation is also charged with the task of adopting regulations regarding the safety of motor carriers. Driver fatigue is a common problem, as hours of service regulations are routinely violated. Careful examination of records after an accident often shows serious and even fraudulent violations of those safety regulations. However, trucking companies are only required to maintain many of those records for six months. Without obtaining those records before they are destroyed, the injured person or survivors of a person killed in a truck accident has a much more difficult time proving the trucking company’s negligence.
