Brick, New Jersey Truck Accident Attorneys
Trucking companies are under ever-increasing pressure to deliver freight cheaper and faster, especially with increasing fuel costs. As a result, it’s no surprise that, according to statistics gathered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the most common causes of truck accidents are speeding and driver fatigue. At LePore & Luizzi , our lawyers work with accident investigators in exposing the causes of truck accidents including driver error and violations of safety policies. We compare a driver’s log book with fuel receipts, weigh-in check points, and speedometer readings in order to create a timeline and determine if there is evidence of a driver having driven more consecutive hours than allowed under federal law. We also measure skid marks and analyze the placement of debris to determine if a truck driver was speeding.
Our attorneys understand how to investigate collisions and crashes involving 18 wheeler wrecks. To schedule a free consultation and discuss your case, contact truck accident attorneys at LePore & Luizzi today.

Holding Trucking Companies and Their Drivers Accountable
Trucking companies train drivers in methods for avoiding liability and blame in truck accidents. Additionally, their insurers often try and shift all, or a portion of the blame onto you in order to reduce the amount of a claim. At LePore & Luizzi, our attorneys are familiar with the tactics used by truck drivers – and their insurers – to reduce their liability in truck accident cases. Using our own investigators, we expose driver negligence by interviewing witnesses, analyzing data from the on-board black box recorder, reviewing a driver’s log, and reviewing other factors as well.
We can help you recover the cost of your medical expenses, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering. To schedule a free consultation, contact truck accident lawyers at LePore & Luizzi today.
