Many riders get a thrill operating a motorcycle but it comes with added risk. The added risk of an accident and of more severe injuries or even wrongful death. If you or a loved one have been injured or wrongfully killed in a motorcycle crash, call me, Joseph Monaco, Burlington County truck & motorcycle accident lawyer, and I will answer your questions about monetary compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.

Burlington County Truck Accidents

The trucking industry provides a valuable service. Who doesn’t like receiving that package from Amazon or Ebay on their doorstep. Who doesn’t like buying that brand new car that arrived at the Burlington County dealership on the back of a tractor trailer. But there is always risk involved in every segment of life. Plus, an increase in demand puts more semi-trucks and tractor trailers on the road, which only adds to the risk. According to statistics compiled by Ryder Trucking, more than 500,000 big rig accidents occur every year in the United States. There are many factors contributing to these truck accidents:

  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Driving too many hours without proper rest
  • Improper loading and cargo shifting leading to loss of control
  • Untrained or poorly trained operators
  • Reckless and careless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • DUI from alcohol or drugs
