In Cherry Hill, trucks can often be involved in hit and run accidents. Our truck accident attorneys have learned that truckers are often not properly licensed, and many were intoxicated or distracted at the time of an accident, and instead of accepting responsibility for the crash they caused, they leave the scene. A hit-and-run accident is something where somebody does not stop and take responsibility or at least make sure that everyone is okay.
Hit-and-run accidents occur frequently where the other driver just simply takes off, leaving it up to the injured victim to try to figure out who that driver was and track them down. Let one of our Cherry Hill hit and run truck accident lawyers help you build a strong claim for damages.
Hit-and-run truck accidents in Cherry Hill differ from other accidents because initially, individuals do not know who is responsible for the accident. It is going to require investigation to determine who caused the trucking collision. This can be done by speaking with witnesses and investigating whether or not there were cameras at the intersection or somewhere nearby. If a person is unable to identify who is responsible for the truck crash, they may have a difficult time being compensated for their injuries.
However, a person’s insurance usually contains provisions that provide them some benefits when they are involved in an accident with a truck driver who was unknown, whether because it was a hit-and-run accident or some other issue where a person is unable to identify the other driver. That is why it is very important to discuss a hit-and-run semi-truck accident case with a Cherry Hill attorney right away, because not only would a person be able to initiate the investigation to try to locate the driver who ran from the scene, but also analyze their insurance benefits to determine whether they can make a claim against their own insurance company for damages.
The damages available in a hit-and-run case in Cherry Hill would include medical expenses, loss of income, pain, suffering, disability, impairment, and loss of enjoyment of life. These are all the types of compensatory damages available to somebody who has been in an accident with a hit-and-run truck driver. However, when someone is injured by a particularly wanton hit-and-run big-rig operator, they might also be entitled to recover punitive damages.
A truck driver in Cherry Hill who leaves the scene of an accident, not caring whether anybody was hurt or whether they could help someone who has been hurt, may be subjected to damages and punishment for outrageous conduct, referred to as punitive damages. These damages are for reckless or intentional conduct that cause people injury and go beyond damages for just medical expenses. Punitive damages are meant not just to compensate, but to punish an at-fault trucker for doing something egregiously wrong.
If were the victim of a hit-and-run trucking collision, the first thing you need to do is to get the appropriate medical care. The next thing you need to do is to contact a Cherry Hill hit and run truck accident lawyer right away so they can start protecting and preserving the evidence and investigate to determine who is at fault. The last thing you should do is to make sure not to discuss the matter with anyone else until your attorney has an opportunity to review your insurance policy to determine the types of benefits that are available. From there, a hit and run truck accident lawyer in Cherry Hill could work with you to build your case to appropriately assess damages.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10

In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
