Truck accidents in New Jersey can have fateful consequences. The causes of truck accidents that lead to wrongful death claims are negligence. It can be as simple as negligence on behalf of the truck driver doing something that they should not have done while on the road, or negligence of that truck driver’s employer. A lot of times, truck drivers are asked to drive shifts that are too long and against applicable regulations. This results in truck drivers either performing their duties negligently or sometimes even falling asleep at the wheel, causing a horrific truck accident that results in a wrongful death of an innocent party.
If you have a loved one who died in a truck accident due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation with the help of an experienced truck accident attorney. A New Jersey truck accident wrongful death lawyer can work hard building your case.
When conducting their initial investigation into their client’s case, New Jersey truck accident wrongful death attorneys try to make that loved one’s family’s life a little bit better going forward and into the future by getting answers, finding out why this truck accident occurred, determining if it could have been avoided, and could that deceased loved one still be alive if things were handled differently.
Ultimately, at the end of the case and at the end of the day, experienced lawyers try to get compensation for that loved one’s family from the truck driver and the truck company’s insurance to make their lives a little better moving forward.
Necessary elements to prove negligence will depend on the facts and the circumstances of the individual accident case that a truck accident wrongful death attorney in New Jersey will discover. They will use all of their experience and resources to conduct an investigation both into the happening of the accident and into what the damages are following that case. The investigation is to find out what happened, how it could have been avoided, and what could have been done differently. Then the
The investigation is to find out what happened, how it could have been avoided, and what could have been done differently. Then the damages of the case are evaluated, by looking at the medical picture, the injuries, and the effect that it had on the person’s life and on their loved ones’ lives. Lawyers do both of those things by investigating the happening of the accident and looking into the damages with experts.
A lot of times attorneys may have to utilize their resources and hire truck experts to tell them what was done wrong and what should have been done differently. When dealing with medical injuries, medical experts tell them not only what that injured party’s injuries are and what their diagnosis is, but more importantly, what their problem is, what can they expect in the future, and whether they are going to get better, worse, or stay the same. All of these factors come into play when evaluating the claims and making a determination as to what would be fair for that person and their family.

The role that a New Jersey truck accident wrongful death lawyer plays is also primarily as the one dealing with the insurance companies. It is hard enough for a family that has lost a loved one suddenly and tragically as the result of an accident. The last thing they want to be dealing with is the insurance company, the paperwork, phone calls, and approvals of damages. That is what the attorney is going to do. The attorney is going to deal with the insurance company. They are going to take that load off of the family since they are dealing with enough and do not want to be dealing with the insurance companies. Compassionate and skilled truck accident wrongful death lawyers in New Jersey will handle everything, making sure that everything is being paid properly and timely.
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

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.
