However, the experience of New Jersey U.S. Route 1 accident attorneys at The Grossman Law Firm has proved that most accidents on US 1 are of the catastrophic variety.

About US Route 1 in New Jersey
U.S. Route 1 or US 1 is a highway in the United States that parallels the U.S. east coast and runs from Key West, Florida to Fort Kent, Maine at the border of Canada. Of the highway’s entire length, 66.06 miles runs through the state of New Jersey. The route enters NJ from the state of Pennsylvania via the Trenton-Morrisville Toll Bridge, across the Delaware River in Trenton, and through the city via the Trenton Freeway. The route continues northeast through suburban areas, Middlesex County, New Brunswick, and Edison. It merges with U.S. Route 9 in Woodbridge.
New Jersey US 1 Accidents
As a state that falls between the metropolitan areas of New York City and Philadelphia, New Jersey is a very populated state. As such, there are lots of thoroughfares in the state, including U.S. Route 1, where non-commercial and commercial trucks travel together with NJ motorists. Accidents between passenger cars can cause significant injuries. When a large truck such as a tractor-trailer, semi truck, tanker truck, or 18-wheeler is involved in an accident, the damage can be devastating and even fatal.
Accidents on US 1 that involve commercial trucks are more complex to litigate compared to accidents involving passenger cars or other smaller vehicles, as these truck accidents can involve several potentially liable parties. Each party, from the driver, trucking company, the truck manufacturer, and even the mechanics involved in the truck’s maintenance may be held liable for the damage. This can cause complex legal issues that need to be addressed properly and timely.
