Full Damages for Devastating Injuries

Alan Markman has handled numerous tractor trailer accidents in 14 years of practice, like the wrongful death case of a speeding trucker who plowed into a woman parked on the side of the road. We have helped clients recover damages for catastrophic injuries such as brain damage, paralysis, lost limbs or shattered bones.

Even if you escaped with lesser but serious injuries (fractures, lacerations and scars, soft tissue injury) we can take your case. There is no "limitation on lawsuit" in truck accidents, no matter what type of insurance you have.

We Know Truck Accidents

Mr. Markman personally visits the scene and considers what information a jury or insurance company would need. We use professional investigators to gather evidence or reconstruct the semi truck crash, and build on the State Police's report to prove the trucker's or trucking company's negligence:

  • Excessive speed, tailgating, lane changes
  • Driver fatigue or drug or alcohol use
  • Bad brakes, bald tires or broken lights
  • Shifting freight or overweight trucks
  • Negligent hiring and training

Markman & Cannan LLC has secured settlements and verdicts for trucking accidents on the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Route 3, Route 21, I-80 and I-280. We help clients get the right medical treatment and make sure that any settlement fully covers future care, lost earnings and the personal impact of a lasting injury.
