Auto Accidents with a Fire Engine
If you have been injured in a New Jersey fire truck accident, you may be able to receive compensation. Fire truck and car accidents can be particularly dangerous because fire trucks are very large and usually moving at a high rate of speed. Because of this speed and the fact that the driver sits high above the ground in the front of the truck, a fire truck driver may not be able to see pedestrians or other vehicles such motorcycles, cars, trucks, or bicycles.
