February 12, 2024

By van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim

The team at van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim is at the forefront of advocating for workplace safety, particularly in the transportation sector. Our latest legal pursuit underscores this commitment, as we represent a truck driver in a significant lawsuit against the Port Authority of New Jersey, Maher Terminals LLC, and Jersey Trucking.

Background of the Case

Michael T. van der Veen and Peter P. Adubato have taken up the mantle to seek justice for a truck driver employed to collect a container at Maher Terminal. Unfortunately, this routine task turned perilous due to overlooked safety protocols.

The Core Issue: Negligence in Safety Inspections

The crux of our lawsuit lies in the failure of Maher Terminal and the Port Authority to conduct essential inspections of the equipment provided by Jersey Trucking. This oversight led to a catastrophic malfunction of a trailer's locking pin.

Impact on the Plaintiff

The consequences of this negligence were dire for our client. The malfunction resulted in severe, life-altering injuries, underscoring the gravity of adhering to safety regulations in the transportation industry.

Our legal strategy is twofold: to seek rightful compensation for the profound impact on our client's life and to highlight the imperative of stringent safety measures in the logistics sector. This case is not just about one individual; it's a clarion call for industry-wide vigilance.

The Broader Implications

This lawsuit transcends the individual case, serving as a wake-up call to all stakeholders in the transportation and logistics industry. It's a reminder of the human cost of negligence and the non-negotiable necessity of safety protocols.
