New York City Truck Accident Lawyer

Make no mistake that trucks, 18-wheelers, big rigs, and other similarly
sized commercial vehicles are massive. Colliding with one can cause very
serious and destructive accidents. Those driving a regular-sized, passenger
vehicle can make one all the more vulnerable in an accident. Overall,
we hold truck drivers to a higher degree of responsibility—they
take extensive driving classes and should be trained to handle any scenario
on the road, especially to avoid an accident.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents in New York
Often times, the cause of a truck accident can be attributed to either
truck driver negligence or negligence on the part of the company who employs
the truck driver. For example, a driver who falls asleep behind the wheel
or consumes alcohol before driving may be considered liable, as he or
she did not exercise due care and caution to prevent the accident.
These are some of the common causes of truck accidents:
- Speeding, reckless driving, or dangerous maneuvers
- Truck exceeds weight limits due to excess cargo
- Cargo becomes loose and scatters on the road
- Manufacturing defects or equipment failure
- Driver falls asleep behind the wheel
- Driver violates service hours or mileage restrictions
- Driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Even when liability is clear, know that insurance companies and truck companies
will do everything they can to shift blame and reduce the payout they
may owe. That is why you need aggressive New York truck accident attorneys
behind you to make sure that your voice is heard, your interests are properly
represented, and that you obtain what you deserve.
