Common Causes of Truck Accidents in New York

Often, 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.
