New York Truck Accident Lawyers
If You Were Involved in an Accident with a Truck or Semi, You Need a Lawyer!
Most of the time, cars and trucks co-exist on the roads just fine, but accidents do happen.
Although many think of cars and trucks in the same vein, accidents involving tractor-trailers, semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, construction trucks, and other large commercial vehicles are very different from a legal perspective. There are different laws and regulations to consider, and unlike with cars, instead of dealing with another driver and his or her insurance company, when a truck accident occurs, there are many more parties at the table: the commercial trucking company, the professional truck driver, the trucking company’s insurance company, and the truck driver’s insurance company. Furthermore, injuries sustained from an accident involving a large truck tend to be more severe, damage more serious, and usually involve more than one other vehicle.
There are other potential issues in these cases as well, such as whether the truck driver was in violation of any regulations involving cargo or the length of time spent behind the wheel prior to the accident. The company that hired the driver may bear some responsibility if it failed to properly screen the truck driver and his/her driving records or failed to provide proper training. Proper maintenance is also a concern.
