Many persons who have been hurt in an accident with a large truck are unsure of what to do next. Make an appointment with one of our truck accident lawyers to ensure that you have the best opportunity of collecting compensation for any injuries or property damage that may have occurred.
All truck accidents that result in personal injuries entail some element of fault. In a truck collision, the same type of behavior that would be considered negligence in other types of traffic accidents is also considered negligence. Truck drivers, on the other hand, are held to stricter standards than other drivers, as they must undergo extensive training and hold a special commercial driver's license (CDL).
Truckers must also adhere to tight requirements for cargo loading and securing, vehicle maintenance, safety inspections, and rest stops. They realize that failing to do so could result in terrible accidents, as well as significant property damage and injuries. Furthermore, despite the driver's best efforts, many truck accidents are caused by equipment failure or other circumstances.
Take a look at the following typical driver-related causes of trucking accidents, as well as examples of third-party negligence:
Driving while fatigued, especially while not taking regular breaks (and occasionally owing to duress from a trucker's company)
Driving while distracted
Driving recklessly or aggressively
Violations of other traffic regulations, such as speeding
DWI (driving while inebriated) or DUI (driving under the influence) of alcohol or other drugs
A trucking company's vehicle fleet is not properly maintained.
Cargo that has been improperly loaded or secured
Vehicle parts that are defective or incorrectly placed
Hazards on the road
Our law firm is committed to providing Yonkers, NY, with the comprehensive legal services required to hold those responsible accountable.

Accidents involving large trucks, such as tractor-trailers, semis, and 18-wheelers, result in more serious and common injuries than any other type of vehicle accident. Because of the size of the vehicles involved and the weight of their load, it should come as no surprise that truck accidents result in more substantial property damage, multi-vehicle crashes, and fatalities.
The number of variables that can play a role in a trucking accident should prompt you to evaluate your legal alternatives if you are involved in a collision with a semi or other truck. Enlisting the help of a knowledgeable attorney who has expertise defending truck accident victims
