A Lawyer Who Can Get Justice For Trucking Accidents
You do not have to travel far on any street or interstate highway in New York City or in the wider region to encounter semi trucks. Many drivers are nervous around these trucks for good reason. An accident can mean severe injuries or even death.
After a truck accident, you need an experienced advocate in your corner who can take on the trucking company or their insurance company. At the law office of personal injury attorney Alan S. Friedman, we have the resources, experience and skills necessary to level the playing field and fight for the compensation you deserve.
We Can Determine Who Is At Fault
There is often more to a trucking accident than just a driver behaving poorly behind the wheel. Additionally, trucking companies work quickly after accidents to make repairs, which means evidence can disappear.
We work quickly with investigators to figure out who is at fault. Some of the most common causes of trucking accidents include:
- Driver fatigue: Federal laws and regulations only allow drivers to spend a certain amount of hours each day behind the wheel, and they must log those hours. Many times, drivers or their employers will forge log entries.
- Poor maintenance: Because of the heavy mileage they log, trucks are prone to mechanical issues that can lead to deadly wrecks. These include brake failures, worn-out brake pads and tire blowouts.
- Lack of driver training: Trucking companies must train their drivers to respect the rules of the road and avoid driving drunk. Tailgating, improper lane changes and speeding can all cause serious accidents.
- Improper loading: Trucking and loading companies need to properly secure a truck’s trailer and cargo.
We pride ourselves on treating every client like family, which means we guide them through the entire process and look for every possible source of compensation for your injuries or the loss of a loved one. In these complex cases, that could mean taking action against multiple parties for contributing to your injuries.
