Providing Answers and Representation Following Truck Accidents in New York
The laws in place to ensure the safe operation of cars and light trucks are often expanded and amplified when they address the operation of heavy trucks and commercial vehicles. An example of this are laws governing the prevention of truck driver fatigue.
Semi trucks and their cargoes can weigh many tons. The laws recognize the importance of ensuring that the drivers who operate these trucks are alert, awake and responsive. Truck drivers, therefore, are required to take breaks, avoid driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol and medications, which can contribute to fatigue, and follow numerous other regulations meant to prevent truck driver fatigue.
If you have been injured in a truck accident in New York State, it’s important to work with an experienced truck accident attorney to determine whether truck driver fatigue contributed to your accident. Establishing negligence can affect the success of your case, as well as the level of compensation you receive.
