New York Reckless Truck Driver Attorneys
Truck Accidents Caused by Speeding or Reckless Driving
A collision with a commercial vehicle, whether it is a semi or a delivery truck, usually causes serious injuries to the passengers in the other vehicle. For this reason, commercial vehicles are covered by large commercial insurance policies, and the drivers are held to a higher standard. Accidents still happen, however, and the injured parties must fight the trucking company’s insurance carrier for the compensation they deserve. It is better to let an experienced attorney handle your injury claim.

We Investigate the Driver and Trucking Company
All commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders must report moving violation convictions to their employers within 30 days of being ticketed. Any traffic violation conviction affects a driver’s CDL, whether or not it happened on the job.
We will investigate the cause of your accident. This investigation will often include looking into the truck driver’s commercial and personal driving records, reviewing driver logs for mile and hour violations, and looking at other speeding or reckless driving convictions.
Serious Injuries Require Serious Compensation
No matter the cause of a trucking accident, the injuries are usually serious. We seek compensation for brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, back injuries, fractures, amputations and burn injuries. We also represent families that have lost someone to a wrongful death.
Our attorneys will pursue your claim for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and additional related expenses. We will work with medical experts and economists to demonstrate the extent of the injuries and their effect on the family.
