Truck Accidents Alcohol Drug Use
After a trucking accident, the trucking company will work to remove evidence and deny fault for the accident. If the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the company can be held liable for the accident.

If your accident was caused by a drunk commercial driver, we will seek compensation from the trucking company.

Commercial driver’s license (CDL) holders must report DWI convictions to their employers within 30 days, even if they were arrested while driving their personal vehicles for non-work-related purposes. A DWI conviction may cause the driver to lose his or her CDL temporarily or permanently. It will also increase the trucking company’s insurance premiums.
We will investigate the cause of your accident. This will often include investigating the truck driver’s commercial and personal driving records. If DWI was the cause, we will uncover it and use it as leverage against the trucking company.
Our goal is to obtain compensation for all of your losses, including medical bills, long-term care, lost wages, pain and suffering, and funeral expenses. Because accidents with large commercial vehicles usually cause catastrophic or fatal injuries, we work hard to recover the maximum amount our clients are entitled to receive.Call a New York Impaired Truck Driver Lawyer
