Why Truck Drivers Have A Higher Level Of Duty While On The Road
At Rutberg Breslow Personal Injury Law in Poughkeepsie, we are dedicated New York personal injury lawyers. This means we know car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents. We understand what needs to be done and how to handle trucking company owners and their insurers. We also understand the special rules that trucking companies and drivers must follow and what can be done when they do not do this. We offer a free case analysis with our team after any truck, semi or delivery vehicle crash. Call us at 845-846-8120.
We Pursue The Maximum For Damages
Trucking company owners, managers and drivers all have a responsibility to ensure that the truck is in good working order and meets all scheduled maintenance. Managers must not pressure drivers to break rules or skip sleep in order to make quicker delivery times. Drivers must be well rested, attentive and not under the influence of any type of drug or alcohol. Manufacturers of parts must issue recalls when things like tires or brakes are found to be defective.
After a crash that causes suffering and injuries, turn to our team for skilled legal representation. While every case is different, we will seek compensation to cover all of your:
- Current and future medical bills related to the crash
- Therapies: physical, mental health, occupational
- Medical equipment related to your accident including accommodations made to your home or car
- Lost or damaged property including your vehicle and items in the vehicle
- Mental anguish, pain and suffering
- Lost wages including the money you would have earned if you’d been able to advance in your career had you not been injured
Any time you or a loved one is involved in a truck crash, it is advisable to speak with an attorney who handles personal injury cases, especially motor vehicle accidents. Not all attorneys take personal injury and of those who do, not all have experience with New York truck accident cases. We do.
