Advocating For Victims Of Trucking Accidents
Whether you drive a large SUV or a small hatchback, your automobile is no match for a commercial truck in a motor vehicle collision. Depending on their freight load, semis may weigh 30 times more than a passenger vehicle. A semi exerts so much force during a crash that it is rare for car passengers to survive the impact without serious or life-ending injuries.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a preventable trucking accident, Law Office of Bradley A. Sacks has the skill you need to get the full compensation that you deserve. Our attorney is not afraid to challenge negligent drivers, trucking companies or their insurers in court. We have obtained large verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients in New York City.
Holding Negligent Truck Drivers And Trucking Companies Responsible
Trucking companies are required to follow federal and state regulations regarding driver safety and truck maintenance to minimize these risks. But remaining compliant can be expensive. When trucking companies ignore these regulations to cut costs, they can put your life in danger.
We are ready to pursue negligence claims against trucking companies for:
- Inadequately training their drivers
- Failing to screen drivers for alcohol or drugs
- Falsifying driving logs or truck maintenance logs
- Failing to discipline drivers who violate the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules
We also take action against negligent truck drivers for:
- Drunk, drowsy or distracted driving
- Driving recklessly, tailgating or speeding
- Exceeding weight allowances for the truck
- Failing to secure freight appropriately or inspect the vehicle before getting on the road
- Falsifying the driver’s log
When you contact us about your trucking accident, we take action right away. We know that trucking companies will take extreme measures to avoid paying large settlements. It is not uncommon for them to try to get to the accident scene as soon as possible so they can remove incriminating evidence or tamper with truck logs to dispute your claim.
As your advocates, we will hold negligent truck drivers and their employers responsible using the law. We create aggressive legal strategies that anticipate the arguments that these business owners and insurers make. We will not back down from a legal fight because you deserve maximum compensation for your injuries.
