Truck Accident Injury Lawyers Serving Clinton County, St. Lawrence County And Franklin County

Holding Truckers And Their Companies Responsible For Serious Accidents

There are many ways that truck driver negligence causes serious personal injury. Accidents can result from truckers driving for extended periods of time between rests, driving under the influence of stimulants or driving above the speed limit. Often, accidents occur because truckers are paid according to the time it takes them to deliver their loads. They face pressure from trucking companies to work as quickly as possible, without regard to the safety of others on the road.

If a truck driver's negligent or reckless actions cause an accident, the driver and his or her company should be held accountable. This is especially true because being hit by a truck frequently causes severe, if not catastrophic, injuries to those in smaller vehicles. Injured drivers must pursue entitled compensation in order to make ends meet and move forward with their lives.
