New York Reckless Truck Driver Attorneys
Holding Speeding, Aggressive and Tailgating Truck Drivers Accountable
Although the people who drive big commercial trucks are trained professional drivers who are expected to act professionally, the pressures of driving day-in and day-out can cause many of them to behave carelessly and recklessly, potentially causing serious accidents.

Seeking Compensation for the Victims of Reckless Behavior
Anyone who drives recklessly is putting others at serious risk, but when the driver of a semi truck is reckless, the consequences can be particularly severe. Every year, many avoidable truck accidents are caused by dangerous behavior such as the following:
- Speeding: Because trucks are so large and difficult to control, it is especially important that they be driven at the speed limit, if not slower. Trucks that are being driven over the speed limit, especially on busy city expressways, create a high risk for accidents.
- Tailgating: Trucks need much more time to stop than smaller vehicles and must therefore be kept farther behind the cars in front of them. When a truck is tailgating a car and the car needs to stop or slow down suddenly, the results can be disastrous.
- Other aggressive driving: In general, truck drivers need to constantly remain aware that they are driving much more powerful vehicles than most other drivers on the road. Any failure to keep their tempers in check can have serious consequences.
If you have been injured or have lost someone close to you in a truck accident, our attorneys will carefully investigate the facts of your case so we can identify who was responsible and pursue the compensation you deserve. Let us put our experience and passion to work for you.
