Accident Caused by an Aggressive Truck Driver?

Seek the Help of Our New York City Truck Accident Lawyers!

Although the people who drive big commercial trucks are trained 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.

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a semi-truck accident, our experienced New York City truck accident lawyers at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. can carefully investigate your case to determine whether speeding, tailgating, or other aggressive behavior was a factor. With our firm located in Manhattan, we are able to serve clients from all five boroughs and beyond. Put our 40+ years of experience to work for your case!

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.

Some of the most common issues include:

  • Speeding: Because trucks are so large and difficult to control, it is especially important that they are 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 are here to help. We can begin your case by carefully reviewing the facts pertaining to your accident, identifying whether aggressive driving was involved, and determine who may be held accountable and liable for the damages you and your loved ones suffered.

Ready to Take Action? Call Our Firm Now.

Truck drivers have a responsibility to drive safely on the road, especially due to the fact that their vehicles are much larger than your average passenger vehicle. When these individuals fail to adhere to guidelines, rules, and a duty of care, it can lead to devastating accidents. Our firm is ready to hold the negligent parties involved accountable for their violations!

Now is the time to retain a qualified New York City truck accident lawyer. Call our firm at (212) 577-9325.
