Insight from Our New York City Truck Accident Lawyers

There is absolutely no excuse for any truck driver using their cell phone while driving. Drivers who do this and trucking companies that condone it are ignoring their legal and moral responsibility to prevent severe, potentially fatal trucking accidents.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City truck accident lawyers pursue personal injury and wrongful death claims against negligent truckers and trucking companies. Our lead attorney, David Perecman, has been practicing law in New York for more than 40 years. We are honored to represent clients throughout Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Long Island, Westchester, and the surrounding areas.

Was the Driver Who Hit You Talking on a Cell Phone?

There is no question that cell phone use by truck drivers is extremely dangerous. Many states have outright banned drivers from using handheld devices at all. At our firm, we have seen the tragic results of accidents caused by distracted driving.

Texting or talking on the phone while driving can lead to:

  • Serious property damage
  • Devastating injuries
  • Hefty medical bills
  • Time missed from work
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Various other expenses

Our New York City truck accident attorneys are dedicated to holding truck drivers accountable for accidents that happened due to their violation of cell phone laws. If you hire us to handle your case, we can take steps to obtain the driver’s cell phone records to see whether he or she was talking or texting at the time of your accident. This information may prove crucial toward helping you get fair compensation for your injuries.

Was Texting While Driving a Factor in Your Accident?

Since 2010, it has been illegal for anyone driving a truck regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation to read or send text messages while behind the wheel. If your accident was caused by such blatant negligence, do not hesitate to reach out to our team today. We are just a phone call away and are passionate advocates for victims of semi-truck, big rig, tractor-trailer, and similar truck accidents.
