Truck Driver Negligence
Were You Seriously Injured In A Truck Crash?
Truck drivers spend countless hours on the road and, therefore, must take care to keep themselves healthy and alert when driving to prevent any potentially catastrophic incidents. Unfortunately, both drivers and trucking companies cut corners and act recklessly in their attempts to save time and money, risking the lives of other people they share the road with. When their actions cause an accident, injured victims deserve the chance to file a lawsuit to secure compensation to cover any medical bills or damages caused by the crash.
Our NYC truck accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm have spent decades fighting for the rights of injured victims in New York, and are committed to providing the same level of legal representation that has earned us national acclaim for as long as our services are needed.

How Are These Accidents Caused?
During the discovery process of a truck accident lawsuit, our attorneys will look into the circumstances leading up to the crash, including whether the truck was properly maintained, if the driver was taking the necessary time to rest, and much more. With more than 40 years of experience, we understand what to look for and know how to go about finding the information we need. Some of the factors we look for include:
- Whether the driver was distracted by their phone, mobile device, etc. before or during the crash
- Whether the driver was following the rules of the road, tailgating, improperly changing lanes, etc.
- Falsified maintenance records, inspection logs, driver’s logs, etc.
- Driving in a reckless manner because of weather conditions, road gradient, visibility, etc.
- Whether the driver was fatigued from driving past their mandated limits or failing to take care of themselves
- Drug or alcohol use
