Truck Regulation Violations
Were You Seriously Injured In A Truck Accident?
Trucks cause some of the most devastating accidents on the road and injure thousands of people every single year. Even though the federal, state and city governments have passed many laws and regulations intended to keep everyone safe on the road, reckless and negligent drivers, trucking companies, and manufacturers violate these laws. While drivers don’t usually do so intentionally, the trucking companies and manufacturers may in an attempt to save money for their businesses. If these negligent, reckless, or intentional actions or choices led to a crash, you may be able to file a lawsuit against some or all parties involved in that decision.
For the past three-plus decades, our NYC truck accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm have provided hundreds of injured victims with passionate and dedicated legal representation. Through our efforts, we have successfully recovered more than half a billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients and are committed to providing each new client we represent with the same level of care that has earned us our recognition. If you were seriously injured in a truck accident, contact us today to discuss your case and plan out your next steps.
In most cases, truck drivers walk away from crashes relatively unharmed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), occupants of the truck only made up 7.8 percent of fatalities and 17.7 percent of injuries during a multi-vehicle accident. This dramatic discrepancy between those in a truck and those facing down an 80,000-pound vehicle indicates just how important these regulations are. Some of the most common violations include:
- Hours-of-service violations
- Driving under the influence
- Improperly loaded trucks
- Overloaded trucks
- Driving without a license or insurance
- Inaccurate or falsified log books
- Poor hiring or training practices
- Failing to properly maintain their trucks
This is by no means a complete list. Any violation could result in a serious crash, and the parties responsible should be held liable for their actions.
