We Help You Recover Compensation for Any Truck Accident in Brooklyn
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has tight regulations and maintains high standards for its drivers, helping to lower the danger that comes from big trucks being much larger, heavier, and more destructive than other cars on the road. But no rules, tests, or background checks can completely eliminate the risk of sharing the road with heavy trucks including tractor trailers, dump trucks, cement mixers, and other construction vehicles.
When accidents happen, it is important to hold the responsible parties liable. Not only does it allow you—the victim—to get paid what you deserve, but it serves as a check on the trucking company and as an incentive to improve safety for the public in the future.
No matter how your truck accident occurred, the truck accident lawyers serving Brooklyn at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can help you receive the best financial recovery.
Careless or Reckless Truck Driver
We will investigate your accident and look for evidence that the driver was careless or reckless. Examples of careless driving behavior include speeding, disregarding a traffic control signal or device, tailgating, unsafe lane changes, too tight turns that cause back wheels to jump over the curb and sidewalk, and driving while texting or talking on the phone.
The trucking industry requires drivers to take periodic breaks from driving to get rest. Drivers must also keep a logbook in which they record their driving hours and their rest hours. We will examine the driver’s logbook for evidence that they were driving on too few hours of rest.
If your accident occurred because a truck jackknifed, its load separated from the cab, or it failed to brake in time to avoid a collision, we can look for evidence of mechanical failure that may allow us to pursue a defective product claim against the truck manufacturer.
Drug and Alcohol-Related Truck Accidents
We will also order toxicology reports and look for other evidence that the driver was impaired by alcohol or drugs—including prescription medication and legal supplements such as caffeine pills (often used by truckers)—at the time of the accident. If so, we will use the driver’s intoxication as evidence of negligence and liability.
We can look at cell phone records and other documents that may show the driver was distracted at the time of your collision.
Pedestrian or Bicycle Accidents Involving Trucks
Truck accidents do not necessarily have to involve another motor vehicle, especially in a walkable city such as Brooklyn. If you were traveling on foot, or by a bicycle, skateboard, or another non-motorized form of transportation and were hit by a truck, we can help you seek to recover compensation.
You might be eligible for compensation even if you were partly at fault for your Brooklyn truck accident. Do not avoid calling a truck accident lawyer because you are afraid the accident was your fault.
A Truck Accident Lawyer Will Fight for Compensation From the Responsible Parties
We can help you fight for compensation from every party that shares in the liability for your truck accident injuries. These include:
- The truck driver: If the truck driver is liable, we will hold them accountable and pursue compensation from them.
- Trucking company: If the driver was an employee or contractor of a trucking company, we can often hold the company liable for its employee or contractor’s negligence.
- The truck manufacturing company: The truck manufacturer could be liable if a mechanical flaw or defect led to or contributed to your accident.
- The truck repair or maintenance garage: Some accidents are the result of maintenance issues such as defective brakes, missing or defective mirrors or other poorly maintained vehicle safety systems. I
