Trucking Accidents in New York and How a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

The shocking news involving the death of one comedian and the serious injuries of actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has been a source of much discussion lately, especially when it was revealed that the driver of the truck that caused the accident had allegedly not slept for over 24 hours. The accident highlights trucking safety regulations and the impact fatigue has on drivers.

Because fatigue is often a major factor in many accidents, especially those involving trucks, U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer stated that he would like to focus on new regulations that ensure tired truckers are not on the road putting other motorists at risk. This would be a great benefit to New York City, where trucking activity is heavy within the city and the surrounding bridges and highways.
