Long Island Truck Accident Attorney
Getting the Answers & Trustworthy Guidance You Need
The trucking industry is essential to the American economy. The transport
of goods on our streets and highways forms a critical part of the distribution
network that we depend on for economic prosperity and consumer satisfaction.
However, in the trucking industry, time is money and every hour those
goods spend on the road is an hour that they are not delivered to the
customer who is going to pay for them.
Drivers are pressured to deliver goods ahead of schedule and this leads
to dangerous driving practices, such as:
- Driving despite terrible weather/road conditions
- Stress-related inattentiveness
One of the most common causes of truck accidents is drivers who fall asleep
at the wheel.
The inevitable accidents that follow from these dangerous and negligent
actions can have tragic consequences. Trucking companies will get their
insurance companies on the scene as soon as possible - sometimes before
the police arrive. They will do everything in their power to avoid paying
the large claim that you will need to cover your health costs. While sometimes
the driver himself will be held accountable, sometimes the case can be
brought against the trucking company that rewarded unsafe driving practices.
