We Know How to Prove the Most Common Causes of NYC Truck Accidents
We investigate every motor vehicle accident case we handle, collecting evidence and building a case to support recovering compensation for our clients. We understand the most common causes of truck accidents and the numerous factors that cause and contribute to them, as presented by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration studies. This may include:
- Aggressive or reckless driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Drowsy driving or falling asleep behind the wheel
- Excessive speed
- Overloaded trailer
- Distracted driving
- Improperly loaded trailer

In almost every case when the truck driver or trucking company is at fault in this type of accident, it is because:
- They fail to obey transportation laws.
