Commercial truck drivers have a duty to drive safely and take appropriate precautions to protect the public from harm. Semi-truck drivers and other commercial vehicle operators who fail to take special care for the protection of other drivers can cause serious or even fatal injuries.

Congress understands the unique danger presented by commercial vehicles and has enacted federal trucking laws that require truckers to take adequate rest breaks and which require other precautions that are designed to reduce the frequency of trucking accidents. Unfortunately, truck driver errors are still the cause of many motor vehicle accidents.

Examples of truck driver errors include:

  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving
  • Truck overloading and weight violations
  • Failure to properly secure loads
  • Failure to check brakes, tires, and lights
  • Failure to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles
  • Failure to take proper precautions in adverse weather conditions

Helping Truck Injury Victims Get Compensated

If someone close to you was killed in a truck accident including those involving a truck jackknife, you may be entitled to additional compensation for the loss of your loved one, and the loss of that person in providing for those left behind such as spouse, children and/or elderly parents.

Hiring a Trusted Albany Truck Accident Lawyer

You vs. the trucking company is usually an unequal match.

At this point, it’s in your best interest to not discuss the case with the involved party or the insurance company until you consult with an attorney.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
