Plus, it’s better for your case to have medical documentation of any injuries as soon as possible after the accident. Then, you need to contact a Manhattan truck accident lawyer at Blitz Law Group, LLP to represent your case.

Who Is Liable for Your Injuries

If you were injured in a truck accident, a Manhattan, NY truck accident lawyer can help you recover financial compensation for the losses you have suffered. This compensation can include recovery for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more. It is important to note that truck accident cases can be more complex than other types of accident cases because of the issue of liability. There is often more than one liable party. If you have been injured in a truck accident, contact the legal team at Blitz Law Group, LLP.

Truck Driver Negligence

One of the most common reasons why truck accidents happen is because of a negligent act or behavior on the part of the truck driver. Distracted driving, in particular, is a major issue for truck drivers. Take for example sudden stops. Due to the use of air brakes, plus the huge size of these vehicles, it takes longer for a large truck to stop than other vehicles. If a truck driver is fiddling with their GPS instead of watching the road in front of them and there is a sudden slow down in traffic, they may not realize that slow down in time, resulting in a tragic rear-end crash into the vehicle in front of them.

Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs is also another major factor in truck accidents. The long hours on the road, by themselves, can lead to substance abuse issues, as well as the use of stimulants to try to stay awake.

Trucking Company Liability

Fault for a truck accident can also be the fault of the trucking company for their failures. Some of the more common issues a Manhattan truck accident lawyer finds in the cases our firm has handled include:

  • Failure to hire experienced drivers
  • Failure to oversee or address issues with drivers, i.e., substance abuse issues, traffic violations, etc.
  • Failure to regularly inspect vehicles and repair any mechanical issues
  • Putting pressure on truck drivers to meet unrealistic delivery schedules
  • Failure to make sure cargo is properly loaded and secured

Other Liable Parties

In addition to the truck driver and trucking companies, there are potential other liable parties, depending on the circumstances of the crash. For example, if there was a defect in the brakes on the truck that caused the crash, then the party responsible for that defect – the designer, manufacturer, or company that sold that defective party – could be held liable for the victim’s injuries. In addition to brake defects, other common defects that contribute to truck crashes include steering mechanisms and tires.

In addition to defective truck parts, there could be road defects that contributed to the crash, including potholes, and malfunctioning traffic signals. In these situations, the municipalities that oversee these items could be held liable.
