Because tractor-trailers are extremely dangerous vehicles, New York has
placed extensive regulations and laws in place in order to keep other drivers safe.
If a truck driver or a truck driver ignores these laws and regulations, they are
likely to be liable for any injuries that result:
- Vehicle weight
- Drivable hours
- Truck maintenance
- License eligibility
- Size limitations
- Hazardous materials
- Accidents and Drug testing
It is also vital that a crash be investigated by a New York truck accident
lawyer immediately afterwards, as some insurance companies are known to try to
settle a case without a lawyer, resulting in victims receiving less money than what is
necessary to cover their injuries.
