Truck Driver Negligence

Numerous federal and state laws, as well as regulations issued by trucking companies themselves, spell out in great detail the responsibilities of truckers on our roads. For example, laws and regulations for truckers issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration cover topics including the following

  • Drug and alcohol testing requirements
  • Registration and insuring of trucks
  • Preservation of records
  • Special training
  • Adherence to hours of service requirements

Furthermore, the New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) has its own set of regulations and recommendations such as the following:

  • Off-hour load deliveries
  • Designated routes
  • Parking regulations
  • Weight and size limits
  • Adherence to traffic rules

A detailed investigation into the causes of a truck accident will include a review of all known and documentable evidence. Eyewitness testimony, the driver’s log, the truck’s “black box” and other evidence will help determine whether the truck driver is liable to compensate an injured person, and to what extent. The personal injury lawyers at Herbert S. Subin consider all options when pursuing compensation for a motor vehicle accident victim.
