Holding Truck Drivers Accountable For Distracted Driving Crashes
Truck drivers work long hours on the road. The temptation to multitask or stave off boredom may lead some to use cell phones or other handheld devices while on the road. The use of such devices can cause a driver to become distracted and may have disastrous consequences. At the law firm of Herbert S.

Fighting For Compensation For Serious Injuries
Although use of a hands-free cell phone is not illegal in New York, truck drivers have a duty to be aware of their surroundings. If using a hands-free cell phone makes a truck driver distracted and causes an accident, he or she may be negligent. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that drivers who use hand-held devices are four times more likely to be involved in a crash that results in a serious injury.
A serious injury may involve broken bones, traumatic brain injury, back injury, a burn injury, neck injuries and spinal cord injuries. Our dedicated Manhattan attorneys will work with medical and financial experts to demonstrate your need for compensation for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering and any additional related expenses.
We Will Hold All Responsible Parties Accountable
While individual truck drivers who act negligently are responsible for their actions, we will also work to hold all other responsible parties accountable for their actions. For example, if the use of a cell phone is forbidden under company policy, the driver’s employer may be responsible as well. We will mount a thorough investigation into the circumstances of your accident in an effort to hold all parties accountable and maximize your compensation.
