Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents
Because truck operators drive long hours, they are often pressured to complete their route by any necessary means. The result is shortcuts and negligence behind the wheel. Drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence.

Why Is More Money Available for Truck Accident Injuries?
In short, it comes down to the amount of insurance truck companies carry.

In fact, many car drivers only carry the minimum coverage required for New York whic is $25,000.
