Truck drivers are adults. Each individual commercial truck driver makes his own decisions. It is the driver who decides whether to sleep or party before a shift, it is the driver who decides whether to drive aggressively or courteously, and it is the driver who decides whether to use a cell phone while driving or pay attention to the road.

Yet, a trucking company may still be responsible for your injuries if you've been hurt in a New York truck crash.

How a Trucking Company Can be Responsible for Accident Injuries

A trucking company has a responsibility to comply with laws and regulations and do its part in preventing truck crashes. If a trucking company fails to do what is required, then it may liable, or partially liable, for your accident injuries.

For example, consider a situation where you:
  • Were hurt by an inexperienced driver or a driver with a known medical condition. A trucking company may be responsible for your injuries if it failed to properly screen the driver.
  • Were hurt by a tired driver, a speeding driver, or a driver who was using a cell phone. A trucking company may be responsible for your injuries if its company policies encouraged or permitted the behavior of the driver.
