Queens Improper Truck Driver Training Attorney
Injury-causing and fatal truck accidents can be traced to a wide range of causes, from honest driving mistakes to willful regulatory violations that create unacceptable risks for everyone else on the road. As part of our law firm's commitment to thorough, relentless accident investigation, we will work to determine whether the truck driver who caused your crash was properly hired and trained.
Were You Victimized by an Inexperienced or Known Dangerous Driver?
Trucking companies are required to perform background checks on the drivers they put on the road and take into account factors such as:
- A driving record that includes numerous traffic violations or accidents
- A driver's history of alcohol or drug abuse
- Driver inexperience operating a specific type of vehicle
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations cover many aspects of over-the-road truck driver qualifications, licensing and hiring practices. New York State laws, rules and regulations may also have been violated in your case. Our professional legal team, led by accomplished personal injury lawyer Nussin S. Fogel, will thoroughly investigate your crash involving a semi or other commercial vehicle and apply all relevant laws in the effort to maximize your recovery.
Holding Companies Accountable for Putting Profit Over Safety
Trucking companies and their insurers go to great lengths to protect profits and avoid liability for accidents. At a time when you may be incapacitated or grieving and intensely worried about your future, there is no substitute for dedicated, experienced legal counsel. We are prepared to prepare the strongest case possible for you and advocate for you in negotiations or at trial.
We encourage you to contact us at the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel as soon as possible after a trucking accident that injures you or a family member. If your case ultimately calls for a New York City negligent truck driver hiring attorney, you will have the necessary knowledge and skills on your side.
