Serious truck accidents that result in injury or death can result from a wide range of causes that range from aggressive driving mistakes to jackknifing to regulatory violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) on behalf of trucking companies. In addition to investigating the circumstances of your accident, we will also work to determine whether the trucking company properly hired and trained the driver, inspected and maintained the truck and otherwise acted in a responsible manner.
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations outline many aspects of truck driver qualifications, licensing and hiring practices. Violations of New York and New Jersey state laws, rules and regulations can cause serious accidents, and those companies should be held liable. The truck accident lawyers at KGG will thoroughly investigate your crash involving a semi-truck and apply all relevant laws in the effort to maximize your recovery.
Did the Trucking Company Break the Law, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR)?
Trucking companies and their insurance carriers often go to great lengths to protect their profitability and avoid liability for accidents. After a trucking accident, this will include attempting to mitigate damages by casting blame on other drivers or by concealing their own negligence that led to the accident. With experienced legal counsel, you can ensure that your rights are protected in truck accident settlement negotiations and at trial.
