New York Truck Driver Negligence Lawyers

Representing Those Injured by Careless or Reckless Truckers

Both the federal government and New York state have strict rules and regulations governing truck drivers. When truckers fail to abide by these regulations, accidents frequently occur, injuring or killing innocent passenger car occupants, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and other individuals.

At the premier personal injury law firm of Block O'Toole & Murphy, we are committed to helping injury victims throughout New York recover maximum compensation for the damages they have suffered due to truck driver negligence. With an impressive record of verdicts and settlements — including more than 300 recoveries in excess of $1 million* dollars — our attorneys provide clients with personalized service and attention.

Examples of Potential Truck Driver Negligence

Unfortunately, many truck accidents happen each year because truck drivers fail to operate their vehicles in a responsible manner. Examples may include:

  • Truck driver fatigue caused by driving more hours in a row than is permitted
  • Speeding in order to increase profits
  • Distracted driving involving cellphone use or other activities
  • Driving drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Engaging in overly aggressive driving or road rage
  • Failing to check mirrors before changing lanes
  • Tailgating or driving too closely behind other vehicles
