New York Semi Truck Accident Lawsuit
A New York semi truck accident lawsuit involves claims against both the negligent truck driver and the trucking company. Trucking companies and their drivers have strict state and federal regulations they must follow. Federal law limits the number of hours that semi truck drivers can drive in a given day. Drivers are also subject to testing for drugs and alcohol, both randomly and in the event of a semi truck accident (trucking accident). Violations of state and federal laws can provide the basis for establishing fault on the part of the trucking company and the driver.Trucking companies and their drivers are required to keep log books, time sheets, and other records. These records may be crucial to a claim based on the driver’s lack of alertness or fatigue problems.
