Drowsy Driving Truck Accidents

Brooklyn Truck Accident Lawyers Trusted in NYC Since 1983

With the nationwide shortage of truck drivers and the need to move the same amount of goods around the country, tired truck drivers are unfortunately not uncommon. Fatigue is a major culprit behind many preventable truck accidents, and drivers and employers who contribute to these accidents can be held liable for any property damage, injury, and/or loss of life that results from a collision. Victims should seek out an experienced truck accident lawyer as soon as possible to begin pursuing the compensation they are owed for the negligence of a tired trucker or irresponsible truck company.

Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices represents victims and families of truck accidents caused by fatigued drivers. If you have been injured or have suffered the loss of a family member in a truck accident, you should immediately contact a Brooklyn truck accident lawyer at our firm to discuss your options for pursuing damages. We would be happy to review your case for free to determine who can be held liable for your accident and help you understand your rights and options.

FMCSA Hours of Service Violations

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) have created Hours of Service regulations that require drivers to comply with certain rules concerning how long they are allowed to drive per shift and how often and for how long to take rest breaks. These rules were designed to curb the number of truck accidents caused by tired truck drivers who fall asleep behind the wheel or who are too tired to drive safely.

Unfortunately, however, there are still some truck drivers who choose to ignore these rules in order to make more money. Often, this involves forging service logs and continuing to drive past the maximum shift limit. When these drivers put profits ahead of the safety of others, the result is devastating truck accidents that almost always result in catastrophic injury or death to victims riding inside of smaller, lighter vehicles.
