Hudson Valley Truck Accident Lawyer

New York laws regarding truck accidents are different from laws governing claims and litigation involving car accidents. Specific rules pertaining to the operation and maintenance of semi-trucks apply in injury cases related to collisions with these types of big rigs. Specific documents and evidence must be secured to ensure an award of full compensation for the injured person.

At Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C., each of our Hudson Valley personal injury lawyers understands the requirements needed to recover damages. Do not hesitate to schedule a free case evaluation with our firm at your earliest convenience. Your case is bound by the New York statute of limitations, which is three years from the date of the accident.

Trucking Regulations in New York

If you have been injured or lost a loved one from a trucking accident, your life can drastically change because of many negative effects. We can help identify the party that is liable for your damages. New York's tractor-trailers are bound by many federal and state trucking regulations. Under New York law, the following have been regulated:

  • Size of the truck
  • License eligibility
  • Inspections
  • Accidents and drug testing
  • Hazardous materials

In addition, every truck company must comply with New York State accident laws that regard the weight of the truck and the drivable hours. If a trucking company or truck driver fails to comply with the regulations, they can be liable for any injuries that result from an accident.
