Defending Upstate Residents Against Negligent Truck Drivers
No matter how careful you are, the dangers posed by trucks on the road can place you at increased risk of being involved in an accident. Often, trucking accidents are caused by driver fatigue, drug or alcohol impairment, improperly loaded cargo, making illegal maneuvers, or failure to check blind spots. Whatever the cause of the accident, truck accident victims could be eligible for sizable compensation following the accident.
Damages and Compensation from Trucking Accidents

- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering

You could also be eligible for punitive damages, which are awarded in cases of extreme negligence.
Defending Victims of Serious Injury from Trucking Accidents
The sheer size of large trucks also means that the probability of a passenger car driver sustaining serious injuries or a worse fate is significantly higher.
