"When we follow the whole chain of events, we can see this may not necessarily be momentary inattention by a driver, but again the culmination of a series of events that put that trucker there and caused the crash."
If you live in the New York area, you might have noticed more trucks on the road lately. Local media reports one of the main reasons for that is that trucks are changing their usual routes to avoid more expensive toll roads. This is adding a considerable number of miles to the trucks, causing the drivers to spend more time on the road and extending the opportunity for truck crashes to unfold, potentially hurting other drivers in the vicinity.
Michael Greenspan is a personal injury attorney based in White Plains, New York. In this video he explains that the longer a truck is on the road, the greater chance there is that the truck will be involved in an accident and injuries may occur as a result. He says that this is causing an increase in New York truck accidents. He urges anyone involved in a truck crash to call an attorney as soon as possible.

When a trucking accident occurs on the road and another driver is injured as a result, Greenspan and his fellow attorneys look for answers to the following questions: Why was the trucker in that area? What was he or she supposed to do? What was the training program in place for that employee?
Companies that fail to properly their drivers put everyone at risk.
Trucking companies that care for their employees generally offer thorough and comprehensive training to their employees. When a crash injures another driver, Greenspan maintains that what might seem like a moment of inattention is actually the result of many prior events that took place, which could have been avoided with proper training.
Unlike in most cars, trucks have technology in place akin to having a manager sitting in the passenger seat. This technology can tell how far the trucker was driving, where they were when the crash happened, what time they left, what their speed was, and what the trucker’s action was. This is all vital information that should be obtained as soon as possible.
Generally there is more than one insurance agency involved, so it’s wise to get help navigating through this situation. A good attorney will work with the insurance companies to make sure your medical bills are paid and any lost wages as a result of the crash are taken care of.
The idea of hiring a lawyer after such an event may produce some anxiety, but it’s important to note that personal injury attorneys work on contingency.
Personal injury attorneys such as Greenspan won’t ask for a retainer fee or charge you an hourly rate for their services. Their goal is that the insurer or company responsible for the damages you experienced as a result of their shortcomings compensates you for your pain, lost wages, and other potential economic damage. If your attorney is unable to recover any money for your case, you owe them nothing. If you or someone you know had been injured in a truck crash and desire legal recompense, it’s important to seek legal help immediately.
