Albany Truck Driver Fatigue Accident Lawyers

Truck Driver Negligence Lawsuit. Serving all of Upstate New York

Every year thousands of motorists are injured in accidents involving semi trucks and other large commercial vehicles. One common cause of tractor-trailer accidents is truck driver fatigue. Since truckers are expected to log significant miles and are often paid by the mile, there is a strong incentive for truckers to push themselves to the point of exhaustion. When truckers are not alert and fail to drive safely, innocent motorists can suffer serious or fatal injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy. Our legal team has considerable experience in truck accident claims. We will fully investigate the cause of your accident and vigorously pursue the full compensation you deserve.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
