NYC Attorney for DUI/DWI Trucking Accidents

Over-the-road drivers, commonly referred to as truckers, are required by federal and state regulations to never consume alcohol while they are in possession of their big rigs. Negligent or reckless truckers often violate these regulations while on the road, which then leads to drunk driving accidents involving unsuspecting drivers and their passengers.

If you have been injured by a drunk truck driver, contact a New York City lawyer for DUI/DWI trucking accident claims. At the preeminent personal injury law firm of Powers & Santola, LLP., our truck accident attorneys have decades of experience achieving significant verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients. Talk to us today to learn how we can use our experiences and successes to evaluate and pursue your injury claim.

Holding the Truck Driver Responsible

The first party we will pursue a claim against when we take on your case is the truck driver. We will gather all evidence available to help prove the truck driver was at fault and that he or she was drunk at the time of the accident. We will then seek to obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Seeking Trucking Company Liability

Often, truck drivers do not have enough insurance coverage and other funds to fully compensate you after the DUI/DWI trucking accident. If this is true in your situation, we will also seek to hold the trucking company liable for your serious injuries. We can do this through the legal concept known as agency, which means that a boss can be held liable for his or her employee’s (agent’s) actions.
