Truck drivers and trucking companies have a responsibility to share the road with other motorists and follow all traffic and motor carrier laws. Each is also bound by additional requirements designed to protect the safety of drivers on New York's roadways. When they fail to do this, the results can be devastating.

We'll Help You Answer 'How Could This Accident Happen?'
While there are countless actions that can lead to a devastating semi truck accident, many commercial vehicle crashes involve one or more of the following factors:
- Drowsy drivers
- Improperly loaded cargo
- Drunk driving
- Phone calls and text messaging
- Negligent hiring and training practices
- Defective or poorly maintained equipment
- Logbook violations

How Do You Choose The Right Attorney?
Truck accident cases are different from other motor vehicle accident cases in several ways. For one thing, truck drivers and trucking companies are subject to special federal and state trucking laws and motor carrier laws. Our attorneys are experienced at holding them accountable for breaking these laws and causing you harm.
Also, in any commercial trucking accident, there are several potential parties that could be legally responsible for compensating you. We will carefully investigate your case in order to identify who is responsible for your injuries and who you should make a claim against.
For instance, the driver owns the tractor, a second company owns the trailer and a third company may have put the two parties together. Sometimes this is done to limit the exposure that any one of these entities has for the harm caused by a major accident. At Bendall & Mednick, we will pursue all avenues of compensation on your behalf to ensure full and fair compensation for your injuries.
