Truck Accidents

Leveling the Playing Field
for Victims of Truck Accidents

Trucking companies and their insurers follow very specific action plans after an accident. In most cases, the driver will inform their dispatcher of the accident before they even call 911. The company will then inform its insurance carrier, which will then send investigators and other representatives to the scene as quickly as possible. Often, in fact, before victims are even aware of what has happened.

My name is John Kingsley, and as a personal injury lawyer with more than 40 years of experience, there is a lot I can do to prevent defendants from minimizing their potential losses at your expense. As your attorney, I can act quickly to begin an independent investigation into the accident, preserve evidence at the scene and identify potential witnesses. The insurance company has likely had a head start, but I will fight aggressively on your behalf to level the playing field.

Establishing the Cause of the Truck Accident

In the interests of public safety, the federal government and the New York State Assembly have enacted numerous laws and regulations designed to prevent huge commercial trucks from becoming 18-wheeled destroyers. Here are just some of the many questions I try to answer in my truck accident investigations:

  • Had the truck driver skipped any mandatory rest or sleep breaks?
  • Was the truck driver driving too fast or recklessly?
  • Did the accident have anything to do with poor maintenance of the truck itself?
  • Could a defective automotive product such as a hitch or brake assembly have caused the accident?
  • Did improperly loaded cargo play a role in the accident?
  • Were there any other violations of state or federal trucking regulations?
