New York Drunk Driving Lawyers
Truck drivers are held to the same, if not even more rigid, safety expectations as other motorists on the road in regards to substance use. If these truck drivers choose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, regardless of the reason, they may seriously endanger themselves and anyone else on the road with them. Unfortunately, accidents involving an 18-wheeler and another vehicle in traffic can prove devastating, often leaving the other motorist with severe injuries that may require immediate medical care.
If you or someone you love has sustained an injury in a drunk driving accident with a truck driver, the driver who made such a reckless decision should be held liable for the repercussions of that decision.
