Holding People Accountable
Accidents at warehouses happen too often in New York City, and across the nation. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, dozens of workers are killed after getting pinned by an object, such as a large truck, every year. Almost all of these accidents are considered preventable when employers provide their workers with proper oversight and safety training.
In New York, truck accident attorneys can help protect the rights of workers and innocent victims who’ve been harmed by someone else’s negligence. When a person is killed by a tractor-trailer or other large vehicle, their family has the right to file a wrongful death claim to compensate family members and beneficiaries for the death of a loved one.
However, these matters are often complicated and require several key pieces of evidence to obtain a successful settlement or verdict. This evidence could include:
- Vehicle maintenance records

- Prior accidents at the facility
- Review of safety requirements
