Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP

Albany Lawyer Representing Wrongful Death Victims of Truck Accidents

Former Insurance Defense Attorneys

Tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles are responsible for some of the most horrific accidents that occur on our highways. Most passenger vehicles weigh only several thousand pounds. A fully loaded semi can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and even more if it is overloaded.

18 wheelers have such a high potential for injuring others on the highway that almost every facet of the commercial trucking industry is tightly regulated. These regulations are meant to make trucking as safe as possible. But, accidents and wrongful deaths still happen. Even when every precaution is taken, a truck accident may be caused by any one of a number of conditions, including:

  • Driver error
  • Driver fatigue
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Speeding
  • Improperly loaded cargo
  • Overloaded trailer
  • Poor road conditions
  • Inclement weather

At Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, our lawyers know how important it is that you are able to secure some sense of justice after a loved one has been lost. Our skill and decades of experience allow us to present exceptionally strong cases for our clients. We have secured numerous multi-million dollar awards throughout our firm's six decade history.

Another advantage that our attorneys bring to the table is the fact that we are all former insurance defense attorneys.
