Representing Commercial Truck Drivers And Their Employers
Without the trucking industry, the U.S. economy would collapse, and Americans would be left without access to food and basic supplies. Yet the trucking industry continually faces threats from many directions such as the rising cost of fuel and new environmental protection restrictions. In addition, stricter laws are passed nearly every year regarding commercial driving regulations, DWI penalties and cellphone use.
At the law office of James M. Wagman, I represent commercial trucking companies charged with violating state and federal regulations. Whether your company or one of your drivers has been charged, I can help protect your rights.
As an attorney with over 35 years of experience, I know New York traffic, DWI and CDL laws. For a free consultation, please call 518-291-4803 or contact me online.
Avoid Costly Fines And Increased Insurance Rates
I represent commercial trucking companies that have been charged with state and federal trucking regulation violations, such as:
- Size and weight violations
- Logbook violations
- Maintenance violations
- Equipment violations
- Hazardous materials violations
A conviction for these violations will mean expensive fines and additional penalties. Your insurance carrier will be notified of the violations as well and may raise your premiums or terminate your coverage.
I can also assist your company with driver infractions such as:
- Reckless driving
- Hand-held phone use
Commercial drivers who are convicted of a traffic or DWI offense will cost your company more money in insurance premiums.
You can trust in my experience and skill as a negotiator and litigator. To make an appointment with a New York commercial trucking company attorney, please call 518-291-4803 today.
Defending Commercial Drivers
New York state holds individuals with commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) to a higher standard than noncommercial drivers. Any traffic violation or drunk driving conviction will affect your CDL, whether or not you were driving for work when you were ticketed. When the stakes are this high, you need an experienced traffic defense attorney.
Whether you are a local resident or an out-of-state driver, I can help you fight for your CDL. To make an appointment, please call my office today. Your consultation is free.
Do Not Risk Losing Your CDL
All CDL holders in the U.S. must report moving violation convictions and DWI convictions to their employers within 30 days, even if they were driving their personal vehicles for nonwork purposes when they were pulled over. A conviction may cause the driver to lose his or her CDL temporarily or permanently.
I represent commercial drivers ticketed or charged with:
- Hand-held cellphone use
- Reckless driving infractions
- Leaving the scene of an auto accident
A conviction for a commercial driver has greater consequences than fines and possible jail time. I understand that losing your CDL means losing your job. I will fight for your license and attempt to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
