Federal Case Helps Accident Victims to Recover from Trucking Companies

On July 31st, a federal judge in the Western District of New York reinterpreted a Congressional law to make it easier for truck accident victims to recover from trucking companies for injuries caused by accidents with the companies' trucks. The law in question was the Graves Amendment to the Safe Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Act. This Amendment allows companies that rent vehicles to avoid liability for any accidents caused by the person driving a rented vehicle. The New York federal judge ruled that this Amendment did not protect trucking companies from liability for the mistakes of their truckers.
