NYC Truck Accident Lawyer
Each year thousands of people suffer an injury or killed in big truck accidents, leaving families deep in debt from medical bills and funeral expenses. It's a proven fact, according to our NYC Truck Accident Lawyer that nearly one in eight big truck, accidents end in a wrongful death, far exceeding the ratio for small vehicle accidents. Big truck accidents are also referred to as an 18 wheeler, Big Rig, tractor trailer, semi truck or a commercial vehicle.
Big trucks pose a danger to other motorists because of their size and mass. It's simple physics: When a large truck traveling at a high rate of speed crashes into a smaller vehicle, odds are that the smaller vehicle is going to receive substantially more damage. Consequences of big truck accidents are severe compared to accidents that would have been mere fender benders if smaller vehicles had been involved. Even low speed crashes between a big truck and a smaller car can end in tragedy because of the sheer mass of the larger vehicle.

There are a variety of factors that can cause a traffic accident. Size and weight are major factors, but other factors include the negligence of others. For example, a wreck can be caused by a failure of trucking companies to adequately train, hire and supervise their employees. Driver fatigue and unsafe business practices may also contribute to a wreck. DWI drinking or drug use (DWUI) by a driver are an all-too frequent cause of accidents. Defective brakes or others faulty parts may lead to a product liability claim.
You may also suffer injury in a big truck wreck because of the negligence of medical personnel responding to the accident, giving rise to a medical malpractice claim.
