NYC Truck Accident
Each year thousands of people suffer an injury or killed in big rig 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. If you or a loved one has been involved in a big rig accident, it is important to take prompt action. You could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
