Truck, Semi, & Tractor Trailer
New York Semi-Truck, Eighteen Wheeler, and Tractor-Trailer Crashes in New York
Truck accidents, semi-truck accidents and collisions involving tractor-trailers or big rigs in New York involve a complicated set of laws and investigation of large amounts of evidence. The trucking industry is heavily regulated, so accidents involving trucks are generally much more complicated than typical car or pick-up truck accidents. Not only are the lawsuits more complex, but injuries are often devastating, including paralysis, brain injuries, severe burns, and death.
The New York state and the federal government have enacted laws designed to keep the public roadways safe, as well as the drivers traveling on the roads. For years, the trucking industry and drivers have violated these laws, resulting in staggering injury, damage and loss. For these reasons, and others, it is very important to contact an attorney immediately if you have been involved in an accident with a tractor trailer.
