Nearly 2,400 people suffer injuries and more than 100 die each year in truck accidents in New York State, often because of negligence on the part of the truck driver or those responsible for maintenance. If you were hurt or a loved one killed, contact The Law Offices of Elliot S. Schlissel for a free consultation to discuss your case.
The Devastation of Truck Accidents
Injuries in a collision with a truck tend to be very severe because of the tremendous force and the difference in weight of the vehicles. Trucking accidents often result in traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, amputation, disabling neck and back injuries, broken bones, facial injuries, and damage to soft tissue and internal organs. Victims often are crushed and trapped in the wreckage, delaying critical medical treatment.
Negligent Causes of Truck Accidents
Most truckers are professional, cautious drivers. But a percentage of Nassau County trucking accidents are avoidable tragedies caused by negligence:
- Drivers inattentive due to lack of sleep
- Drivers under the influence of illegal drugs or stimulants
- Drivers without proper training or a history of negligence
- Poor maintenance of brakes, tires, and lights
- Unbalanced loads, overweight trucks, and unsecured cargo
