The Seriousness of Accidents Involving Semi Trucks

A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. In contrast, a typical automobile weighs about 4,000 pounds. When these trucks collide with other vehicles, the result is almost always tragic. Although truck drivers are trained professionals, they are often held to unreasonable timelines and schedules.

When truck drivers cut corners, innocent people can be harmed or even killed as a result. A lawyer can help you recover financially from a horrible truck accident. We know the ins and outs of filing a truck accident claim in New York. Our attorneys can and will be of great assistance as you seek compensation from the at-fault party.

Truck Accident

Examining the Evidence and Finding all Responsible Parties

On the surface, it may seem like truck accidents are similar to automobile accidents, but nothing could be further from the truth. Truck accidents are, in fact, far more complex in a number of ways. For example, in every truck accident, there are a number of parties that potentially share responsibility. The owner of the truck cab and the owner of the trailer may be different. The company responsible for loading the trailer may be yet another separate responsible company.

Our New York City truck accident law firm will fully investigate the circumstances of your crash in order to find out who specifically was at fault. We have the resources and relationships with respected experts, such as accident reconstructionists, who can help identify the responsible party, making your claim against the at-fault driver stronger.

Truck Accidents and Insurance

Another issue that makes truck accidents substantially different from automobile accidents is the insurance coverage. Most trucks are required by federal law to carry a minimum of $750,000 in liability coverage. Trucks that carry hazardous substances are required to carry far more. With this much at stake, you can be certain that these companies will fight resolutely to prevent such a significant financial loss.
