When You Need a NY Trucking Accident Attorney
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, it is essential that you hire attorneys who are knowledgeable in the state laws and truck regulations where the accident occurred.
Filing a claim can be complicated to do alone, and is time sensitive.Â In order to successfully prove your claim, an investigation needs to be started immediately and can include truck accident reconstruction engineers, investigators, photographers and other professionals.
The trucking company and their insurance company will have their own accident response team that will be dispatched immediately to orchestrate a defense against your truck accident injury claim. Due to the complexity of these types of cases and what is at stake, only the most experienced personal injury attorneys should handle a trucking accident claim.
In 2006, 385,000 large trucks (semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and other types of commercial trucks) were involved in crashes â€“ and took the lives of 4,995 people, while harming another 106,000.Â This is because a fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh over 80,000 pounds, while an average passenger car weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. It is clear that a collision between the two is a recipe for serious, even fatal, injuries.
