Liability For Blasdell Semi-Truck Accidents
Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year in truck accidents. Many of these crashes are due to truck drivers that follow other vehicles too closely. Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code 1129, “The driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard for the speed of such vehicles and the traffic upon and the condition of the highway.” Victims of truck accidents tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Organ damage
Any person that is injured in a truck accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. Sadly, though, truck companies will often fight hard to deny responsibility for any accident involving their drivers. A truck accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
