Liability For North Bellmore Car Accidents
There are a number of factors that could contribute to a semi-truck accident. According to the FMCSA, “Fatigue, drinking alcohol, and speeding are major factors in motor vehicle crashes overall. Although their presence does not always result in a crash, these three factors, as well as other driver, vehicle, and environmental factors, can increase the risk that a crash will occur.” Victims of truck accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones

Many victims of truck accidents may not realize the full extent of their injuries for several weeks or months after a crash.
