Liability For Syracuse 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
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
If a driver fails to slow down to avoid a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Any person that is injured due to the negligent actions of another driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help with many of the expenses that often come with a serious accident. A car accident attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
