Long Island Truck Accident Lawyer
Many roads on Long Island are shared with large commercial vehicles such as Box Trucks, Eighteen Wheelers and Dump Trucks. The weight of these types of vehicles is usually 20 to 30 times more then the average car. Therefore, an accident involving a large truck can have devastating results for the operator and passengers of smaller vehicles.
Commercial drivers are required to obtain a special license and are subject to additional laws with respect to the safe operation of their trucks on our roads. But, this is not always enough to keep everyone safe and often individuals are injured due to a truck drivers negligent driving. One of the main factors in many truck accidents is the reduced breaking ability of large trucks. A truck usually takes about 30 percent more distance then the average car to come to a complete stop. Compounding this issue is the fact that many truck drivers work long hours and are tired when operating their trucks.
