Truck Accidents in New York 

Because of the sheer size of trucks, you are likely to see catastrophic results stemming from truck accidents. Trucks can weigh an astounding 80,000 pounds, which means that they are capable of causing serious damage in an accident. In 2021, it was reported that 16,467 large truck accidents took place in New York due to the reckless acts of others. These accidents can almost always be prevented but continue to take place due to negligent drivers. Because drivers spend a long period of time on our roads and are under pressure to meet deadlines, they are more likely to engage in distracted driving or even fall asleep behind the wheel, risking the lives of all who share our roads.
