Truck Accident LawyersA New York truck accident with a passenger car can result in serious injury to the occupants of the car. In 2008 in New York State alone, there were over 3,000 traffic accidents involving large trucks. These truck accidents resulted in more than 100 fatalities.
A large truck, tractor-trailer, or big rig is generally defined as a truck with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 10,000 pounds. These commercial motor vehicles are subject to regulations established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). For example, FMCSA has established Hours-of-Service Regulations. This regulation limits the hours an operator of an eighteen wheeler, tractor-trailer, or other commercial motor vehicle (CMV) can drive.
FMCSA has also established a texting ban upon CMV drivers while operating in interstate commerce. These regulations are designed to reduce fatal collisions while at the same time maintain efficient motor carrier operations.
A large truck accident may be caused by the driver’s negligent operation of the truck. This may include the following:
- Alcohol Involvement
- Following Too Closely
- Aggressive Driving
- Drowsy Driving
- Driver Inattention
- Texting while Driving
- Unsafe Speed
When a truck driver operates a large truck in a careless manner, innocent lives are put at risk. Every year there are serious and fatal accidents caused upon our roadways by negligent truck drivers. Some of these roadways include the New Jersey Turnpike, Cross Bronx Expressway, Long Island Expressway, Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, and the Jackie Robinson Parkway.
