New York Truck Accident Proves Fatal

Rockland County Truck AccidentTwo people were killed in a New York car accident involving a tractor-trailer, two box trucks and another vehicle. According to an AM New York news report, the fatal truck accident happened near exit 14B of Interstate 87 in Suffern. Officials say the truck was attempting to pass slower traffic, lost control and struck a box truck head on. The tractor-trailer tipped over, a box truck burst open littering debris across the highway. Two people were killed and a third suffered minor injuries.

Tractor-trailers can leave a wake of devastation when they’re out of control. When a truck driver is speeding, makes an unsafe lane change, attempts to pass slower traffic without yielding or fails to obey traffic control devices, it puts everyone on the road at risk. Head-on and side-impact collisions with tractor-trailers often result in traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, multiple bone fractures, internal organ injuries and even death.

If you’ve lost a loved one in a New York truck accident, you may be wondering how to pay for the resulting funeral expenses while coping with lost income, benefits and other financial issues. A truck accident attorney can help you hold the at-fault driver and their employer responsible for your tragic loss.

When a truck is involved in a crash, the victim or their family will have to deal with the truck driver, the truck driver’s insurance, the trucking company, the owner of the truck and a number of different potentially responsible parties. It can prove challenging to receive fair compensation and trucking companies will stop at nothing to protect their bottom line.

A skilled New York City truck accident lawyer is often needed to preserve evidence, build a case and hold the at-fault parties accountable for the crash. You may be able to seek fair compensation for the resulting medical bills, suffering, loss of consortium, lost future wages and other related damages. Contact Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP at (212) 986-7353 to discuss your case today.
