A large commercial truck, such as a tractor-trailer manufactured by Freightliner, Kenworth, Mack, or Peterbilt, may be 20 times the size of a conventional passenger car when pulling a trailer. Given the extreme disparity between the weight and mass of commercial trucks and regular passenger cars, it is not hard to imagine how dangerous it is for the occupants of a regular car when they get in an accident with a big rig—not to mention the effects that will happen. The Rego Park truck accident lawyers of Levy Borukh Law represent individuals who were injured in New York trucking crashes due to the negligence of others.
Large commercial trucks must be maintained and examined to ensure that that are in safe working condition, and trucking companies have a responsibility to inspect their trucks to make sure that they are properly maintained. When truck parts, such as the brakes, brake lights, trailer hitches or the engine, are not in safe working condition, accidents can happen and cause disastrous results.
The fact is that smaller passenger vehicles simply cannot contend with these trucks in the event of an accident. Which makes Large truck accident cases quite a bit different from other car accident cases. Because of the inherent danger that these huge vehicles pose to other drivers, there are numerous laws and regulations at both the federal and state level to ensure that truck drivers are safe. Common causes of truck accidents are driver fatigue, lack of training, overweight trucks, drunk drivers, distracted driving, road hazards, and speeding.
