Helping Victims Of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents are very serious situations, and they can have devastating consequences for a family. Commercial trucks are significantly larger than the average passenger vehicle, weighing about 20-30 times more. For this reason, the majority of injuries are sustained by the occupants of the car.

At times, insurance companies may try to avoid paying you or your family the compensation that you deserve. That’s why having a legal team on your side who understands the intricacies of truck accident cases in Brooklyn and knows how to fight big insurance and trucking companies.

Rear-End Truck Crash in Brooklyn

With so many tractor trailers on the road at any time, it may come as no surprise that there are thousands of accidents each year. Due to the immense size of these vehicles, they can cause significant damage to standard passenger vehicles. Rear-end collisions are a common type of accident because of the massive weight of an 18-wheel vehicle. While a small car can almost stop on a dime, a commercial truck will not stop immediately, potentially crashing into a vehicle in front of them. Additional factors that compound the difficulty of stopping these vehicles include:

  • Following the car in front too closely
  • Not paying attention due to fatigue
  • Precipitation (rain, sleet, or snow) which causes unsafe road conditions

Our Brooklyn truck accident lawyers have seen the effect that these incidents can have on a family, and they are ready to help you in this difficult time.

Distracted Truck Driver

Distracted driving affects drivers of all vehicles, but it can have disastrous consequences for truck drivers. There are the usual distractions from cell phones and GPS, but there is another distraction common among truck drivers: fatigue.

Fatigue is particularly prevalent among truck drivers as they may work long hours to ensure that deliveries are completed on schedule. Although the federal government has placed a limit on how many hours a driver can put in each week to make sure that drivers do not become overly tired. However, drivers may end up exceeding these limits, creating a potentially dangerous situation if they are unable to focus.

The Brooklyn truck accident lawyers at The Barnes Firm work to gather all the facts about your case to hold trucking and insurance companies responsible and get you the compensation you deserve.

Truck Accident Injuries

Injuries from truck accidents can be very serious to occupants of the vehicle. Our attorneys have seen people involved in truck accidents in Brooklyn who suffered from:

Some of these conditions may require years of ongoing medical treatment. Sadly, some truck accidents result in fatalities — over 3,000 each year.
