New York City is the most populated city in the United States, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that trucks can be found in the city every day – carrying people, goods, and construction equipment throughout the five boroughs. Some commercial trucks can be over 30 feet long and weigh up to 80,000 pounds, making it difficult to navigate narrow city streets and congested neighborhoods. Being so large and carrying so much weight in such densely populated neighborhoods can lead to tuck accidents with severe injuries, especially when they collide with smaller vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians.
