Common Causes of Truck Accidents in New York City
Truck accidents can happen for many reasons. While semi-trucks are, by their nature, more dangerous than cars and passenger vehicles, most truck drivers are safe drivers who understand the risks on the road. Unfortunately, even the smallest distraction or lapse in judgment can cause an accident. Even one oversight during the maintenance of the vehicle can cause a problem down the road.
At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, in New York City, we understand the common causes of truck accidents and how accidents can happen involving trucks and passenger vehicles. Our firm thoroughly investigates accident claims in order to pursue maximum compensation for our clients.
