Utica AND SYRACUSE

truck accident lawyers

With all of the renovation and construction going on around Utica, NY and Central NY as a whole, there has been a steady influx of the number of large trucks and tractor-trailers seen driving throughout the area. Fortunately, accidents involving large trucks and semis don’t happen very often. The size and weight alone could cause serious damage to anyone caught in the path of one of these massive machines. If a car or pedestrian were to be struck by a large truck or a tractor-trailer, the injuries would be catastrophic. More often than not, car accidents involving large trucks or tractor-trailers end in serious injury or death for the person not operating the heavy machinery.

 

Truck accidents are usually more complicated than the average motor vehicle accident. In a car accident, for example, usually only two motorists are directly involved. When a truck accident occurs there may also be other third parties  involved, such as the truck owner, the truck driver’s employer, or the truck manufacturer, which may increase the complexity of the case. If you are involved in an accident with a commercial truck or 18 wheeler, it is important to hire an experienced attorney. Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman are part of the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLA) and have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of truck accident cases.
