Because of their heavy weight, large size and relatively slow stopping time, trucks have the ability to cause significant damage to individual passenger vehicles on the road. The attorneys of Neimark & Neimark dedicate a portion of their practice to protecting the rights of individuals and families who have been harmed as a result of truck accidents. We firmly believe that truck drivers and trucking companies must be held responsible for any negligence on their part.
Fatalities And Catastrophic Injuries In Truck Collisions
According to a report published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 4,229 individuals died in accidents involving large trucks in one recent year alone, making truck accidents responsible for one out of every nine traffic fatalities. Those who do not lose their lives often suffer catastrophic injuries necessitating lifelong care.
