Rear-Ended by a Truck

Statistics show there are more than 300,000 crashes every year involving large trucks and the number of truck accidents have been steadily increasing since 2010.

Since big rigs can often weigh 10 tons or more, it can take these vehicles much longer to stop. In hazardous weather, it’s that much more important that truck drivers compensate for wet, snowy, slushy, or icy pavement.

Sometimes, big rig drivers fail to put enough space between their truck and the traffic ahead of them resulting in a serious crash. In many of these kinds of cases, the Bronx truck accident attorneys at Cellino & Barnes can help you get compensated for your injuries.

Sideswiped by a Truck

Tractor-trailers are so large that a truck’s blind spot can often encompass hundreds of square feet on each side. A smaller vehicle can sometimes get trapped in these enormous blind spots as a truck changes lanes or merges into traffic.

Although many large trucks are now equipped with safety features to help avoid these accidents, it is still one of the most common kinds of crashes among 18-wheelers. These accidents are particularly dangerous because they are incredibly sudden.

At Cellino & Barnes, our Bronx truck accident lawyers have years of experience handling truck crash cases and we have a track record for getting the best results possible for our clients.

Causes of a Truck Accident

Federal guidelines restrict truck drivers to 77 driving hours each week and 11 hours at a stretch. Unfortunately, surveys show many truck drivers violate these laws, putting them at a higher risk for driver fatigue.

Speed, the distance between other vehicles, negligence, and the lack of training or experience can also be factors leading to a truck crash.

After an accident, truck companies and their insurance agencies sometimes deny their driver was at fault. That’s why it’s important to get experienced attorneys on your side to fight for you and your family.

Our experienced Bronx accident lawyers know what to look for to get the best results for you after your truck accident.

At Cellino & Barnes, we don’t think to ask questions should cost you. That’s why our truck accident lawyers will personally evaluate your case for free. Call (800) 888-8888 or Contact Us now for a free case evaluation.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
