Speeding Truck Crash
An 18-wheeler can often weigh 20 to 30 times more than a standard passenger car. This also means trucks can be 20 to 30 times more dangerous when they’re moving at high speeds along an interstate system or major state highway.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimated nearly 18 percent of all large-truck operators involved in deadly crashes had at least one prior speeding conviction.
The Long Island truck accident attorneys at Cellino & Barnes know the state laws which regulate truck speeds and the federal guidelines which truck drivers must adhere to. If you’ve been injured because of a truck driver’s negligence, Cellino & Barnes can put some of the most knowledgeable truck accident attorneys in your corner to make sure you get the best results possible.
Rear-Ended by a Truck
More than 3,900 people were killed in large truck accidents last year and another 104,000 people were taken to emergency rooms. Statistical trends show crashes involving 18-wheelers are steadily increasing while the crashes are not becoming less severe.
Most truck accidents are rear-end collisions in which a large truck strikes the back bumper of a vehicle, sending an extreme amount of force through that vehicle. Although the majority of recorded rear-end collisions are minor, a large truck can make this type of crash extremely dangerous.
At Cellino & Barnes, our Long Island truck accident lawyers have years of experience fighting for injured clients who have been hurt in a rear-end truck crash. Our experienced lawyers have a track record for getting the best possible results after this dangerous type of accident.
Sideswiped by a Truck
Each year, 97 trucks are involved in deadly New York crashes. Some of those crashes involved vehicles trapped in a large truck’s blind spot while the truck driver merged lanes.
These sideswipe crashes can be particularly dangerous because they often occur at high speeds on New York State highways. These crashes can send a small passenger vehicle into another lane of traffic, off the road completely or, in rare cases, a small car can slide underneath the belly of a tractor trailer.
The Long Island truck accident attorneys at Cellino & Barnes know how to handle these cases to get the largest settlement from the truck companies and their insurers.
If you select Cellino & Barnes to handle your truck accident case, you and your family will always be treated with respect, honesty and integrity.
