Truck accidents often result in devastating injuries

Large commercial trucks fill the roadways of New York. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and reach 72 feet in length. When these trucks are involved in accidents, it is not uncommon for those inside traditional passenger vehicles to sustain severe injuries, including:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Crush injuries
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • And more

According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), there were 20,549 total large truck crashes across the state during the latest reporting year. Out of these incidents, there were 70 fatal crashes and more than 4,200 injury crashes reported.
