Common Types of Trucks Involved in Trucking Accidents

Garbage truck accidents: Garbage truck accidents often cause serious injuries such as brain injuries, spine injuries and other internal injuries.

Transit vehicle accidents: Public vehicles throughout New York are often involved in accidents. Our lawyers are available to assist with the legal process following a transit truck crash.

Semi/18 Wheeler accident: When a large truck or commercial 18-wheeler strikes a much smaller vehicle such as a car or motorcycle, catastrophic injuries can result. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns and broken bones are common. These accident injuries can also prove fatal. They can be grounds for a wrongful death legal action if driver negligence played a role. If one of these accidents happened to you or a loved one, you owe it to yourself and your family to speak with an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney.

Parcel Delivery Truck accident: It’s not unusual for local delivery trucks to be poorly maintained. A business owner’s neglect of trucking equipment maintenance may lead to a serious accident.

Bus & Transportation Vehicle Accident: A commercial vehicle driven on the streets like a passenger bus, is large, heavy and lumbering, and has multiple blind spots. In fact, it even requires a specially licensed and trained driver just to legally be operated. When a bus gets into a wreck with a smaller vehicle, or a person on board is thrown about like a rag doll, victims are often forced to deal with lifelong suffering and need for pain management, among other inconveniences.

As a large and potentially dangerous presence on roads and highways of the US that are occupied by smaller passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles such as eighteen-wheelers and other large freight carriers present dangers that are unique and sometimes deadly. When involved in a crash, large commercial trucks typically cause much greater damage and harm than do accidents between two cars.
