Syracuse Truck Accident Lawyers

Trucks and semis are easily the most dangerous vehicles on the road. Weighing up to 40 tons, they can readily mow over, crush or crumple a two-ton car. Though truck accidents are not as frequent as car crashes, when they do occur, lifelong injuries or death often results.

In New York, truck accidents most commonly occur in the beltway of Interstates 90 and 81 near Syracuse. Collisions with trucks present a real risk for drivers who frequently use highways and public roadways.

The sheer size of semitrucks also contributes to their potential to cause immense damage. They have large blind spots and require a lengthy distance to stop.
