There are many car accidents occurring across our country on a daily basis. Some may be just one-vehicle accidents with minor damage while others may involve several cars and a complicated pileup. We know that a lot of accidents occur on Interstate 90 and Interstate 81 near Syracuse, but we also have to take into consideration that some of these accidents involve semis. Large commercial trucks and semis use these interstates to move products within New York and to other states.
Although some of the over-the-road drivers are very experienced at what they do, they still end up working extremely long hours. Those long hours and overnight drives can cause them to be fatigued, which could result in an unfortunate accident with another vehicle on the freeway.
So what happens when you are involved in a truck accident? Oftentimes the injuries that come from such an accident are tragic, either resulting in long-term disability or death. Weighing up to 40 tons, these trucks can cause a lot of damage to any vehicle that may be hit.
