New York City Garbage Truck Accidents Remain Deadly

garbage-truck-accident-lawyer

Too many accidents involving New York City garbage trucks end badly, even when no one dies. This remains true since many of these large sanitation trucks weigh about 72,000 pounds. Pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists -- and even passenger vehicle occupants -- rarely escape major injuries after being hit by one of these massive vehicles. Even smaller garbage trucks weighing between 50,000 and 60,000 pounds often wield deadly force when they hit the average American passenger car that weighs between about 2,600 and 4,400 pounds. One of the most tragic New York City garbage truck accidents to occur during recent years happened in...

It May Be the Only Option: Spinal Fusion Surgery After A Truck Or Car Accident

The Mayo Clinic likens the rubbery cushions or discs found between back vertebrae to jelly donuts, in that they encase a soft center in a tougher exterior. When the tougher exterior tears, some of the softer material may push out of the disc. These herniated discs are also sometimes called ruptured discs or slipped discs and may require spinal fusion surgery after a truck or car accident. Severe Pain Possible This protruding material may impinge on nerves. This may cause pain which often radiates down an arm or leg. In some instances, the pain is excruciating and debilitating. Nerve impingement may also...

turck-accident-bronx-lawyer

Many workers often find themselves being asked to drive a company car or their own vehicle while handling employer tasks or errands. Bronx commercial vehicles include Amazon trucks, UPS trucks, 18 wheeler semi-trucks, box trucks, local company vans, and even small cars driven by workers while in the course and scope of their employment. While most of these trips turn out fine, others end in serious and costly accidents. Who should cover the cost of paying your medical bills if you are injured – or if you injure others? Whose insurance policy should cover all the property damage, loss of earnings,...

Large Truck Accident Statistics

When it comes to deaths in large truck accidents, the deaths are usually to people in passenger vehicles. This is because people in these smaller vehicles are vulnerable. Trucks can weigh up to 30 times as much as normal care. They are also taller and have larger ground clearance which means that the smaller vehicles can get stuck underneath the truck in crashes. Trucks can also have issues with braking, and they can take a long time to break. When bad roads are a factor, the time it takes for a large truck to come to a complete stop is even...

NYC Sanitation Truck Accident Law Firm

Sanitation Truck Accident Lawyers - Frekhtman & Associates

Back in November of 2019, the NYPD began cracking down harder on all private company garbage truck drivers since they’re causing far too many deadly accidents. During the past several years, over 20 people have died due to these careless drivers. However, many NYC sanitation truck drivers are also recklessly endangering public safety. Accident reports reveal that garbage trucks are often driven too fast, down the wrong side of the road or too close to pedestrians and bicyclists. During one week of the crackdown, the NYPD wrote over 500 tickets for moving violations and issued 555 criminal court summons. Many of...

NYC Commercial Truck Accidents: FAQs, Definitions and Statutes

truck car accident - Frekhtman & Associates Attorneys

Without a doubt, the most dangerous type of vehicle to collide with in an accident is a large commercial truck. Even the smaller ones often weigh far more than the average passenger car that weighs between 3,000 and 4,000 pounds. As might be expected, injured passengers of other vehicles (as well as cyclists, pedestrians and motorcycle riders) often die of their injuries. People who manage to survive accidents with commercial trucks are often left paralyzed – or suffering from traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries – or a vast array of other medical problems. While many people improve greatly...

New Technologies Can Help Truckers Decrease Fatigue and Accidents

trucker-accident-lawyer-new-york

Veterans of the trucking industry like Juan Ochoa, who currently manages a group of about 80 long-haul trucks in Kent Washington, estimate that roughly seventy percent (70%) of all trucking accidents are caused by fatigue. Ochoa also asserts that once truck drivers become too tired, they’re no longer able to respond quickly enough to road dangers. Aware of this problem, many businesses are now creating and marketing products that can help truckers remain fully aware of when they’ve become too drowsy to drive. Dr. Daniel Bongers’s Australian company SmartCap currently markets a line of industrial safety products that can help most...
