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

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.
