Why You Need a Bronx Truck Accident Attorney
Determining who is at fault in a truck accident can be much trickier than in other injury cases, and requires an in-depth investigation into who is liable. It might immediately seem that the truck driver should be held responsible. However, there are likely a number of other parties that handled the truck or its load, and could potentially be liable. For instance, if a manufacturer did not install the brakes on the vehicle correctly, the trucking company did not perform regular maintenance, or the party that loaded the cargo onto the truck did so improperly. In these cases, those parties could be liable for a collision in addition to the driver, or individually, if the driver was being responsible and traveling safely.
Identifying each liable party is critical to your case and obtaining the compensation you need. Failing to name an at-fault party can significantly hurt your case, or even cause it to be thrown out entirely. A truck accident attorney is used to dealing with cases against truck drivers and trucking companies, and has the resources and experience to ensure you have sufficient evidence to be successful in your claim.
Common Injuries in Bronx Truck Accidents
Truck accidents often result in catastrophic and life-changing injuries due to the sheer size and weight of the vehicle. People who are seriously injured commonly suffer:
Traumatic brain injury
Spinal cord injury
Blunt trauma injuries or organ damage
Severe bone fractures
Back and neck injuries
Loss of limbs
Lacerations or disfigurement
Whiplash or soft-tissue injuries
As the third most densely populated county in the country, trucks pose special safety concerns to other vehicles and pedestrians in the Bronx. Accidents are unfortunately an all too common occurrence, especially on corridors such as Fordham Rd (from Bronx River Pkwy to University Heights Br), Kingsbridge Rd (from Fordham Rd to Exterior St), Grand Concourse (from E 138 St to Mosholu Pkwy), E 138 St (from Madison Ave Br to Locust Av), and others according to the New York Department of Transportation.
