Commercial semi truck accidents occur fairly frequently in New York and elsewhere. Sadly, the outcomes for victims generally result in fatalities or severe injuries. Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are particularly common following a truck accident, and the effects of this type of injury are typically life-changing.
Auto collisions in New York and elsewhere occur for a number of reasons. Some are purely accidents, while others are the results of negligent actions of one of the drivers involved. A truck accident is no different. When a crash with a commercial truck happens, it is okay to wonder if the truck driver's actions led to the wreck and if that individual and/or his or her employer may be held accountable for any damages one has sustained.
