Truck Accidents in the East Village

FDR Drive along the East River is a main throughway for trucks to get in and out of New York City via the East Village.  In addition, St. Marks Place, a busy shopping area in Alphabet City, is populated with trucks making deliveries to and from businesses. With these massive vehicles common in the area, the risk of them being involved in a collision is great. In the aftermath of an East Village truck accident, it is important to consult an experienced attorney who can advise you of your legal rights.

Even though trucks make up less than five percent of vehicles on the road, collisions with trucks account for ten percent of fatal accidents. Aside from causing deaths, these crashes can lead to life-altering injuries like amputations, paralysis, and traumatic brain injuries. These accidents are usually caused by one or more party’s negligence. Drivers, or sometimes their employer trucking companies, are negligent when they act unreasonably, breaching the duty of care that all road users owe each other. Common examples of actions that may qualify as a breach of the duty of reasonable care include: driving while overly fatigued; improper training or hiring of a driver; speeding; inadequate maintenance or inspection of vehicles; or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Drivers as well as the trucking company responsible for their employment can be held accountable for negligent acts that cause an accident. A knowledgeable East Village truck accident lawyer can help determine the parties liable for your harm. Extensive evidence is often necessary in these cases which include:

  • A victim’s medical records
  • Driving logs documenting meal and rest breaks
  • Vehicle maintenance records
  • Black box data
  • Accident reports

Truck accidents that take place in the East Village will be investigated by the New York Police Department’s 9th Precinct, which patrols the area between E. 14th Street, Broadway, and E. Houston Street to the East River. Once the investigation is complete, an accident report will be issued determining the analysis of how the accident occurred. Copies of these reports may be obtained from the precinct’s headquarters at 321 E. 5th Street or online through the NYPD’s Collision Report Portal.
