Dangerous Williamsburg Brooklyn Truck Crashes

Trucks occupy many of the busy streets in Williamsburg, such as Bedford Ave and Flushing Ave. Drivers of these massive vehicles are sometimes not only in a hurry to make deliveries but can be careless when parking to unload. These trucks can be especially dangerous to pedestrians in the area. If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention. It is also advisable to consult a knowledgeable Williamsburg truck accident attorney as soon as possible to make sure the proper evidence is preserved and your rights are protected.

Although commercial trucks are only 4 percent of the vehicles traveling the highways, these massive tractor-trailers are involved in 13 percent of fatalities due to traffic accidents nationwide. A recent report indicated that in only one month, there were approximately 300 truck crashes in Brooklyn alone. With a population of almost 80,000, it is likely that a resident of Williamsburg Brooklyn will be significantly impacted by one of these collisions. Most of the time, around 87 percent, it is human error that leads to a truck accident. This also means that often someone is at-fault for causing a victim’s injuries. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver Fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted driving practices
  • Improper loading of cargo

Drivers who act negligently are obviously liable for the harm they cause. Additionally, in truck accident cases, a trucking company responsible for hiring and monitoring their employees can be held vicariously liable. A seasoned Williamsburg Brooklyn truck accident lawyer can assist you in determining the appropriate parties who are responsible for your injuries.

Claims Arising Out of Truck Accidents

If you’ve been injured, or a relative has died, because of a collision with a truck, you may be entitled to compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death suit. These claims require a showing a negligence by the defendant or defendants. Negligence is present when the defendant has breached his duty of reasonable care, which causes the victim’s injury or death, and damages result. In many truck accidents, it is a negligent truck driver who has breached his duty of care to another motorist, pedestrian, or others on the road. To establish negligence, it is important to present evidence such as driver and truck maintenance logs, cell phone records, witness statements, as well as police and accident reports from the scene. Copies of Williamsburg Brooklyn accident reports may be obtained from the 90th Precinct of the NYPD, located at 211 Union Avenue or the 94th Precinct, located at 100 Meserole Avenue, depending on where your collision took place. Victims injured by a negligent truck driver can be awarded damages for past and future medical costs, loss of income and earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering. Family members who have lost loved ones in a fatal accident may also be compensated for funeral and burial costs as well as loss of support.
