New York Truck Accidents

Rochester Truck Accident Attorney

Semi-trucks can be among the largest vehicles on any freeway, weighing up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded and stretching up to 75 feet in length. These large vehicles can be the cause for some extremely serious wrecks. When laws are not followed, and negligence is a factor, other inhabitants of the road can suffer from severe injuries and even death in the worst cases. Due to the high demand for product and merchandise to be transported throughout the United States, these large trucks are common on various highways and freeways throughout our nation.

One serious truck accident that you must be aware of is an underride accident. Every trailer has a bar that hangs down off of the back in order to prevent smaller vehicles from traveling beneath the trailer in the case of a rear-end accident. This bar is required, by law, to be able to withstand a certain amount of force. When this bar fails, the results can be deadly as the bottom of the trailer will often scrape the hood of the car all the way back past the driver's seat until the front of the small car hits the tires of the trailer.
