More About Trucking Accidents in Long Island

It goes without saying that the sheer mass of a commercial truck, whether a tanker, semi, big rig or 18-wheeler, can cause incredible amounts of property damage and extensive injuries to those involved in an accident with such a vehicle. Truck drivers must hold to high driving standards and are responsible for keeping their vehicle in proper working condition. A truck on the road that has not been properly maintained or a driver who loses focus for even a split second can mean devastating consequences.
