Understanding Truck Accidents in NYC
Truck accidents can be very severe and can result in terrible injuries, property damage, and even death. When talking about truck accidents, you could be referring to large commercial trucks or even smaller personal trucks in some cases or vehicles such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks (with or without trailers), large tractors, and more. Due to their large size and weight in comparison to other vehicles on the road, these vehicles can cause a lot of damage very quickly.

Truck Driver Training
In order to operate a large truck on the roads in New York, a driver needs to go through extensive training and often times obtain a special license. This added training is very important, and needs to be kept up to date at all times. If a driver has not been properly trained, that can be a cause for a lawsuit against the driver, their insurance company, or the company that employs the driver. Attorney Alexander Karasik will look into this type of thing and see if it is applicable to your case.
Due to the potential for serious damage that a large truck poses, truck drivers have additional responsibilities that they need to meet. If they fail to take the necessary precautions and end up causing an accident, the law will typically be on the side of the victims in the accident because of the risk that the trucks pose. Understanding what types of rights and responsibilities a truck driver will have is very important when there has been an accident and potentially a lawsuit.
Due to the fact that the vast majority of large trucks on the road are directly or indirectly working for larger companies, it is quite likely that they will have good attorneys representing them should they get into an accident. To win a personal injury case against a truck or other company, you need to have a hard working, experienced attorney who is very familiar with all the necessary laws and can successfully argue for you in court. Attorney Alexander Karasik has this experience, knowledge and dedication; he has successfully litigated truck accident cases in the past with great success.
