An accident that involves a truck or trailer has a higher chance of being severe
compared to an automobile accident. Why? Trucks and tractor trailers are larger and heavier, resulting in more serious injuries. That’s why truck drivers have considerably more safety regulations for how and when they drive and the type of cargo that they can carry. Yet, even veteran truck drivers can find themselves fatigued or have their view of the roadway obscured.
Worse, there are many truck drivers on the road who lack the experience and concern for the cars around them. The result is that cars and light trucks can find themselves going up against a vehicle that weighs much more than their own vehicle. The impact of a truck against a passenger car is highly destructive and can lead to critical injuries.
Truck accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Just a few of are:
- Inattentive truck or tractor-trailer drivers
- Poor road conditions
- Impaired drivers
- The result of avoiding another driver
Auto accidents can result in serious injuries, including but not limited to:
- Back or neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Crippling injuries
- Concussions and traumatic brain injury
- Serious cuts and open wounds

experienced personal injury law attorney team. Attorney Pirian Law will aggressively work on protecting your rights, while fighting for the compensation you deserve as a truck accident victim.
Should you get into a truck accident:
Check yourself and passengers for injuries: Don’t ignore wounds that might
seem minor or that don’t hurt. These can become serious injuries later, and
shock from an accident can prevent you from feeling pain in the moment.
- Call 911 or report the accident: If the accident is serious and there are injuries, call for emergency services. If the accident is minor and the vehicles are off of the thruway, alert police so that they can make a report.
- Collect details: Get the details of anyone else involved in the accident, from motorists to pedestrians. Be sure to collect relevant insurance information from the other drivers as well as the name of the company responsible for the truck and its driver. Take photos if you can and get the names and number of any witnesses.
- Be careful what you say: Don’t admit fault or discuss your actions immediately prior, during, or after the accident. Don’t apologize, as others may see that as acknowledging fault. Do give the important details to law enforcement.
