On the road, a car is no match for a truck in a collision. Large commercial trucks may be carrying loads that make allow them to weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and their large size and weight mean that they have much more momentum in a collision than would be experienced by a car. This means that it takes a lot longer for the larger trucks to stop. Because of the difference in size, a driver or passenger of a car is much more likely to suffer a serious injury than the driver of a large truck. Getting adequate compensation for this type of injury can be a complex challenge, as more than one party may be found negligent. The legal professionals at the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates of New York are dedicated to getting you the compensation you need if you’ve been injured in a truck accident.
