Semi-trucks play an important role in our society. They move goods from place-to-place, allowing consumers to have access to the goods and services they desire. Yet, despite these benefits posed by the trucking industry, these massive vehicles, their drivers and truck companies also pose significant risks to innocent motorists. This is because the sheer size of these vehicles can leave a wake of devastation and death when driven negligently.
Semi-trucks and other large commercial vehicles are an essential part of commerce in New York and across the nation. However, it takes care, training and a special license to operate a commercial vehicle. Because of the size and weight of these vehicles, if a truck accident occurs, it could result in serious injuries and fatalities. Thus, it is important for semi-truck drivers to operate their vehicles with due care.
