When Cars and Trucks Collide
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 296,000 large trucks were involved in crashes in 2009 that killed 3,380 people and injured 74,000 more. Out of the truck accidents involving fatalities, 102 occurred in New York. Statistics also show that 75 percent of the fatal accident victims were occupants of another vehicle – often a passenger car.
These numbers are alarming. They point out the glaring truth that auto/truck collisions do happen regularly, and when they do, occupants of the car are three times as likely to come out the losers.

Two Points to Remember After a Car and Truck Accident
To preserve and protect your rights after a car and truck collision, remember this:
- Don't give a statement to your insurance company or the other party's insurance company until you consult an attorney. The insurance companies may attempt to trick you into assuming liability for the accident or into agreeing that your injuries are minor – even if they aren't.
- Don't sign a settlement agreement from your insurance company without first obtaining skilled legal counsel. Often, settlements fail to take into account the full amount of compensation a car accident victim needs and deserves.
