“Personal injury is a case that someone can file if he/she suffers harm due to someone else’s mistake or negligence. The plaintiff may sue persons who may be both directly or indirectly involved, as long as they played a role in the event that caused the injuries.
Take for example the box truck accident that happened in Queens in April this year. According to a witness, the truck driver was trying to beat a red light and unexpectedly smacked into a Honda, and then a school bus, and finally ran into a fruit market where one woman was unfortunately pinned under the truck. The accident also injured a child, who was immediately transported to the nearest hospital. In this situation, the child and the woman are both eligible to file a case and demand for compensation to cover their medical bills and other expenses related to their injuries. If the woman is unable to work for a certain period in time due to her injuries, the truck driver, or the trucking company must also pay for her lost
“Personal injury cases are filed when someone is injured as a result of another person’s mistake or negligence. Among the many grounds for personal injury cases, truck-related accidents are one of the most common. In 2013, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles reported that large trucks were behind 11,452 crashes, of which 7,530 resulted in property damage, 3,828 caused non-fatal injuries, and over 94 led to deaths. Any form of vehicular accident is dangerous, but the level of danger multiplies when there are trucks involved because of their size and power.
Human error is often a factor in truck accidents, with driver inattention and tailgating on the top two of the list. Anyone who was injured due to a truck accident must immediately report the incident to the police and seek the help of a personal injury attorney in Brooklyn, NY to file a claim. “
