Why Are Truck Accidents Different?

Interstate 90 runs through the center of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and most of the state. It is a widely traveled, heavily trafficked highway for trucks of all sizes. Everyone is supposed to safely share the road. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case, and that puts family vehicles in the vicinity of large, commercial trucks. When accidents involve trucks, they can devastate lives. These cases involve incredibly large vehicles traveling at generally extremely high rates of speed. And when they collide with passenger vehicles, severe injuries generally are the result.

My name is Sareer “Sandy” Fazili, and I am an attorney. I have represented clients all over Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and the surrounding area who were involved in truck, tractor-trailer and commercial vehicle accidents. People injured in these accidents face some of the most devastating injuries. I have successfully handled many of these cases and secured large settlements for those seriously injured in trucking accidents. I would be honored to help you and your family recover from injuries you have sustained in a trucking accident.

Heavy. Fast-Moving. Difficult To Control.

All commercial vehicles have a few things in common: They are large, heavy pieces of machinery that require specialized training to operate. They can include:

  • Commercial transport semi-trucks
  • 18 wheel tractor-trailer trucks
  • Bulldozers
  • Dump trucks
  • Fire engines
  • Buses
  • Snowplows

These vehicles significantly outweigh passenger vehicles that individuals and families use. Accidents involving these can lead to many types of serious injuries.

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

While the operation of commercial vehicles is tightly regulated, crashes are common. There are several reasons for this, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Overloaded vehicles
  • Dangerous conditions
  • Improper training
  • Vehicle malfunctions

What these factors have in common is that they are preventable. Giving drivers adequate breaks would mean less fatigue. Trucks can avoid dangerous driving conditions by having less demanding schedules. But those efforts cost shipping companies money, so they don’t happen.

These situations put drivers in unenviable positions. They take risks they shouldn’t take. They cause preventable accidents. They put you and your family in danger.

No Fee Without Success

I work on a contingency basis, and that means that there is no legal fee unless you receive compensation for your injuries. Let’s talk about your issues in a free consultation. Call me at The Fazili Firm at 585-504-7395 or schedule a meeting with me through email.
