Albany Tailgating Accident Lawyers
When a collision between a passenger vehicle and a tractor-trailer occurs, the occupants of the passenger vehicle are the ones who are most likely to suffer injuries or death. As the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) reports, out of the nearly 3,200 people who died in large truck crashes during a recent year, 89.7 percent were either drivers or passengers of the other vehicles.
Many of these truck accidents involve “tailgating.” This is a term that refers to one vehicle following dangerously close to the vehicle in front.
If you or a loved one has been harmed in a truck accident involving tailgating, it is crucial for you to get help right away from an experienced truck accident attorney. In many cases, the cause of a tailgating truck accident may be a negligent truck driver or faulty or poorly maintained truck equipment. If this is the case in your accident, you may be entitled to just compensation for your losses.
