Unfortunately, truck accidents in New York are frequently fatal or at catastrophically injurious because of the size and power of such vehicles. Nonetheless, it is important to understand that such accidents happen all too often and tractor-trailers commonly overturn due to improper weight distribution, among other reasons.
