Semi Truck Accidents in New York: State Statistics

  • Nearly 78% of all semi-truck accidents involve a commercial truck colliding with a non-commercial motor vehicle (as opposed to single-truck crashes, and collisions with bicyclists, pedestrians etc.)
  • 15% of all drivers injured in commercial vehicle accidents are semi-truck operators
  • 54% of those injured in semi-truck accidents are regular motorists driving non-commercial vehicles (including motorcycle operators)
  • 31% of those injured in semi-truck accidents are pedestrians and bicyclists
  • 67% of all drivers killed in semi-truck accidents are non-commercial motorists

Who is at Fault in a Semi-Truck Accident?

Usually, the truck driver is to blame. According to the NYDMV, 82% of all semi-truck accidents occur due to human error on behalf of the truck driver. The most common human errors made by truck drivers that cause accidents in New York include:

  • Driver inattention/distraction
  • Following a motorist too closely
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe and improper lane changes
  • Backing up unsafely
  • Speeding

The high frequency of truck driver responsiblity is both significant to driver safety and to legal action following an accident. Be very careful around large trucks. Large commercial truck drivers are often required to drive for long hours, and are often offered monetary incentives to get the job done as quickly as possible. This leads to minimizing breaks from highway driving, which can result in easily-distracted and inattentive performance. In most cases, liability is assigned to the truck driver’s employer’s insurance company.

Even though your path to receive compensation may seem straightforward, be warned that trucking companies will do all that they can to minimize the amount owed, as soon as possible after an accident.
