A state trooper in New York Kristofer Kinnear was hurt by a tractor trailer while responding to a different tractor trailer accident. A tractor trailer tried to pass Kinnear on Interstate 88 when the driver of the tractor trailer lost control crashing into Kinnear. Kinnear was taken to a local hospital. The truck driver was ticketed for speeding and performing an unsafe lane change.
Tractor trailer accidents often have catastrophic consequences. Luckily officer Kinnear was not seriously hurt in this event. But even still such an accident is a traumatic experience. Victims of these accidents often wish to seek justice through a lawsuit. Unfortunately this is rarely easy. I have worked on these types of cases for twenty years and I have seen trucking companies and their insurance carriers go to incredible lengths to avoid being held responsible for an injury. But the truth is that the law is on your side and with the help of a experienced 18 wheeler accident attorney you can bring even trucking giants to justice.
