Corey Harrison Injured in 18-Wheeler Accident in Dix Hills, NY


Dix Hills, NY — Two men were hospitalized following an 18-wheeler accident in Dix Hills, New York, on Monday, August 17, 2015. The accident took place on the Long Island Expressway, near exit 52.

Accidents like this one can be a little tricky, because sometimes drivers cause a lot more damage than their insurance policies are able to cover. That looks like it might be the case here. Reports say that the driver was in a van that sideswiped an 18-wheeler and crashed into another vehicle. It’s very possible that his insurance will be spread thin between the two vehicles he’s damaged (not to mention the other driver he put in the hospital). However, if the driver’s van was commercially owned, then his employer would effectively be liable for the crash.

Pictures from the scene of the accident show the driver’s van lying on its side. However, no commercial decals can be made out. That’s probably the best place to start. Once the victim’s know who owns the van, they’ll have a better idea of how this accident is going to be handled.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
