Accidents and Crashes with New York City Sanitation Truckshttps://www.schlittlaw.com/sanitation-truckaccidents/ https://www.schlittlaw.com/sanitation-truckaccidents/#comments Tue, 26 May 2015 18:05:21 +0000 http://nylawthoughts.com/?p=810 In recent weeks, I have received a number of inquiries from people damaged when New York City Sanitation trucks crashed into their cars. In fact, I have now filed three cases arising from these inquiries. I suppose this activity is not unexpected since the City of New York paid out $17.6 million to settle 1,069 claims involving Sanitation Department vehicles in 2009. Given the volume of inquiries about accidents with garbage trucks, I thought it might be worthwhile sharing some information about these cases.
