Deadly New York Fuel Truck Explosion Closes The Long Island Expressway And Draws The Attention Of Personal Injury Lawyer

A gasoline tanker makes national headlines after creating a fireball that was visible for miles.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – January 25, 2010 – In an unfortunate accident spectacular enough to make the national news, a fuel truck flipped and exploded on New York’s Long Island Expressway. Approximately 200 feet of road melted in the fire. The intense heat also melted the supports for a giant road sign, which collapsed across all 8 lanes, alerting New York injury lawyers.

The 57-year-old driver, a Brooklyn resident, was killed in the accident which occurred on Saturday.

New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman is quick to point out that this accident is as tragic as the many “unknown” accidents that happen every day.

“Approximately every 10 seconds of every day, lives are forever changed throughout the nation due to vehicular accidents,” said Perecman.

Auto accidents happen so frequently, the majority of them aren’t even newsworthy. However, friends and families of any accident victims can be left overwhelmed and in indescribable pain.

‘It’s the job of any New York personal injury lawyer to get spectacular claim for injury and loss suffered whether there are cameras on the scene or not,” said Perecman.
