According to Syracuse.com, the New York State Police have identified 53 year old Mattydale resident Todd S. Young as the man killed on Sunday while operating a Northern Lights tow truck on the New York State Thruway. Young was providing assistance to a disabled vehicle parked on the shoulder of eastbound traffic when an Estes Express big rig struck him near Manlius.
“We are currently representing nearly 40 individuals injured in a similar incident just down the New York State Thruway,” said Syracuse tractor trailer accident lawyer Michael A. Bottar, Esq., a New York personal injury attorney with Bottar Leone, PLLC. “While that case involves a Michigan tractor trailer driving into the rear of an Ontario-based tour bus, what happened on Sunday is equally tragic.”
When it comes to prosecuting a claim against a trailer driver and his or her employer, an experienced attorney is essential because there can be complex insurance coverage and liability issues.
