On February 9th, 34-year-old Oscar R. Albarracin of New York was driving a tractor-trailer rig in Fairfax, Virginia when he lost control of the vehicle causing his load to shift, which resulted in the rig overturning and losing a portion of the load as it scattered all over the highway. 

The accident resulted in the right exit ramp from I-495 to I-66 West as well as all lanes of westbound I-66 being shut down for most of the morning, including rush hour as people were making their way to work.  Albarracin had a passenger in the truck at the time; the passenger sustained no injuries, and Albarracin was check out at Fairfax Hospital where it was determined he had only minor injuries.

Fairfax police stated that speed was a factor in the crash.

This accident could have been much more serious, resulting in injuries or even fatalities to other motorists.  Large trucks, tractor-trailer rigs and other commercial vehicles can be a threat to other drivers, as these vehicles often way 80,000 pounds or more. 

In addition to the sheer size and power of these vehicles, the driver’s of them are often operating on little or no sleep.  Some drivers may not be qualified to be behind the wheel, and often drivers of large trucks take drugs to keep them awake so that they can make a scheduled delivery on time.

Being involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer rig or other big truck often results in life-altering injuries or worse.  If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a driver of a big truck or commercial vehicle, contact us today.

When tragic accidents like this happen, the results can be devastating. If you are ever involved in an accident such as this, immediately obtain medical attention and then seek legal assistance to ensure that you are not financially devastated. Unfortunately these situations can have tough repurcussions.

You likely deserve compensation, and those responsible for your injuries should be held accountable.  At Brown Chiari, we take big truck accidents seriously and work aggressively to protect your rights.
