Route 87 Truck Accident Lawyers

From Albany to Canada, the Route 87 New York Thruway (Major Deegan Expressway) is one of the most popular roads for trucks to travel with shipments between the two countries. As a result, trucks take up a large portion of the roadways, competing for space and pavement with much smaller cars and other vehicles. Cars can easily get boxed in and when it is winter, one small patch of ice or snow can quickly turn a scenic drive into a terrifying situation.
