Injured on the New York State Thruway? Call E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy
New York State Thruway Accident Lawyers
The New York State Thruway Authority brags that the Governor Thomas E. Dewey Thruway, running 641 miles, is the longest toll road in the United States. It encompasses major highways, including I-87 and I-90, that extend across the state. Every year millions of passenger vehicles and commercial trucks rely on this road for safe travel between the city and communities throughout New York and beyond. The system is primarily maintained without tax dollars, which makes the Thruway Authority liable for maintaining safe road conditions and traffic discipline. Unfortunately, ongoing road construction, unsafe road design along some stretches and poor conditions make the toll way one of the most dangerous highways in the state.
