New York Truck Accident

Being involved in a truck accident in New York is often traumatic, and damages can be amplified because of the size and weight of trucks and other commercial vehicles. Whether you have been involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler or a delivery truck/van, you should contact a lawyer immediately to discuss your legal options for compensation.

Unsafe drivers might expose the public to extraordinary dangers. Because of such high risks, drivers with commercial driver’s licenses (CDL) are required to follow strict safety regulations, including vehicle inspections, maximum drive-time rules and cellphone laws that prohibit CDL drivers from using anything but a hands-free mobile device.

It is critical that you speak with an attorney before making any statements regarding your claim or accepting a settlement. Obtaining the compensation that you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages depends on professional legal work, advocacy and timely filing of your injury claim. A trucking company’s insurance provider will get to work immediately and will go to great lengths to limit and even deny your claim.

Our team will handle all legal aspects of your case and ensure that you receive proper medical care during the course of the legal process. Step by step, we will guide you through investigation, discovery and deposition phases. We will build a comprehensive case designed to achieve your maximum, deserved compensation either through settlement or trial. The potential for full compensation is greater in a truck accident claim than in almost any other type of motor vehicle accident.

Trucking companies are liable for injuries in the following situations:

  • Driver error, including driver fatigue and impaired driving
  • Negligent hiring
  • Failure to perform proper safety inspections
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Inadequate securing of cargo
  • Inaccurate driver logbooks

In semi truck, tractor-trailer, construction truck, box truck and delivery truck cases, we put the full resources of our firm to work. We are committed to your full recovery.
