NY Truck Accident Attorneys at HURT-911®

If you have an injury from a truck accident in New York, you likely have serious injuries.  You may be entitled to compensation for your:

  • Vehicle damage
  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Past lost wages
  • Future lost wages and
  • Pain and suffering

Trucks are usually insured for a lot of money because they are usually owned by companies and there may be more than one insurance company.  Tractor-trailers, also known, as 18 wheelers which are Class 8 commercial trucks may be insured by several insurance companies.  Some trucks are owned and operated independently, and some are run by national companies.  One, two or even more insurance companies may insure the truck and trailer.

Tractor-trailers can weigh up to 80,000 pounds and often cause very serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, head/brain injuries, or death.  If a wrongful death claim is pursued, there are usually other legal fees involved for the estate which we provide without charge.

While we eagerly represent people with less serious injuries, we can provide concierge services for people who have serious injuries, and for people very seriously injured by a truck with a lot of insurance, we can even provide someone to help you on a daily basis.

Some factors which prove trucking company negligence and need to be discovered include:

  • Compensation programs that encourage truck drivers to rush and violation of state and federal regulations due to rushing
  • Failure to maintain the truck properly
  • Failure to properly train truck drivers and
  • Failure to properly load the truck

We often use trucking experts who will examine the truck involved in the accident together with driver logs and company trucking logs, the (CDL) Commercial Driver’s License history, manuals, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Act (FMCSA), and the New York State vehicle and traffic law.  Proof of a pattern of intentional violations may provide punitive damage awards.

Trucking accidents can happen on the Long Island Expressway, on local roads, or even in your house as seen in this photo!

Since injuries from trucking accidents are extremely valuable, preparation of your case is extremely important. The three most important parts of your case are the investigation; your deposition testimony; and your physical exam by the insurance company doctors.

We prepare our clients to testify like lawyers.  When it’s time for your deposition testimony, instead of being nervous, you will be confident when answering questions. Take a look at how we prepare our clients for deposition testimony.

While other lawyers send their clients alone to physical exams by insurance company doctors, we always go with our clients.  Not only do we go with you but we also bring our own doctor with us.  Take a look at what we do when it’s time for you to be examined by the insurance company doctor.
