New York City Truck Accident Attorneys
New York City is a port city, and trucks move through the inner and outer reaches of the city night and day. And anyone who has spent time in New York, especially in the early morning, has seen the stream of trucks constantly supplying the city's thousands of shops, offices, hotels, and other businesses.
Unfortunately, truck accidents on New York's busy streets are common. A semi, tractor trailer or 18 wheeler can cause severe injury, and truck accident law covers the unique legal situations inherent to business-owned vehicles. If you have been injured by a truck, either as a pedestrian or as a driver, an experienced truck accident attorney can help you obtain money for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, and other damages.
Why You Need an Experienced Lawyer for Truck Injuries.
Perhaps you or a loved one was struck by a truck on a street corner because the height of the truck affected the driver's visual range or the truck was too wide for an intersection. Perhaps a truck hit your vehicle, and the driver claimed that the truck's steering or brakes failed. Perhaps a truck struck you, cut you off, or skidded or jackknifed into you, and has returned to another state. We can help makes sense of the legal aspects of your claim and provide rigorous representation.
Through no-fault laws, we can seek coverage for your medical expenses, ensure that your documents are filed, and aggressively pursue damages. We are experienced in federal court and the courts of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut; if the truck and driver have left New York State, we can handle your truck crash claim. If the truck's brakes, steering or other mechanisms failed, we can pursue the product liability aspect of your claim.
