Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Manhattan Truck-Car Crash Attorney
Driving in the New York City metro area can be a harrowing experience, in part due to the constant mix of various vehicle types. Drivers of ordinary passenger cars and trucks have a far different perspective on the road than those operating huge semis, delivery trucks, construction equipment and other commercial vehicles.
When a car-vs.-truck accident occurs — and they occur all too often — the outcome can be devastating, especially for those in the passenger vehicle. If you or a family member has suffered serious injury, or your loved one was tragically killed, a caring and knowledgeable lawyer at our firm is prepared to seek answers and pursue all the compensation you deserve.
Decades of Effective Advocacy for Trucking Accident Victims
The sheer size and weight differences between tractor-trailer rigs, delivery trucks, garbage trucks and other commercial vehicles and standard autos makes any truck-car collision a serious event. We will investigate promptly and thoroughly to preserve evidence critical to our clients' cases, often retaining an experienced accident reconstruction expert to determine the actual cause. We will also dedicate all the time and resources necessary to show the full impact of serious injuries on their lives.
Leveraging decades of experience, we have extensive insight into common causes of car-truck accidents. Our capabilities extend to crashes involving negligence such as:
- Speeding and other over-aggressive driving by truckers focused on "making time" despite the risks they pose to others
- Fundamental driving errors such as the failure of a trucker to check mirrors before pulling out or changing lanes
- Truck driver fatigue due to too many hours on the road, distracted driving or operating a truck under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Trucking company negligence, including failures to check driving records during the truck driver hiring process or inadequate truck maintenance
