Injured In A Truck Accident? Our New York Lawyers Are Ready To Help.
Driver negligence is dangerous to everyone on the road, and carelessness behind the wheel of a large truck, 18-wheeler or commercial vehicle carries an even greater risk of injury.
Our truck accident attorneys at Greenberg Law P.C. have recovered many successful settlements and verdicts on behalf of people injured in such accidents.
When Injuries Are Severe
Truck accidents often result in more damage, more significant injuries and more expensive medical bills. When we represent people injured in truck accidents, our clients are often drivers and passengers in cars involved in collisions with large commercial vehicles.
Truck accident victims may suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations and other devastating bodily harm. Even a so-called minor truck versus car accident often puts someone in the hospital for a long time, followed by a long convalescence and rehabilitation.
Factors Contributing To Truck Accidents
The size, weight and momentum of a commercial truck often make truck accidents more serious than other traffic accidents. When large trucks travel down a highway or in city traffic, the drivers may be unable to stop fast enough to avoid a crash. Furthermore, trucks sometimes roll or jackknife because of road conditions, leading to crashes with approaching vehicles.
Negligence contributing to truck accidents may include more than driving errors. Failure to comply with federal trucking regulations regarding weight, inspection and load balancing can lead to catastrophic wrecks involving cars, motorcycles and other trucks.
Legal Opportunities And Challenges
Many personal injury attorneys and other people may assume that collecting compensation from a trucking company will be straightforward. However, even when a trucker was at fault, insurance complexities can make it difficult to get to the funds that an injured person or surviving family members need and deserve. Trucking companies’ insurers often send lawyers to the scene of a crash right away and get a head start on gathering evidence.
Trucks can have multiple owners, so it is necessary to investigate and identify who was responsible for the accident. We will work diligently to figure out who to sue, when to file suit and how to protect you and your claim from defense efforts by the responsible parties.
If you or a family member suffered injuries in a truck accident, you should have your own legal team at work for you to even the playing field. Because truck accidents can cause greater damage, these cases require skillful attorneys with the experience to battle top-notch adjusters hired by insurance companies to avoid massive million-dollar payouts.
