Truck accidents are often the most devastating, frequently resulting in serious physical injury and loss of life.
Our New York and Westchester County truck accident lawyers have over 25 years experience representing our clients in commercial truck crashes, including accidents involving tractor trailers, garbage trucks, school buses, public buses, dump trucks, 18-wheelers, moving trucks and construction vans.
Fortunately, US DOT Regulations protect an accident victim in many ways, by requiring trucking companies to possess significant insurance policies (well above those required in car accident cases) and by requiring trucking companies to maintain personal and performance records of the truck drivers involved in crashes, detailing other truck accidents they have been involved in, the driver’s drug and alcohol histories, traffic tickets which they have received previously and their general record of safety or lack thereof.
Accordingly, if you or a loved one has been involved in truck crash in New York or Connecticut, the experienced lawyers in our offices in will work tirelessly to insure that you receive the justice you deserve, including repayment for past and future pay checks, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, past and future medical bills and punitive damages, if warranted.
