When large semi-trucks collide with smaller passenger vehicles, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic. When these devastating truck accidents are caused by the negligence of truck drivers or trucking companies, they must be held fully accountable for the injuries they have caused.

In New York, every vehicle is required to carry no-fault insurance. This means that your insurance company is responsible, up to a certain financial limit, for your medical expenses, lost wages and other incidental expenses following an accident. However, in order to ensure that you receive the full benefit of your no-fault insurance you must file a no-fault application within 30 days of the accident. We will help you with this important step.
In serious truck accidents, the no-fault insurance coverage is often exhausted well before medical treatments are complete or an injured person can return to work. In such cases, it is important to work with a skilled injury lawyer who can pursue all additional sources of compensation for your injuries. As seasoned personal injury and wrongful death attorneys, we are able to fully evaluate every dimension of potential liability and every available benefit.
A serious truck accident may be caused by driver error, a mechanic’s oversight, faulty equipment, a failure to abide by state or federal regulations, highway defects — or any number of other factors. We will fully investigate all of these elements in order to determine who is truly responsible for the truck accident, and in turn, who should be held accountable for any resulting injuries.
Following the investigation, we will aggressively pursue full and fair compensation for the harm you have suffered. Whether at the negotiating table or in the courtroom, we have the experience needed to get results.
