New York City Truck Accident Lawyer

Helping Truck Accident Victims in New York

At The Pryor Law Firm, we have the experience and legal ability necessary to meet the challenges of proving personal injury or wrongful death claims against corporate defendants in accident cases involving trucks, tractor-trailers, and other commercial vehicles. We help clients in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Nassau County.

If you have been injured by a truck or any commercial vehicle, you will most likely have up to $1 million or more in available insurance coverage for your injuries as opposed to many situations where someone is seriously injured by a personal automobile which carries only $25,000 in insurance (New York’s minimum) making it difficult for the person to recover the full amount of their damages, even when the value of the case far exceeds $25,000.00.

As a result, if you have been injured by a truck or other commercial vehicle with a substantial insurance policy, you want to make sure that you retain an attorney who knows how to stand up to powerful corporate defendants and their legal teams and force them to pay you the full amount of your damages by developing your case properly and by demonstrating your entitlement to such an award.

Types of Truck Accident Claims We Handle in NYC

Our law firm knows how to investigate and present proof of both liability and damages in commercial vehicle cases of all kinds, ranging from collisions with contractor pick-up trucks or delivery vans to accidents involving 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, tankers, or heavy construction vehicles. Our firm also handles bus accident cases and MTA accidents.

We put together the right team of experts to handle all types of injury or wrongful death claims involving:

  • Tractor trailers or 18-wheelers
  • Delivery trucks
  • Repair, maintenance or utility vans
  • Light and heavy construction vehicles
  • Moving vans of all sizes
  • Mobile equipment trucks such as cranes, bucket lifts, or cement mixers
  • Semi-trucks, whether locally owned or traveling through New York
  • Limousines, airport shuttles, or hotel courtesy vans
  • Buses
  • Negligence in driver hiring, training, or supervision
  • Negligent maintenance, inspection, or repair of vehicles or equipment
  • Violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
  • Driver fatigue or excessive hours on the road
  • Sideswipe accidents

In New York truck accident litigation, what appears to be a generous settlement offer will often fall short of the amount you actually need to cover a long period of disability, extensive medical treatment, multiple surgeries and ongoing in-home assistance, rehabilitative therapy, or adaptive technology.

Common Injuries in Truck Accidents

Truck accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries because of these vehicles' sheer size and weight. The consequences can be life-altering, impacting victims physically, emotionally, and financially. Some common injuries connected with truck accidents include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): The force of a truck collision can cause head injuries, leading to traumatic brain injuries with long-term consequences.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: The impact of a truck crash may result in spinal cord injuries, affecting mobility and causing paralysis.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: The force exerted during a collision can cause severe fractures and broken bones, requiring extensive medical intervention.
  • Internal Injuries: Truck accidents can often lead to internal injuries, necessitating immediate medical attention.
  • Emotional Distress: Beyond physical injuries, victims often experience emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

What is the Statute of Limitations for Truck Accident Claims in New York?

Understanding the statute of limitations is vital when pursuing a truck accident claim in New York. The statute of limitations helps set a time limit within which legal action must be initiated. In general, truck accident victims have three years from the accident date to file a personal injury claim. This includes claims for injuries sustained in the accident.

It is crucial to act promptly and consult with our qualified attorney to ensure compliance with the statute of limitations. Failure to file within the specified timeframe could lead to the denial of your right to seek compensation. We understand the urgency of these matters and work diligently to build robust cases that stand up to legal scrutiny.
