NYC Trucking Accident Lawyers
Every kind of motor vehicle accident is serious and has the potential to result in injury. Due to their size and weight, however, accidents involving 18-wheelers and semi trucks have the potential to cause much more severe injuries and other damage to drivers and passengers. For people in smaller vehicles, who have less protection, truck accidents can result in spinal cord injuries, head injuries and death in the worst cases.
At the law firm of Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, McCartney & Giuffra LLP, our experienced lawyers offer help and representation to people who have been injured in New York truck accidents, as well as to those who have had loved ones killed in these types of accidents. We can guide you through the aftermath of the accident and make it a priority to pursue the compensation that you need for medical bills and other expenses.
New York Truck Accident Attorneys
While many truck drivers are safe, some drivers and trucking companies disregard the rules of the road and the safety of other drivers in the interests of profits. Common causes of semi truck accidents may include:
- Driver fatigue
- Aggressive driving behavior
- Carelessness and negligence behind the wheel
- Inadequate training
- Unrealistic schedules
- Improper vehicle and equipment maintenance
- Improper loading
In New York, claims for medical injuries require meeting certain thresholds, as defined by New York State's No-Fault Law. Our firm has the experience in evaluating claims based on the thresholds and presenting your claim in the strongest light possible.
