Truck Accident Lawyers Serving New York City & Beyond

Semi-Truck, Big Rig, Delivery Truck & Other Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Commercial vehicles, from mid-sized delivery trucks to enormous 18-wheelers, present quite a formidable presence on New York’s roadways. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles makes nearly any collision a serious one, particularly if a motorcyclist, cyclist, or pedestrian is involved. A typical sedan or even an SUV may be literally crushed by a big rig or have its roof sheared off by a tractor-trailer.

If you have been seriously injured in a collision with a commercial truck, do not wait to talk to a NYC truck accident attorney at Silbowitz, Garafola, Silbowitz, Schatz & Frederick, L.L.P. The trucking company’s insurance company is already working to counteract your claim. Make sure you have a competent legal professional to protect your interests and your right to recover complete compensation.

For more information about what to do after a truck accident, call (646) 681-7055. We can talk to you about your unique case and how we can help. This consultation is free and confidential!

No-Fault Insurance vs. Personal Injury Lawsuits for NYC Truck Accidents

New York implements a no-fault policy when it comes to traffic accidents, and this includes truck accidents. This essentially means that your own insurance policy will cover any injuries you sustain in a truck accident, regardless of fault. The problem with this is that no-fault insurance rarely covers the full losses caused by a truck accident, and even your own insurance provider may try to undervalue your claim.

If you are seriously injured, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party to seek additional compensation. Generally speaking, this means you must have experienced an injury that has resulted in a disability or disfigurement of some kind. With truck accidents, such catastrophic injuries are very likely.

Our New York City truck accident lawyers have extensive experience with personal injury cases against:

  • Truck operators
  • Truck owners or lessees
  • Trucking companies
  • Loading companies
  • Truck manufacturers
  • Other motorists

Your trucking accident claim may be complex, but it is not hopeless. Call (646) 681-7055 today to see how we can help you seek justice.
