What You Should Know About Truck Accidents in NYC

New York, and the entire country, depends on commercial truckers. Though we owe them a great deal, the unfortunate reality is that truck drivers are under a lot of pressure and frequently drive into late hours of the night, which often leads to serious accidents. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan personal injury attorney to learn more about truck accidents in Manhattan and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the legal process ahead:

What are the most common causes of truck accidents?

Truck accidents can occur for a wide array of reasons. Typically, however, they are the result of negligence. When it comes to truck accidents, there are several parties who may be responsible. In some cases, another driver may cause a collision. In other cases, truck drivers can behave negligently and crash into another vehicle. At times, even negligent truck company employees, truck company owners, or truck manufacturers may bear some responsibility for an accident.

Do I need a Manhattan personal injury attorney if I am hurt in a truck accident?

If you were hurt in a truck accident due to no fault of your own, it is imperative that you hire an experienced Manhattan personal injury attorney. Of course, you should take certain steps before reaching out to an attorney, such as documenting the incident and receiving medical treatment. That being said, an attorney can help you collect additional evidence and present the evidence in a manner that can satisfy the burden of proof. As long as we can prove your claim, you should be entitled to financial compensation. Remember to file your claim within three years of the date the accident occurred, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations.

What damages can I recover after a truck accident?

If you win your personal injury claim, you should recover compensation to help you deal with any monetary or non-monetary damages you’ve sustained because of your accident. These can include lost wages, the cost of medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and more. If you need our help, simply pick up the phone and give us a call today. We are on your side.
