New York Truck Accident Lawyers
Trial-Tested Attorneys Who Care
Any accident with a large truck has the potential to cause a significant amount of property damage, catastrophic injuries, and even death. These vehicles can weigh up to 80,000 pounds or more when fully loaded, and they are cumbersome and difficult to maneuver. A single mistake or act of carelessness could spell disaster for anyone in the vicinity.
Have you been injured in an accident with a commercial truck? Trial-tested and compassionate, our New York truck accident lawyers are here to help you through this difficult time by protecting your rights and interests. We handle personal injury and wrongful death cases for clients across the state and country who have suffered harm in collisions with big rigs, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, delivery trucks, dump trucks, tankers, and other large commercial vehicles.

Truck Accident Causes & Contributing Factors
Unlike other types of traffic accidents, collisions involving trucks have specific causes that are only associated with these large, cargo-bearing vehicles. Trucks, their operators, and trucking companies are also subject to state and federal trucking regulations, adding another level of liability if they fail to adhere to these and this causes an accident.
Our team represents clients across New York in all types of truck accident cases, involving any cause or contributing factor, including:
- Overloaded trucks
- Improperly secured or balanced truck cargo
- Hours-of-service violations
- Fatigued truck operators
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Driving under the influence of illegal or prescription drugs
- Unsafe lane changes or merges
- Aggressive driving
- Failure to check blind spots
- Speeding or driving too fast for road/weather conditions
- Defective or poorly maintained truck parts
If you’ve shared the road with a large truck, you may have witnessed behavior that placed you in fear of your safety. If you’ve been involved in an accident with a truck, now is the time to discover whether the trucker or trucking company is to blame. Our attorneys can investigate to determine cause and help you pursue financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and even emotional trauma or other losses or injuries.
