New York Truck Accident Lawyer

Dependable Counsel Helping You Recover Maximum Compensation

Truck accidents can be terrifying and potentially fatal. Whether they’re driving at high speeds on the interstate or maneuvering dangerously on side streets, trucks pose a significant threat to other vehicles on the road due to their size. Unfortunately, all it can take is just one inexperienced, tired, or reckless truck driver and your life could be changed forever. If you have suffered catastrophic injuries or lost a loved one in a truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses.

The personal injury attorneys at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP know how devastating the effects of a truck accident can be. With a deep understanding of the nuances involved in truck wrecks, and a focus on raising the level of safety for New Yorkers, we have obtained millions in compensation for truck accident victims and their families.

Our Family Helping Your Family Get Through Challenging Times

A truck accident can take a considerable toll on you physically, financially, and emotionally. Often, the consequences are far more severe than a “fender bender” between two motorists. Since trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, drivers of cars or SUVs, passengers, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are involved in truck accidents may face a higher risk of fatality or permanent disability than they would in an accident with a passenger car.

Truck accidents can arise for a number of reasons, including:

  • Driver negligence
  • Failure to follow traffic rules
  • Inexperienced driving
  • Lack of training
  • Inadequate maintenance
  • Driving under the influence
  • Unsecured cargo
  • Distracted driving

Critically, accidents involving trucks and passenger vehicles can be much more complicated than a typical car crash. The facts and circumstances surrounding the accident must be thoroughly investigated, and the correct party must be named in the lawsuit. For instance, a corporation might be the owner of the truck. In other cases, the City of New York or New York State might be responsible. The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP will work diligently to ensure the negligent party is held accountable.

New York Truck Accident Lawyers You Can Rely On

Whether your case involves an 18-wheeler, a delivery truck, dump truck, flatbed truck, or any other type of commercial or municipal truck, it’s imperative that you retain a personal injury attorney with extensive experience handling these types of accidents.

A truck accident victim may be eligible to recover for their economic losses in connection with the accident — and for the physical pain and mental anguish they have suffered due to their injuries. At The Edelsteins, Faebenburg & Brown, LLP we know that once the scars have healed, you are likely still enduring emotional distress and trying to overcome significant financial strain. We will work indefatigably to make sure you receive full and fair compensation for the costs of your medical treatment, your lost wages, and the physical and emotional pain and suffering you have endured.

In cases where a truck accident results in fatality, our lawyers will zealously advocate for the surviving family members to help ensure they are justly compensated for their loss. While no amount of money can relieve the grief and sorrow of losing a loved one, it may bring some closure to know that a negligent party is held responsible for their actions.

The truck accident lawyers at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP provide reliable counsel you can depend on when you’re going through one of your toughest times. While you focus on recovering from your injuries, you can rest assured that you have a dedicated lawyer on your side who will strive to ensure you obtain justice for the impact your injury has had on your life.
