New York Truck Accident Attorneys - Call Us and Level the Playing Field

With more than half a dozen Interstates connecting Manhattan, the Bronx, Westchester, Rockland County, Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens County and Staten Island, commercial semi-trucks barrel through every part of the region every day. When a 50-foot long tractor-trailer has a full load of cargo, it can weigh over 80,000 pounds, so when big rigs are involved in car accidents or motorcycle accidents, occupants of the smaller vehicle are always at more risk for catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury. After a serious accident, it's crucial to discuss your rights with an experienced New York truck accident lawyer. Call the Law Offices of Pasternack Tilker Ziegler Walsh Stanton & Romano, LLP toll-free at (800) 692-3717 today.

A New York Big Rig Wreck Can Cause Highway Deaths and Catastrophic Injuries

Because overworked, fatigued truckers fall asleep at the wheel of their 18-wheelers, they can lose control of their rig and jackknife, swerve or roll over on NY highways. Rear-end crashes, head-ons and pile-ups can result, with severe crash injuries and sometimes truck accident fatalities as well.

If you were hit by a sleepy trucker on any of the region's Interstates-I-495, 295, 895, 695, 87, 78 or 95-discuss your legal options with a tough-minded trucking accident attorney in New York. Your accident case is complicated from the outset. It will be your word against not only the trucker, but the trucking company, its liability insurance adjusters and the truck company lawyers.

When dealing with insurance companies, they will pressure you to agree to a "low-ball" settlement, even if it is obvious that the accident was the trucker's fault. We're not intimidated by truck company representatives and have 80 years of aggressive personal injury lawsuit successes behind us. Commercial truck companies know that we prepare every case meticulously and that we'll go to court if that's what it takes to get the settlement our clients deserve.

If you were hit by a negligent truck driver, we're the tough, seasoned New York personal injury legal team you want on your side. In fighting for a client's rights, we take care of everything, from legal paperwork, witness interviews, photographing the truck crash site and preserving accident evidence to arranging medical treatment, car repair or replacement, and finding the client a loaner if needed.
