East Meadow Truck Accident Lawyer
If you or a loved one is dealing with injuries from an East Meadow truck accident, the legal team at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will fight to collect the compensation that you deserve.
We Handle All Types of East Meadow Truck Accident Cases
Truck injuries are often severe and life-changing. Your injury may require extensive medical care and you may have to take time off work to recover. In the meantime, your household bills and other expenses are likely quickly adding up. An East Meadow truck accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for these costs.
We aggressively prosecute all types of truck accidents. These are some of the most common accident causes we have successfully recovered against on behalf of our clients:
- Fatigued driving
- Driving under the influence
- Ignoring local road or speed laws
- Aggressive driving/road rage
- Lack of truck driver training
- Lack of truck maintenance
- Ignoring weight restrictions
Certain commercial truck drivers are subject to federal safety regulations set by the U.S. Department of Transportation. These rules, such as limiting the amount of time that drivers can drive between breaks, are meant to increase the safety for the driver, as well as the safety of other motorists, passengers, and others, such as roadside construction workers, for example, or other pedestrians, who could conceivably be harmed by negligent operation of a truck.
Failing to follow these regulations can make the truck driver, or others in the chain of truck ownership, maintenance or operation, liable. The injury lawyers at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will get to the bottom of what caused your truck accident case.
Trust Your Truck Accident Case to the Team at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P.
We will fight for the justice you deserve. If a truck driver’s negligent actions caused your injury, it is only right that they be held liable for the harm that you have had to endure. We are here for you every step of the way, always fighting to get you the compensation that you deserve. We will:
Provide Regular Updates on Your Case
Our team will keep you updated on significant developments in your legal case. It is our intention to keep you well informed. We hope that knowing your case is being vigorously prosecuted will help you attain, to the greatest degree possible, peace of mind that will permit you to focus on your medical treatment and recovery.
Our team will immediately begin investigating your case to identify the at-fault party(s). In a truck accident case, there are numerous parties that may be at fault:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Repair mechanic
- Truck manufacturer
- Trailer owner
- Truck broker
- Municipality (If road design or defect was a contributing factor)
By collecting the police report, witness statements, driver logs, training manuals, inspection reports, photographs or videos from the scene of the accident, and maintenance reports, we will uncover the details of the accident.
We may also call on expert witnesses to determine more in-depth details. Just a few of the expert witnesses that we work with on a regular basis include economists, life care planners, medical experts, and vocational rehabilitation specialists. When indicated, we utilize the services of accident reconstruction experts as well.
Manage Communication on Your Behalf
The aftermath of a truck accident and the disruption, if not devastation, to the life of the injured person and his or her family, can be overwhelming. Between medical treatment visits and dealing with work disability, for example, you should not also have to deal with legal communications. Our East Meadow truck accident lawyers will manage all aspects of your case including communications with insurance companies, the other legal team, and any expert witnesses that we call on to build your case.
Gather Important Evidence
We gather evidence to build your case. By collecting important information like medical records, witness statements, and income statements, we establish that:
- The at-fault driver owed you a duty of care
- The at fault-driver breached that duty of care in some way (either through negligence or intentional harm)
- The driver’s negligence caused your accident
- You suffered damages from the accident
Determine the Value of Your Case
Truck accident injuries can result in massive expense, made all the more difficult to deal with if these injuries require you to take time off work to recover. There are many costs to consider, both economic and non-economic, when determining the value of your East Meadow truck accident case.
We will work to recover the following costs in your case:
- Medical treatment (current and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages and work benefits
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished earning capacity
- Diminished life enjoyment
