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 may add up. An East Meadow truck accident lawyer from our firm will recover compensation for you.
We aggressively pursue all types of truck accident cases. These are some of the most common types of cases we have successfully settled or litigated 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
- Disregarding overpass height restrictions
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 drivers can drive between breaks, are meant to improve safety for the driver, other motorists, passengers, roadside construction workers, other pedestrians, and other people who could conceivably be harmed by negligent truck driving.
Failing to follow the safety regulations can make the truck driver, or others in the chain of truck ownership, maintenance, or operation, liable. The injury lawyers at our firm will get to the bottom of what caused your truck accident case.

Trust Your Truck Accident Case to Our Team
We will fight for the justice you deserve. If a truck driver’s negligent actions caused your injury, it is only right that they are held liable for the harm done to you. We are here for you every step of the way, always fighting to get you the compensation 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 maintain some peace of mind so you can focus on your medical treatment and recovery.
Our team will immediately begin investigating your case to identify the at-fault party or parties. In a truck accident case, numerous parties may be at fault, such as a:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company
- Repair mechanic
- Truck manufacturer
- Trailer owner
- Truck broker
- Municipality (If road design or a 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 your accident.
We might also call on expert witnesses to determine more in-depth details. Just a few of the expert witnesses we work with regularly include economists, life care planners, medical experts, and vocational rehabilitation specialists. When necessary, we utilize the services of accident reconstruction experts as well.
Manage Communication for You
The aftermath of a truck accident and the effects on the life of the injured person and their family can be overwhelming. Between medical treatment visits and dealing with work disability, for example, an injured person should not have to deal with legal communications. One of our East Meadow truck accident lawyers will manage all of the aspects of your case, including communications with insurance companies, the other legal team, and any expert witnesses we call on.
Gather Important Evidence
We gather evidence to build your case. By collecting important information like medical records, witness statements, and income statements, we will establish that:
- The at-fault driver owed you a duty of care
- The at-fault driver breached that duty of care in some way
- The driver’s negligence caused your accident
- You suffered compensable damages from the accident
Determine the Value of Your Case
Truck accident injuries can result in massive expenses that can be especially difficult to handle 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 types of damages in your case:
- Medical treatment costs (current and future)
- Property damage
- Lost wages and work benefits
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished earning capacity
- Diminished life enjoyment
There are various methods our lawyers use to attribute monetary values to non-financial damages, like pain and suffering. You may have trouble valuating such damages on your own, so let your lawyer valuate them for you. After completing the analysis and evaluation process, your lawyer will make the other party’s insurance provider understand, in a compelling manner, why your damages are valued as they are.

Entrust Your Wrongful Death Case to Us
If you lost your loved one in a truck accident, we’re very sorry for your loss. No one should have to experience the needless loss of a loved one and the support, love, and companionship the loved one provided. To help you recover financially from your loss, a lawyer from our firm will file a wrongful death claim to recover the compensation you need and the justice your departed loved one deserves.
Your Lawyer Will Negotiate and Argue Your Case on Your Behalf
Negotiating a settlement with an insurance company is never simple. The insurer may diminish a claimant’s damages, argue that the claimant was at fault, or try another tactic to avoid having to make a payout. Your attorney will be prepared for these tactics and be able to pressure the insurer into making a good settlement offer, so even though negotiations will be complicated, your attorney will be well-equipped to handle them.
Sometimes, even though a case has merit and warrants a significant settlement offer, insurers aren’t willing to negotiate in good faith. In this case, your attorney won’t hesitate to take the insurer to court and argue your case there. We won’t tolerate an uncompromising insurer.
Our attorneys are perfectly capable of litigating or settling a case, so you’ll be in good hands with a member of our legal team.
