Types of Trucks on the Roads in Levittown and Greater NYC
Large commercial trucks play an important role in the distribution of consumer goods, construction, and numerous other industries. There are many types of trucks on the roads today, including:
- Dump trucks
- Garbage trucks
- Cement mixers
- Construction trucks
- Flatbed trucks
- Oil trucks
- Refrigerator trucks
- Heavy haulers
- Dangerous materials haulers
When the drivers of these large vehicles make careless or reckless mistakes, accidents happen and people suffer injuries. The drivers and passengers in nearby cars often suffer significant injuries as a result. These accidents occur because:
- The truck driver or trucking company fails to follow a local, state, or federal transportation law.
- The truck driver or trucking company is not following industry safety standards.
- The truck driver breaks a traffic law.
- There is another problem with the truck related to a part, maintenance, or repairs.
In any of these situations, a Levittown truck accident lawyer from Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. will work tirelessly to determine what happened and identify the liable party or parties. We pursue payouts and hold trucking companies and other liable parties accountable for the injuries and losses our clients endure.

Time Limits on Filing a Truck Accident Case in NYC
Under Section 214 of the Civil Practice Law & Rules, New York has a deadline on how long accident victims have to file a truck accident lawsuit. How long you have is based on the facts of your case and other factors. We will explain the time limit in your case and protect your right to file a lawsuit. In addition to the statute of limitations, there are other time-limitations involved in accident injury claims and lawsuits. We will relieve you of the stress of deadlines and make sure all actions are taken in a proper and timely manner. This will allow you to focus on your medical treatment, healing from your injuries and rebuilding your life
It is also important to act quickly because commercial vehicle accident cases, and large truck cases, in particular, have evidence that is not available in most car accidents. Transportation laws require trucking companies to keep certain records, and these could support your claim. We need to take action to protect this evidence and gain access to it. This includes:
- Data from the truck’s onboard computer
- Digital and analog driver logs
- Inspection reports for the truck
- Dashcam video of the accident, if available
- Truck maintenance records
- Drug and alcohol test results following the accident
Taking action quickly will protect this evidence from getting lost or destroyed. Most of it is in the possession of the potentially liable party.
Simply stated, the sooner you contact us, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible
