Identifying and Proving Who Is at Fault / Liable for Your Truck Accident Injuries
Proof of fault and liability serves as the cornerstone for your truck accident case. Your demand for compensation requires that these elements are well-documented, and it is part of our mission to do so. To secure financial compensation in a commercial truck accident, our personal injury attorneys need to show what happened and how a negligent truck driver or another party caused the crash.
To show negligence occurred, we need evidence to demonstrate:
Duty of Care: A number of parties can cause a truck accident. We will identify the party or parties who had a duty of care to keep you from harm. This could include a number of various parties, from the truck driver to the carrier or even the parts or truck manufacturer.
Causation and Fault: We will use evidence to show that this party or these parties failed to protect you from harm and that this failure caused the accident that resulted in your injuries.
Damages and Liability: Finally, we will illustrate how you sustained physical and/or emotional injuries, as well as financial damages.

Determining the Damages and Amounts We Will Work to Recover

We know no amount of money will ever make up for losing your loved one, but we can help you pay their medical costs, cover their lost income, and ease other financial stresses.

We are fully dedicated to winning the best possible outcome for you and in doing so, we hope we will win some measure of justice for your departed loved one.
Insurance Claim or Personal Injury Lawsuit—We Will See You Through to the End
Once we have determined your damages, we will begin the process of negotiating with the liable party’s insurer. If the insurer refuses to offer an appropriate amount or denies your claim, depending upon the unique circumstances of your case, we will file a lawsuit in a civil court on your behalf.
Your Time for Taking Legal Action on Your Truck Accident is Limited
You should be aware that the state of New York imposes a statute of limitations for personal injury cases. This means you have a set amount of time from the date of your accident to file a case against the at-fault and liable party. Additionally, there are other case-related deadlines associated with a truck accident case.
A Long Island truck accident lawyer will manage your case, so you need not worry about deadlines and other administrative details. The sooner you begin the process, the greater our opportunity to build the strongest case possible for you. The availability of witnesses for statements and physical evidence, such as video surveillance, for example, can change over time. Given these time considerations, we urge you to call us as soon as possible to protect your rights.
