We Accurately Assign Financial Liability After Your Truck Accident
When we represent clients injured in truck accidents, we make sure you can accurately assign liability to the right at-fault party. After a truck accident, identifying the financially liable party is not easy to determine on your own. Several parties could be at fault, including:
- The truck driver
- The truck driver’s employer
- The truck’s manufacturer
- The manufacturer of the truck’s parts and components
- The truck broker (aka the freight broker)
- The shipper

Recoverable Damages in Nassau County Truck Accident Cases
Our truck accident lawyer representing injured clients in Nassau County will help you gather evidence to prove the at-fault party is liable for the financial aftermath of the accident. At Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., our team will help you build a case for the following types of economic damages:
- Known and anticipated medical bills
- Known and anticipated income loss
- Property damage or destruction
In addition, New York law often allows you to compel the at-fault party to compensate you for your non-economic expenses and losses as well. We will help you request compensation for the following types of non-economic damages:
- Permanent disability
- Lasting disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress and emotional anguish
Our attorneys carefully review your accident expenses when we build your case. We take this measure to ensure you do not settle in or out of court without fighting for every recoverable damage you are entitled to receive due to the at-fault party’s negligence.
Damage Awards Our Team has Recovered for Previous Clients
“I hired Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. to represent me. The other driver had no assets but Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. was able to settle my case for the full limits of that driver’s automobile insurance policy. I received excellent service and the best possible outcome.” — Michael
We fight as hard to uncover available avenues for compensation for every client as we did for Michael. We have represented people injured by truck drivers, and we have represented truck drivers who themselves were injured. Some examples include:
- $950,000 for a truck driver who suffered a neck injury
- $650,000 for a woman who suffered neck and shoulder injuries in a collision with a truck making a left turn
Our goal is to ensure your damages are not undervalued so that we resolve your case with the best possible outcome.
New York’s Statute of Limitations Means Your Right to Sue Can Expire
Your right to seek recoverable damages from the at-fault party after a truck accident has a state-mandated time limit. Nassau County follows New York’s state laws to determine how much time you have to file a lawsuit. Accordingly:
- New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 determines the filing deadline for a personal injury lawsuit. However, If a government agency, a municipality, or a public authority are potentially at-fault, a significantly shorter statute of limitations and an even shorter claim notice period would likely apply. We will analyze this in our case review.
- Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1 determines the filing deadline for a wrongful death statute of limitations.
One way we help you fight for compensation is by ensuring your lawsuit is filed before the expiration of the statute of limitations—but this requires reaching out to us in time. In addition to complying with the timeline, early intervention means our team has time to canvass the accident scene for witnesses and videos from smartphones, dash cams, and surveillance cameras. The sooner you contact us, the better opportunity we have to effectively build your case.
