We will fight to recover the maximum dollar amount of compensation you deserve.
The personal injury lawyers at Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. handle all types of New York truck accident cases, including those caused by:
Most common types of truck accidents in New York:

- Excessive speed

We will fight to hold them legally and financially responsible for the harm they have caused.
