Were You Injured in a Truck Accident?

Our legal representation is vital to all who have been impacted by negligence across the Island, and that has never been more true for those who have been hurt or lost their loved one in commercial vehicle crashes here.

The Island extends from New York Harbor 118 miles eastward into the North Atlantic Ocean, with a north-south width of 23 miles. With its dense population and extensive network of highways and roads, significant traffic congestion, and a mix of passenger vehicles and large commercial trucks, the likelihood of accidents on any part of the Island increases significantly.

In addition, key highways such as the Long Island Expressway (I-495), Sunrise Highway, and Northern State Parkway are significant routes for transporting goods, making the high volume of truck traffic on these busy roads lead to more frequent accidents. This is why we are here.

Our commitment to the Long Island communities, including those in Kings, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties, allows our truck accident attorneys to understand the local dynamics and are well-equipped to serve the diverse needs of all who call the Island home.

If you have been injured in a truck accident caused by negligence, contact our skilled Long Island commercial vehicle accident attorneys today to discuss your case and how the incident has impacted your life.

Long Island has a robust economy with numerous businesses, warehouses, and distribution centers. This economic activity necessitates a continuous flow of commercial trucks delivering goods, which increases the potential for accidents.

In addition, the mix of urban and suburban areas on Long Island means that different types of trucks often navigate through densely populated regions with narrow streets and frequent stops, increasing the risk of collisions with smaller vehicles.

We are here to help our injury victims understand who can be held liable for their collisions, injuries, and complete damages so they can make informed decisions about the direction of their cases.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Commercial Truck Accidents and Injuries on Long Island, New York?

Determining liability for a commercial vehicle accident is challenging due to the numerous parties that may be involved and the complex nature of the evidence required. Factors such as driver behavior, vehicle maintenance, cargo loading practices, and even road conditions must be investigated thoroughly. This is why we are here.

With over 25 years of experience representing truck accident victims throughout Long Island, our lawyers focus on pursuing tangible results for our clients by evaluating every aspect of commercial vehicle collisions so no detail is left to chance and all parties are held accountable for their negligent actions or inaction that caused our clients’ damages.

That includes the following parties that can potentially be held liable:

  • Truck Driver

If the truck driver’s negligence caused the accident, such as distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence, the driver can be held liable for the resulting injuries and damages.

  • Trucking Company

The company that employs the driver may be held liable if it fails to properly train or supervise the driver, enforces unrealistic schedules that lead to driver fatigue, or neglects vehicle maintenance.

  • Vehicle Manufacturer

If a defect in the truck or its components, including brakes, tires, or other parts, contributed to the accident, the vehicle’s manufacturer or the defective part may be liable under product liability laws.

  • Maintenance Providers

Companies or individuals responsible for the maintenance and repair of the truck can be held liable if negligent maintenance leads to mechanical failure or other issues that caused the accident.

  • Cargo Loaders

If the accident was caused by improperly loaded or secured cargo, the individuals or companies responsible for loading the truck could be held liable.

  • Other Drivers

In some cases, other drivers on the road may have contributed to the accident through negligent or reckless driving. Depending on their involvement, they can be held partially or fully liable.

  • Third-Party Contractors

If any third-party contractors were involved in the operation, maintenance, or logistics related to the commercial truck and their actions contributed to the accident, they might also be held liable.

Each party, from the truck driver and their employer to maintenance providers and manufacturers, could share responsibility, making it essential to meticulously examine driver logs, maintenance records, black box data, and accident reports.

This multifaceted investigation demands experience in legal and technical aspects, often requiring the coordination of various experts to establish liability accurately. That is what we do. Contact our skilled truck accident and injury attorneys on Long Island today to help navigate the complexities of your case and ensure that all liable parties are held accountable.
