- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord damage
- Neck injury
- Severe burns
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding
- Crushed limbs or organs
- Permanent disability
As you can see these are debilitating, life-altering injuries that will significantly affect your ability to enjoy life to the fullest.

An experienced New York truck accident lawyer can look into your accident, and help you take the necessary steps to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and financial hardship.
In order to win a truck accident lawsuit, you must prove that the accident was a result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. The majority of truck accidents in New York and Long Island are caused by negligent truck drivers who fail to adhere to traffic signs and signals, or fail to follow traffic laws by driving irresponsibly, such truck drivers who drive drunk or fall asleep at the wheel.

Truck companies and manufacturers have a legal responsibility to ensure that all trucks are working properly and equipped with the right safety equipment. If they fail to do so they can be held liable in the event of an accident.
