Truck/Tractor Rollover Accidents

Truck Accident Lawyers in NYC

The New York City truck accident attorneys of Proner & Proner have observed an alarming trend in recent years. More and more people are opting to represent themselves in court in an effort to save money. In New Hampshire, for instance, roughly 85 percent of all civil cases filed in district court in 2004 featured either the plaintiff or the defendant representing himself or herself. It has further been shown that people who opt to pursue litigation without professional legal assistance are far less likely to secure the compensation to which they are entitled.

Individuals who have been injured in a rollover accident involving a large truck or tractor trailer should not go it alone in court. Those that do often lose more money than they had intended to save. Even more tragic is that these accident victims, who did nothing wrong, may have mounting medical costs that end up draining their savings accounts. This can plunge them into financial disarray and leave children without college funds or safety nets.

The surest way for truck accident victims to ensure the preservation of their rights is to hire professional trucking accident attorneys right from the start.

The Importance of Hiring the Right NYC Trucking Accident Lawyer

There are many intricacies to personal injury litigation, especially when it comes to a rollover accident involving a commercial truck. For example, a layman may not know that an automotive defect could have been the cause of the rollover. In such cases, the manufacturer of the defective part can be held legally accountable. Likewise, many people do not realize that they can file a personal injury lawsuit even if they were partially responsible for the accident, as long as their responsibility was less than 50 percent.

People who choose to represent themselves in court may not have access to a qualified accident reconstructionist who can evaluate the accident scene and cement indisputable facts that help strengthen the case.

The trucking accident attorneys of Proner & Proner, serving Manhattan and all of New York, can help you avoid the pitfalls of self-representation and fight to ensure that you receive every penny of compensation you are due.

Why Self-Representation Isn’t the Best Choice in NY Rollover Accidents

Truly, only trucking accident attorneys who have been in the trenches know how to take on the legal team for the defense, which will be fighting to make sure that you don’t receive due compensation. Rollover accident victims who have been catastrophically injured cannot afford to lose in court. A loss could hamper their ability to get adequate health care and jeopardize their financial futures.

In the end, it is best to speak with an attorney regarding your case and get an idea of what you may be up against in court, especially if you are fighting against an insurance company. The trucking accident attorneys of the New York law firm of Proner & Proner urge you to visit their Manhattan office.
