New York Truck Accident Attorneys Help Injured Motorists Get Compensated for Injuries Sustained in NYC Commercial Vehicle Collisions

Cars, small trucks, and most other vehicles are at a huge disadvantage in an accident involving a semi-truck on roads in the Bronx and elsewhere in NY. The sheer size and weight of a loaded semi means that smaller vehicles (and the people in them) are at serious risk of grave injury or death. The injuries are often devastating and can include spinal cord injuries and paralysis, burns, significant internal injuries, multiple fractures, and brain or head injury. The injured parties may experience significant depression and other mental deficits because of the life-changing injuries they suffered.

The severity of the situation makes it crucial for Bronx truck accident victims to find a knowledgeable and sympathetic personal injury lawyer who can advise you about your legal rights. At Proner & Proner, lead attorney Mitchell Proner has a record of accomplishment that includes securing large verdicts and settlements for victims of trucking accidents. To find out whether Attorney Proner can help you, call his law office or fill out the online contact form to schedule a free consultation to discuss your options.

Causes of Truck Accidents in New York

Our law firm has obtained compensation for NY truck accident victims injured by:

  • A truck encountering a road hazard and not correcting quickly enough.
  • A driver traveling too fast for bad weather or road conditions.
  • A truck with defective equipment and parts.
  • Poor truck maintenance.
  • Truck drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Inadequate driver training.
  • Tired or fatigued truck drivers.

In any of these instances, proving negligence can be challenging. The at-fault party could be the driver, the trucking company, the truck manufacturer, the manufacturer of truck equipment (such as tires, brakes, and other components), the jurisdiction responsible for maintaining the road, or a combination of those listed. Determining “fault” in trucking accidents is a challenge that can only be tackled by an experienced injury lawyer.

Proving Fault in NY Trucking Accident Cases

In order to be eligible for compensation in a trucking accident case, you must be able to prove that the accident occurred as the result of another party’s negligence. Similar to car accident cases and motorcycle accident cases, several parties can be held liable for a trucking accident, including the truck driver, the manufacturer of the truck (or a part of the truck), or the party responsible for maintaining safe road conditions. However, proving who was at fault, and to what degree, can be extremely difficult, given the complexity of personal injury and liability laws and the perseverance of the defense in New York truck accident cases. Therefore, it is best to enlist the assistance of skilled and practiced NYC personal injury attorneys to do so.
