New York Personal Injury Attorney Representing Truck Accident Victims
If you have been injured in an accident involving a commercial vehicle or truck in New York, you are strongly urged to contact an experienced lawyer promptly. Valuable evidence can be collected from the scene of an accident, such as:
- Photos of the scene of the truck accident
- Eyewitness reports while people who saw or experienced the accident still remember it clearly
You or your family member might have suffered a catastrophic injury that will result in lifelong disabilities: traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation or burn injuries. You may have suffered from a less serious injury that you will eventually recover from, but which may keep you from working for a long time:
- Neck injury
- Back injury
From a legal standpoint, a commercial trucking accident may involve complex issues having to do with insurance: stacking, subrogation or self-insurance by a trucking company. There may be a product liability issue if a component of the car or truck was faulty: tires, brakes, mirror or transmission, for example.
An astute, experienced attorney will leave no stone unturned in the search for the true cause of the trucking accident, or in the search for all available sources of compensation for the injured. For instance, in most cases, the truck driver's log, which indicates how many hours he had driven and rested, and when the truck was inspected and maintained, is a crucial piece of information that may help determine the cause of a trucking accident.
Attorney Evan M. Foulke advocates for victims trucking accidents, including collisions involving tractor-trailers, big rigs, 18-wheelers and semis. The firm represents injured people throughout the New York metropolitan area.
