Securing the Compensation You Deserve Truck Accident in a City Intersection
Accidents involving commercial trucks often result in severe, life-altering injuries due to their immense size and weight. Dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident can be overwhelming, both emotionally and financially.

Evaluating the Damage After a Truck Accident
Truck accidents often result in severe injuries, such as head and back injuries, paralysis, fractures, and even fatalities. It is essential to thoroughly understand the short- and long-term effects of these injuries, including physical limitations, lost wages, and ongoing medical expenses for rehabilitation, pain management, and related treatments.
Our dedicated Manhattan truck accident attorneys remain committed to your case, working tirelessly to secure every possible avenue of compensation for your injuries.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Truck accidents can occur due to various reasons. Mechanical failures, driver fatigue, inadequate training, and even the negligence of other drivers sharing the road can lead to tragic accidents. For instance, a driver may have merged in front of a truck without signaling or may have been driving in a truck's blind spot when it changed lanes.
Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Failure to follow traffic laws
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Violations of hours-of-service regulations
- Improper truck maintenance
- Pressure from trucking companies to meet unrealistic quotas
- Failure to conduct proper background checks on truck drivers
- Lack of adequate supervision
- Defective trucks or truck parts (tires, brakes, etc.)
- Defective or dangerous road conditions
- Unsafe weather conditions
Regardless of how the accident occurred, we understand the trauma you have experienced and the financial burdens you now face. Our Manhattan truck accident lawyers meticulously investigate each case to determine fault and pursue all available sources of compensation.
Liability in Truck Accidents in NY
Truck accident claims often involve complex issues of liability, making them more challenging than typical car or motorcycle accident cases. While the truck driver may be responsible for causing the accident, they may not be the only party at fault.
Truck drivers are usually on duty while operating their vehicles, which means their actions and behavior can often be attributed to their employers. Therefore, trucking companies may be held liable for an accident.
For example, if a truck driver falsified their rest breaks and drove while fatigued, resulting in an accident, but it is discovered that the trucking company was aware of this misconduct and turned a blind eye, the company could be held responsible. Similarly, if a truck driver causes an accident while under the influence, and it is revealed that the trucking company hired them despite a history of drunk driving arrests, the company could be liable.
Other parties that may bear liability include manufacturers of defective truck parts, supervisors who failed to ensure proper maintenance, construction companies responsible for faulty roadways, or individuals who neglected to address reported truck issues.
As you can see, these cases can quickly become complex. It is crucial to work with an experienced truck accident attorney in Manhattan who understands the laws, the legal process, and how they apply to your specific case.
