Hurt in a Truck Accident? You Deserve Experienced Legal Help

Truck wrecks aren’t like other kinds of motor vehicle accidents. It isn’t just that crashes involving a semi-truck or other heavy vehicle tend to be more severe and cause worse injuries and higher medical bills. They also tend to be legally complex.

Cases often require lengthy investigations and a thorough understanding of federal and state regulations. Your lawyer must also act quickly to preserve communication devices, logbooks, maintenance records, and other critical pieces of evidence before the trucking company can legally destroy them. And they must be prepared for the aggressive tactics used by the trucking company and insurer.

You deserve fair treatment and fair compensation. We can help.

Truck Accident FAQs

How much is my truck accident worth?

While no attorney can dictate the exact worth of a case, an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer knows how insurance companies figure the value of a case and will fight for fair and reasonable compensation.

In addition to lost wages and medical expenses, you could receive compensation for pain and suffering, including emotional distress; loss of use of a body part or function; loss of quality of life, including companionship and consortium; inconvenience; and compensation for amputation, excessive scarring and disfigurement.

Because trucking companies are required to carry a significant amount of liability insurance coverage, settlements tend to be higher than in typical passenger vehicle cases.

How much will a truck accident lawyer cost me?

When you work with Feroleto Law, you won’t pay any legal fees unless we win your case. We work on a contingency basis, which means you don’t have any up-front legal fees and we get paid only when we win compensation in your truck accident case. We will commit all our resources to obtaining the best possible outcome in your case.

Can any accident attorney represent me in a truck accident case?

We strongly recommend that you choose an attorney that has experience with truck accident cases, due to the complex laws and regulations that govern the industry. They may involve multiple liable third parties (such as maintenance personnel, dispatchers, cargo loaders, or equipment manufactures).

For these and other reasons, trucking accident cases tend to require a high level of expertise and a significant investment of time, effort, and money to litigate. You want to be sure that your attorney has the skill, resources, and determination to get you the best possible outcome.

How long do I have to file a truck accident case?

New York allows you up to three years to file a personal injury lawsuit or two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

However, you should contact our New York truck accident attorneys as soon as possible after the accident. Evidence disappears quickly. Investigating the crash, recovering as much as possible from your injuries, and negotiating with the insurance company will take time. The sooner we begin to work on your case, the better.
