Nassau County Truck Accident Lawyer

A crash with an 18-wheeler doesn’t have to leave you bankrupt as well as injured. Get the help you need to collect full compensation by working with a Nassau County truck accident lawyer.

Commercial trucking is an industry filled with risks, and unfortunately, those risks put other people on the road in danger when things go wrong. From fatigued truck drivers to unsecured cargo, if you were injured in a crash with a semi-truck or its freight, you might have grounds to seek compensation through a personal injury claim.

Unfortunately, neither the trucking company nor their insurance company is going to be eager to accept responsibility: the trucking company because it could damage their reputation and increase their insurance premiums, and the insurer because paying out on claims means that much less in profits.

You don’t have to let them take advantage of you, however. A Nassau County truck accident lawyer from Siler & Ingber, LLP can build the case that gives you the best chance for collecting full compensation for your injuries and losses.

Fault and Semi-Truck Accidents

Car accidents are rarely straightforward when it comes to determining fault, and this is even truer in 18-wheeler accidents. As commercial vehicles, the average semi-truck has a number of different individuals and companies involved in maintaining and operating it. Likewise, the cargo will have its own set of parties involved. Any number of these entities could bear responsibility for the collision—likely more than one.

Your Nassau County truck accident lawyer will investigate the wreck to determine exactly what happened, why, and who is liable. You need to name all of the negligent parties in your claim, as New York’s comparative negligence laws make each party responsible for only their portion of the damages.

These are just a few of the parties that will need to be considered for fault during the investigation:

  • The trucker
  • The trucking company
  • The cargo owner, especially if the cargo was hazardous in some way
  • The cargo-loading team
  • The maintenance company
  • Government agencies in charge of road maintenance

The Most Compensation Possible

Our firm won’t be satisfied with accepting the first settlement offered by the insurance company. Your Nassau County truck accident lawyer will ensure that the compensation you receive includes every penny you are owed—whether things can be settled out of court or must go to trial.

You deserve to be compensated for all financial expenses related to the crash and your injuries. Additionally, you should receive funds to cover your non-economic damages, as well, which represent how your quality of life has been negatively impacted in the 18-wheeler crash’s aftermath.

  • Medical bills for surgeries, checkups, medications, and equipment
  • Lost income and earning ability
  • Transportation expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement and emotional distress
  • Lost enjoyment of life
