Commercial drivers are often in a hurry to meet deadlines or fatigued from a long day behind the wheel. When they break traffic laws or lose focus, there is a potential for great harm, especially when trucks or commercial vehicles collide with a smaller vehicle.
Our accident lawyers at Sullivan & Brill, LLP in New York City work to help accident victims obtain full compensation for serious injuries suffered in collisions with trucks and commercial vehicles. Our Brooklyn injury attorneys have the proven ability to hold commercial drivers and their employers accountable for the medical, financial and personal harm.
Injury Attorneys for Collisions with Commercial Trucks
Our lead personal injury lawyer, Joseph F. Sullivan, has practiced in motor vehicle accident litigation since 1994.
We have obtained notable settlements and verdicts, including accidents involving trucks and commercial vehicles:
- Freight trucks and delivery vans
- Package delivery trucks (UPS, FedEx)
- Utility trucks and construction vehicles
- Sanitation trucks
- Taxis, limos, and shuttles
- Ambulances and para-transit vans
- Food delivery cars
Commercial vehicles may be highly insured for catastrophic injuries or fatality, but this does not mean that compensation comes easy. Employers are well defended by their own lawyers or the insurance company defense counsel. At Sullivan & Brill, LLP, we always prepare for trial and we are not afraid to take major employers and corporations to court if they will not offer a fair settlement.
Our commercial vehicle accident lawyers know how to investigate truck accidents, taxi accidents, and similar cases. We act swiftly to preserve evidence and put the trucking company or commercial entity on notice to provide logbooks, maintenance records, and other documents. We have access to engineers and accident reconstructionists who can examine the vehicles and the crash scene to establish liability. Was the driver sleepy or impaired? Was the truck overloaded? Were the brakes or tires worn out? Was the driver speeding, tailgating, weaving through traffic, or otherwise driving aggressively?
