If you were victimized in a trucking accident and are thinking about filing a truck accident claim, waste no time in speaking to a New York City injury lawyer from Greenberg & Stein, P.C. for legal assistance.

Who is liable?

Our New York City truck accident attorneys can help you determine who is at fault for the commercial vehicle collision and then take action to ensure that they are held liable for their reckless or negligent behaviors. In our representation of your case, we will investigate the following:

  • Fault of the Driver: The driver was directly responsible for the cause of the accident. This may be the case in situations where the driver was in violation of the amount of time they are allotted on the road or if they were operating the rig under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Fault of the Manufacturer: If it is determined that the truck’s tires, brake system or hydraulics were the cause of the accident, the manufacturer of the product may be responsible for the damages that ensued. A crash analyst expert may be brought in to determine if this was the cause.
  • Fault of the Loader or Shipper: Most trucks are en route to their destination carrying goods for drop-off or pickup. If a loader did not properly secure the goods to the rig there is a possibility of it slipping or coming loose. This is generally a problem for flat-bed rigs or produce shippers.
  • Fault of the Owner or Leaser: The company or owner that leased the truck to a driver can sometimes be held responsible for an accident. If the rig was not maintained properly, it could cause a serious problem for the driver and even lead to a collision.
