Why Choose "The Bull" for Your Car Accident Injury Case?

Don't Get Lost in the System

Nearly 15,000 motor vehicle accidents occur in New York City every month, with the majority stemming from a driver’s failure to exercise ordinary care. Many of these accidents involve trucks and result in life-altering injuries, lost work time, and even fatalities. Such accidents can leave victims and their families struggling to make ends meet. Insurance companies are not on your side; instead of protecting their policyholders, they deploy teams of corporate lawyers to minimize compensation to victims. To ensure you receive the justice and compensation you deserve, you need an aggressive and experienced law firm that will fight relentlessly for you. Trust New York Truck Accident Lawyer to stand up for your rights and help you get back on your feet.
I’ve Been Injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident:

What Do I Need to Know?

Every owner of a vehicle insured in New York carries “no-fault” insurance. This ensures that, irrespective of fault, the following benefits are typically available to the driver, passengers, or pedestrians involved in an accident:

  • Medical expenses coverage up to $50,000.
  • 80% of lost earnings from work, capped at a maximum payment of $2,000 per month for up to three years post-accident.
  • Reimbursement of other reasonable and necessary expenses, like household help and transportation costs to medical treatment, up to $25 per day for up to a year following the accident.
  • A $2,000 death benefit, payable to the estate of a person killed in a motor vehicle accident (in addition to the $50,000 basic No-Fault limit).

There are time-sensitive procedures to pursue No-Fault coverage and potentially file a lawsuit for additional damages. Navigating this process alone is challenging, and errors could jeopardize your case. It’s crucial to have a skilled and experienced New York Truck Accident Lawyer by your side to fiercely protect your rights and ensure you receive rightful compensation. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Trust our team to fight for the full value of your lost wages and diminished earning capacity.

Absolutely. While no-fault insurance often covers medical expenses and lost wages in minor accidents, it may not be sufficient for more severe injuries. If you’ve sustained an injury in a car accident in New York, you retain the right to pursue legal action directly against the negligent driver of the other vehicle. Every vehicle insured in New York is mandated by law to carry at least $25,000 of liability insurance to compensate accident victims. Some vehicles have even higher coverage limits. With over a century of combined experience, our team at New York Truck Accident Lawyer is adept at maximizing insurance recovery for our clients. Don’t assume that you’re unable to file a personal injury lawsuit following a car accident. Even seemingly minor injuries can escalate into serious medical issues. Reach out to our New York City car accident lawyers for a complimentary, thorough evaluation of your case. We’ll outline your legal rights, discuss your options, and assist you in pursuing the financial compensation you deserve.
Absolutely. While the minimum insurance mandated by law for property damage is $10,000, many vehicles carry higher coverage limits. If you’ve been in a truck accident, it’s crucial to reach out to an experienced attorney who can initiate legal action on your behalf to secure compensation not only for property damage but also for any injuries you’ve suffered.
At New York Truck Accident Lawyer, we operate on a contingency basis, just like any reputable personal injury law firm. This means that if we agree to take on your case, you won’t owe any upfront fees to retain our services, nor will you be charged any fees throughout the legal process. You’ll only pay us if we win your case. Additionally, if you require medical attention, we’ll cover the necessary fees upfront to ensure your well-being isn’t compromised. Similar to attorney fees, these costs will be deducted from your eventual compensation, allowing you to prioritize your recovery and loved ones over financial stress.
If an insurance company reaches out to you following your accident, the wisest course of action is to direct them to your attorney and refrain from signing any documents. At New York Truck Accident Lawyer, we boast years of experience dealing with numerous insurance companies and have established relationships with many of them. Countless motor vehicle accident victims have jeopardized their entitlements and potential lawsuit settlements by mishandling communication and information with insurance providers. Trust us to navigate these interactions on your behalf to safeguard your rights and maximize your compensation.

In New York, undocumented individuals possess the same rights as all other residents if they sustain injuries in an accident. Undocumented immigrants maintain the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit following a car crash, seeking compensation for lost wages, personal injuries, and even wrongful death. State law protects your immigration status, ensuring it cannot be used against you in court. Filing a personal injury claim cannot lead to deportation.

At New York Truck Accident Lawyer, we’ve successfully represented numerous undocumented immigrants injured in automobile accidents, firmly believing in their entitlement to equal justice. Many of our clients may not speak English. If you or a loved one is an undocumented immigrant injured in a crash, reach out to our New York City car accident lawyers for confidential legal assistance.

Absolutely. Being partially at fault doesn’t absolve a negligent defendant of responsibility. Even if you believe you share some blame for the accident, a skilled attorney can minimize the percentage of your fault.

New York operates under pure comparative fault principles, meaning each party is held accountable in proportion to their share of the blame. You can still seek financial compensation even if you bear some responsibility for the accident. Don’t assume you lack rights just because a police officer or insurance adjuster deemed you partially at fault. Our NYC truck accident attorneys will vigorously ensure all liable parties are held accountable for their contribution to the collision.
