Car, Truck, and Motor Vehicle Accidents

As Car, Truck, and Vehicle Accident Lawyers in New York, We Help Injured Clients Seek Full Compensation

Statistics for Car, Truck and Automobile Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is responsible for compiling accident statistics in the United States.  In the most recent statistics released by NHTSA for the year 2012, on average someone was killed in a car accident in the United States approximately every 15 minutes.  During 2012, police reported approximately 5,615,000 vehicles involved crashes, in which more than 33,000 people were killed and another 2.3 million people were injured.

Tragically, many of those injured and killed are the result of drunk driving accidents.  Inattention, texting, and a number of other factors also are causes of accidents.

Regardless of the underlying cause of an accident, if you or your family has been injured, you deserve full and fair compensation from all those who are legally responsible.  At our firm, this remains our primary objective.

Evaluating Your Case to Identify Those at Fault

As experienced New York car and truck accident lawyers, we will carefully investigate your case so that we can identify every possible contributing cause of your accident.  In many cases, there are multiple people and entities at fault, including other drivers, vehicle manufacturers, and even those responsible for roadways.

Often, we will retain accident reconstructions and other experts to help evaluate an accident scene.  These experts use scientific methodologies and accident re-creation tools and software to determine as best as possible exactly how an accident occurred. These experts, and their conclusions, can be critical in proving liability at trial.

We Investigate While You Recover

If you’ve been injured in a car or truck accident caused by someone else, your focus should be on your recovery – not the legal process.  We provide peace of mind for our clients by carefully investigating their case, including hiring accident reconstructionists and other professionals when necessary to help advance client claims.

We routinely work with healthcare providers in payment and other matters, often requesting that payment be postponed if possible until after the duration of a case.  We help clients establish the medical bills and other expenses incurred as the result of their accident so that their damage claim will include full compensation.

Call Us to Learn About the Opportunities for Recovery for Your Accident

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation, and we accept most personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis (meaning that we only receive a fee is we are successful in obtaining damages or compensation).

We are aggressive in seeking full compensation for our clients from all those who may be legally liable. Find out about how we may be able to help you in seeking to recover the damages to which you may be entitled.
