How will an attorney help a New Rochelle truck accident case?

Victims of truck accidents often quickly become overwhelmed by the other parties involved in these incidents. Aggressive insurance carriers and trucking companies will do what they can to take advantage of victims when they are down on their luck to limit the amount of money they payout in a settlement. However, our New Rochelle truck accident lawyers will use our resources and experience to:

  • Obtain critical evidence needed to prove liability. This can include electronic truck logs, GPS data, available video or photo surveillance, statements from eyewitnesses, police reports, and more.
  • Work with trusted medical and economic experts to evaluate the clients and help calculate total expected losses and damages.
  • Negotiate to achieve a fair and just settlement on behalf of the client.
  • Prepare every case for trial so that if other parties involved refuse to offer a fair settlement, we are ready to try the client’s case.

Truck accidents can cause catastrophic injuries

Large commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Due to the size and weight of these vehicles, victims in accidents involving large trucks often sustain severe injuries. This can include:
