Truck Accidents

Diligent Personal Injury Attorneys Here To Help With Your Truck Accident:

Quality Representation Devoted for Producing the Best Outcome for Our Clients

A truck accident can be overwhelming due to the potential serious injuries that can result from the impact. NYCDOT reports that at least 10,000 truck accidents occur within the City each year. Here, at the Licatesi Law Group, we understand how physically and psychologically traumatizing this can be, so we are determined to help guide you through these challenging times and make you whole once again.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

One of the main reasons for truck driving accidents is because truck drivers often have grueling schedules this contributes to a state of fatigue, which ultimately causes them to fall asleep or affects the truck driver’s judgment on the road. As a result, truck drivers might travel more aggressively and recklessly. This includes accidents with delivery trucks.

What You Should Do If You Are Involved in a Truck Accident

As mentioned, a truck accident can be a scary experience for you emotionally and physically. If you are ever in this situation, here are a few things you can do:

  • Contact 911 to report the accident– This should be the first thing you do immediately after the accident occurs because it will enable first responders, such as the police and medical personnel to report the incident and transfer you to a safe location.
  • Obtain Medical Assistance– Whether you are seriously injured or not, you should still contact a doctor and go to the hospital to see if you suffered any injuries from the accident. Many injuries that develop through truck accidents can go undetected because the impact at the time of the collision is so forceful, overshadowing conditions like traumatic brain injuries and other related internal injuries.
  • Record Physical Evidence– This means exchanging contact information with the truck driver, as well as requesting the truck driver’s insurance information and employer name.
  • Exchange Information With Witnesses– If there were any people who saw the accident, ask for their assistance and contact information. This can be used as valuable evidence in your case if the truck driver asserts that you were primarily at fault.
