When large trucks collide with passenger cars, the injuries can be catastrophic. Truck accidents can be more complex than a collision between two passenger vehicles because there are often multiple at-fault parties, including the truck driver, trucking company, cargo loaders, leasing companies, and manufacturers of defective vehicle parts. In these situations, it’s important that you select a legal team with experience handling these types of cases. The team at Chaikin LaPenna, PLLC has extensive experience pursuing compensation for victims of truck accident injuries in NYC.
In addition to ensuring that the proper parties are named in the lawsuit, our attorneys will also ensure that you’re properly awarded compensation for your physical, financial and emotional losses. This involves proving that your injuries and expenses are directly related to the accident. This is typically accomplished by obtaining medical records, bills and correspondences. It may also involve hiring experts to determine the extent of your losses.
Our attorneys will review all of the evidence and documents in your case to assess the totality of your damages. Once we have a complete picture of your losses, we’ll use it to negotiate with the insurance companies to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries and expenses. In some cases, we’re able to convince insurance companies to settle out of court for a significant amount.
How Can I Choose the Right Attorney?
When selecting a truck accident Attorney for truck injuries with a proven track record lawyer, it’s important to consider their subject matter expertise and reputation. However, it’s equally important to select a lawyer who can effectively communicate and listen to you. You’ll want to schedule free consultations with potential lawyers and evaluate their responsiveness and communication style. You should also look at client testimonials and reviews, as these can give you a good idea of how your lawyer might treat you as a client.
The last thing you want is for your truck injury attorney to neglect other clients or fail to take the time to get to know you and your unique situation. That’s why it’s essential that you find an attorney who has a proven track record of delivering results and treating their clients with care.
A lawyer’s caseload is another factor that you should take into consideration. You’ll want to choose an attorney who has a moderate or low caseload so that they can dedicate the time and resources necessary to your case. If you’re going to trial, this is even more important because trials are very time consuming and require the attention of an experienced lawyer.
