Long Island Truck Accident Attorney

Getting the Answers & Trustworthy Guidance You Need

The trucking industry is essential to the American economy. The transport of goods on our streets and highways forms a critical part of the distribution network that we depend on for economic prosperity and consumer satisfaction. However, in the trucking industry, time is money and every hour those goods spend on the road is an hour that they are not delivered to the customer who is going to pay for them.

Drivers are pressured to deliver goods ahead of schedule and this leads to dangerous driving practices, such as:

  • Driving despite terrible weather/road conditions
  • Speeding
  • Stress-related inattentiveness

One of the most common causes of truck accidents is drivers who fall asleep at the wheel.

The inevitable accidents that follow from these dangerous and negligent actions can have tragic consequences. Trucking companies will get their insurance companies on the scene as soon as possible - sometimes before the police arrive. They will do everything in their power to avoid paying the large claim that you will need to cover your health costs. While sometimes the driver himself will be held accountable, sometimes the case can be brought against the trucking company that rewarded unsafe driving practices. The team at The Odierno Law Firm, P.C. can protect your rights and represent you while you recover from your injuries.

Due to their size, trucks cause catastrophic damage when they collide with smaller vehicles. As a fully loaded 18-wheeler can weigh 40 tons, the smaller vehicle is not going to escape without serious damage. Passengers are extremely exposed in this situation will likely suffer serious injuries.

A truck accident attorney who is experienced in this type of situation can investigate the accident, compile the evidence and determine how to proceed with the case. Presenting a case before a commercial insurance company takes honed negotiating skills and fierce determination to get the best compensation package possible.
