A truck accident is inherently more dangerous than a typical passenger vehicle accident, often resulting in serious injuries that may significantly alter the quality of your life. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a commercial truck accident, you may be eligible for significant compensation. Contact the law offices of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff, and Wolff, LLP to explore your legal options for maximum recovery. Our team of New York truck accident attorneys have the skills and experience that can make the difference in your case.
There are few more complex and catastrophic injury cases than those involving commercial trucks and they often involve large companies. The trucking industry is heavily regulated at the federal level, but the regulations are often violated. All issues that may be relevant to your claim or lawsuit must be investigated in filing a claim or lawsuit to recover compensation – and seek justice for you or your loved ones. Trucking companies will always have a team of attorneys ready to investigate the collision and do everything in their power to protect their interests. An experienced personal injury lawyer is highly recommended in order to protect yours. We are here to guide those we represent through the process, and we handle all of the critical details, from start to finish.
The first step in seeking full compensation for damages is to identify the negligent parties – and in a truck accident case, there may be several parties named. These parties may include:
The accident may have been caused by the driver. Some common forms of driver negligence include:
Due to the variety of types of commercial trucks, there can be various types of accidents that occur:
The types of compensation that may be pursued in a truck accident claim or lawsuit include both economic and non-economic damages. The compensation pursued may include, but is not limited to:
Determining what level of compensation is available to pursue is thorough, complex, and often confusing. At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, we have professional resources to manage every detail of your case, including an accident investigation team, medical experts, and financial experts to value the losses you or your loved one has experienced as a result of the truck accident.
All large commercial truck accidents will involve an investigation by the New York police, and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board). We don’t count on the investigation performed by these agencies as our sole source of supporting evidence, but go further, including seeking cellphone records and other data that could reveal the actions of the driver, along with drug and alcohol test results performed after the collision. We will thoroughly investigate the cause of the collision, including collecting data from the truck’s “black box,” a system in large commercial trucks that records speed and other data – this data must be preserved and evaluated.
In any personal injury case, the fact of negligence must be established. It may be proven that a truck driver engaged in dangerous or reckless driving behavior, was texting while driving, under the influence, or violated the Hours of Service regulations for property-carrying drivers from the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration). The truck manufacturer, maintenance company, parts manufacturer or other party be found negligent cases in which a vital safety system failed, contributing to the collision. Every case requires extensive research.
At Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff, LLP, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to secure the compensation you deserve after a truck accident. We are well-versed in negotiations with insurance companies, and if it is necessary to take your case to court, we have significant experience in trial preparation and presentation.

"I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results. My friend was very happy when they settled for more than was hoped and now they can continue with their lives. They worked with my insurance company and I am very pleased with the way the case worked out. This New York personal injury law firm makes clients feel comfortable and they were attentive, professional and know about the law.
