New York City Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Every good and service delivered in New York City requires a truck. And while their livelihood depends upon a good safety record, truck drivers work long shifts and face pressure to meet deadlines. Unfortunately, too many New York motorists and pedestrians pay the price for those long shifts and delivery pressures.

The Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm advocates for people who were seriously or permanently injured in commercial vehicle accidents. We will fight to hold transportation companies, corporate fleet owners, local businesses, utility companies, or municipalities accountable for the devastating aftermath that commercial vehicle accidents cause to the lives of our clients.

We handle commercial truck accidents throughout New York City, including Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. Contact us for a free consultation 212-268-3222.

NYC Delivery Truck and Van Accidents

Large trucks pose a great danger to other motorists because of their size and their inability to navigate the roads like automobiles. In many situations, the height, width, and massive cargo create dangers that mandate commercial vehicles to be subject to specific regulation by the federal government and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).

Raphaelson & Levine has a 30-year record of verdicts and settlements in personal injury litigation, including many commercial truck accident cases. We have the resources to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to prove negligence of the owners of commercial vehicles such as:

  • Freight trucks
  • Tractor-trailers
  • Package delivery trucks (UPS, FedEx)
  • Sanitation trucks
  • Construction vehicles
  • Service trucks and vans
  • Maintenance and utility vehicles
  • Private buses and shuttles
  • Delivery cars and courier vans

Commercial drivers are often hurrying to make deliveries or get to the next job. This leads to speeding, weaving through traffic, tailgating, pulling out into traffic, backing up without caution, and other unsafe traffic maneuvers. Truck drivers who are fatigued from long hours are less attentive and slower to react, even drowsy at the wheel.

Commercial vehicle accidents may also result from violations of NYSDOT regulations regarding weight restrictions, hazardous cargo, or the condition of brakes, tires, lights, trailers, mirrors, or backup warning bells. Our attorneys know what evidence to seek, including the truck’s maintenance records, the driver’s logs, and the driver’s training, licensure, driving history and criminal record.
