Benefits of Hiring a NYC Truck Accident Lawyer

According to the NY State Department of Motor Vehicles, over 5,000 people are injured or killed by large trucks each year in the State of New York. Due to the size and weight of semis and other commercial vehicles, accidents involving trucks often cause greater damage than those caused by smaller vehicles. If you’ve been injured in a commercial vehicle accident, the truck accident lawyers at Raphaelson & Levine can help you recover compensation for a number of damages, including:

  • Current and future medical bills (related to the truck accident)
  • Pain and suffering (including mental anguish and emotional duress)
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Home and vehicle modifications (such as wheelchair ramps and lifts)
  • Permanent injury, disability, and property damage or loss
  • Loss of career or earning capacity (including lost wages from time off of work)

When Hiring a Truck Accident Attorney, Experience Makes a Difference

How does one find a good truck accident lawyer in NYC? Many personal injury attorneys are listed in local directories like the Yellow Pages. If you do an Internet search, you’ll find many attorneys who have helpful web pages. But before hiring any of these attorneys, make sure you ask how many truck accident cases they have actually handled and what the outcome of those cases was. At Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm, our lawyers have decades of experience representing clients in truck accident cases and have secure truck accident settlements and verdicts worth hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients. We understand New York’s trucking regulations and laws and will ensure your voice is heard, respected, and justly awarded.

Truck Accident Settlements & Verdicts Obtained By Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm:

  • $900,000: A former client was rear-ended by a truck at a stop light. The accident exacerbated existing back injuries. Our firm argued that the collision significantly worsened our client’s condition. The result was a $900,000 truck accident settlement.
  • $750,000: A 30-year-old woman was injured in an accident when the car she was riding in was hit by a truck. The impact caused a herniated disk that required epidural injections and a laminectomy. Even though our client had previous back injuries, our lawyers were able to secure $750,000 on her behalf.
  • $500,000: Our client suffered severe injuries after being rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on the expressway. The case was difficult to prove because the accident did not leave even a scratch on his vehicle.
