Bronx Truck Accident Lawyer

There is nothing scarier than being involved in a car accident with a big truck. Whether you are in the truck or in another car, the chaos and damage that can unfold after a truck accident are immense and devastating. The aftermath can be long-lasting and often traumatizing.

These accidents not only have the potential to cause bodily harm or death, but they may also result in considerable financial losses. If you or a loved one was injured in a Bronx truck accident, you may be entitled to compensation to help recover some of these losses. Having an experienced team of truck accident lawyers by your side is critical though, as truck companies and insurance companies often do not make it easy to recover the compensation you may be entitled to.

Enter Shulman & Hill. We are a team of experienced Bronx truck accident attorneys who work with care and efficiency during your time of need. We will negotiate for fair compensation on your behalf and treat you with respect and compassion throughout the legal process.

Common Causes of Bronx Truck Accidents

Road accidents are a devastating—and often deadly—aspect of driving. Intoxicated drivers, road hazards, distracted driving, and speeding can all cause a truck accident to happen at any time. Another prominent cause of truck accidents is fatigue. Truck drivers often drive up to 11 hours at a time without breaks.

Sadly, the number of people injured—and killed—in truck accidents is on the rise. In 2018, 4,136 people died in large truck crashes across the United States. That number is 31% higher than in 2009. To make matters worse, the number of truck occupants who died was 51% higher than it was just a few years before.

What to Do After Being Injured in a Bronx Truck Accident

Contact the Police

Call the police and stay at the scene until the police arrive and you have permission to leave.

Document Your Accident

If it is safe to do so, take pictures of the scene of the truck crash, including any visible damage to your vehicle, your injuries, other vehicles that were involved, and the surrounding area. Note any witnesses who saw the accident take place, and save their contact information. Lastly, collect contact and insurance information from all of the other drivers who were involved in the crash.

Seek Medical Help

If you were struck and injured by a truck in the Bronx area, you should seek medical assistance immediately. In addition to ensuring your injuries do not become worse over time, seeing a doctor soon after your accident is an important step in your pursuit of compensation, as it helps establish a paper trail documenting the extent of your injuries.

Report Your Accident

Your pursuit of compensation starts by filing a claim with your personal insurance provider. This will help compensate you for property damage and some medical expenses.

Truck drivers who were injured while driving for work should notify their employer as soon as possible. Filing a written report of the accident and resulting injuries can help make the process of pursuing workers’ compensation benefits much smoother.

Contact a Truck Accident Lawyer

If another driver caused your accident, you may qualify for additional compensation to help cover your pain and suffering, loss of earnings, medical costs, and more. To help build the strongest case on your behalf, it is important to contact a Bronx personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Shulman & Hill offers free, no-obligation legal consultations.
