Injuries Resulting from Accidents with Commercial Vehicles
On a typical business day in any community throughout the New York City Metro area, you will see thousands of delivery vans driving and backing down crowded city streets, trying to meet tight delivery deadlines. Unlike the large 18-wheeler tractor-trailers on the Interstates, however, many of the drivers of smaller step-vans and commercial delivery trucks are untrained and unregulated.
When commercial vehicles cause a motor vehicle accident, the resulting injuries can be quite catastrophic, especially if the vehicle was large and heavy. Some of the most catastrophic injuries to come out of these types of accidents are:
If you lost a loved one in an accident, no amount of compensation can erase your grief, but it can help you get back on your feet by providing a way to pay for medical and funeral expenses, and to replace the lost income of your loved one.
Injuries as severe as those listed above can alter your life. They can result in disability and can make it impossible to go back to your job and earn a living. Some of them may require long-term or permanent medical treatment or rehabilitation. Our accident lawyer will fight aggressively to recover compensation to help you deal with these consequences.
Choosing Ira Maurer for Your Delivery Van Accident Case
Every year throughout New York, hundreds of auto accidents resulting in serious injuries occur, often involving negligence on the part of the commercial truck driver or the semi truck owner. If you were injured in an accident involving any kind of commercial vehicle, you should be aware that normal insurance claims procedures may not apply.
Often, commercial trucks carry special insurance protection or the truck owner 'self-insures' rather than pay the high insurance premium. Fighting for the money damages you are entitled to for your medical care, lost earnings and other financial damages requires experience and knowledge of New York insurance laws. Mr. Maurer has been practicing in New York for many years, and he has the knowledge and skills to fight for compensation on your behalf in a case involving a commercial vehicle.
