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.

What Types of Compensation Am I Entitled To After a Commercial Vehicle Accident?

The effects of a commercial vehicle accident can negatively impact your life for years. In severe cases, people find themselves faced with the challenge of navigating the rest of their lives with a disability. Lost wages and future medical expenses can all be considered.

Ira Maurer will help you determine what types of damages you are owed and what you are most likely to recover from a case. These may include:

Medical Bills and Rehabilitative Costs

Following an accident, you may face significant financial hardship from doctor’s visits, specialist appointments, and physical therapy. If your injuries were serious enough to require surgery, you may seek reimbursement for the cost.

Victims of commercial vehicle accidents may also require ongoing medical care, assistive devices, and prescription medications to manage their injuries or resulting disabilities. In these cases, you may be able to sue for the future cost of healthcare related to your injuries.

Lost Income

One of the most serious impacts of any motor vehicle accident is lost income. Missing work to recover from injuries, or being unable to resume working after an injury, may entitle you to compensation.

Payments for Reduced Earning Abilities

After a serious commercial motor vehicle accident, many people find themselves with a reduced capacity to resume their former roles. You may seek restitution for these lost expenses and the impact they will have on your financial security in the future.

Psychological Damages, Emotional Trauma, and Therapy Costs

The physical injuries are challenging enough — the emotional damages of a commercial vehicle accident can also be debilitating. People may find themselves wrestling with depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder. These conditions have a serious impact on their ability to function in their daily lives; furthermore, the cost of therapy to address these psychological conditions may be recovered through court.

Pain and Suffering

It is not only a victim who suffers from an accident. Their entire family is placed into emotional distress as they struggle to make up for lost wages and watch their loved one recover from their injuries. The pain and suffering inflicted during the accident can be significant enough that you pursue compensatory damages.

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.
