Proving the Cause of 18-Wheeler Accidents in New York City

A wide range of factors can lead to catastrophic and fatal trucking accidents. At Alan M. Cass and Associates, we never make any false assumptions when handling 18-wheeler accident claims. Our New York City personal injury lawyers conduct thorough investigations to uncover all potential liability factors.

We work with accident scene reconstructionists to analyze the series of events just before the collision occurred. We also review any log book records, fuel tickets and maintenance records to help us understand the cause of the 18-wheeler accident, such as:

  • Truck driver negligence — our legal team has a strong background holding truck drivers accountable for drunk driving, driving with few rest breaks, speeding to make their quotas or failing to properly load the 18-wheeler
  • Truck owner liability — we are committed to proving fault against truck companies who failed to properly hire and train truck drivers, pressured drivers into making unrealistic deadlines or avoided standard maintenance procedures

Truck companies devote substantial resources working with defense firms focused on mitigating their exposure to any liability. Some of our New York City truck accident attorneys worked for insurance companies before focusing exclusively on protecting accident victims and injured workers.

We know firsthand the games insurance companies play to try and limit our clients' financial recovery. Our legal team can overcome any challenges thrown at us. We are fully prepared to prove fault and secure maximum compensation for the current and long-term damages our clients have endured.
