Experienced Tractor Trailer Injury Attorney in Elmhurst, NY Fights to Secure Compensation on Behalf of Accident Victims in Suffolk County, Nassau County, and Throughout Long Island

  • Distracted driving 
  • Driver fatigue 
  • Speeding

Who Can I Hold Liable for My Damages in a Truck Accident? 

When you are injured in a tractor-trailer accident, there are various parties that you may be able to hold liable for your damages. These include: 

  • The truck driver 
  • The trucking company 
  • The trucking company’s client 
  • The loading company 
  • The company in charge of maintaining the tractor-trailer

Frequently Asked Questions about Tractor Trailer Accidents

Why are tractor-trailer accident claims different from accidents involving only passenger cars?

Accident claims for tractor-trailer accidents are different from accidents involving only passenger vehicles because drivers and operators of these vehicles are subjected to a different set of federal and state regulations. These vehicles are also often owned by companies that have their own set of policies. These accidents also result in extensive property damage and severe injuries. Trucking companies and the insurance companies that represent them will fight to avoid suffering a loss due to paying a large sum in compensation to the victim of an accident. 

With so much at stake in a tractor-trailer accident claim, you can’t afford to take any risks. You should contact The Harrison Law Group, P.C. for consultation with an experienced tractor trailer injury attorney in Elmhurst, NY. Our attorneys will review your case for free and help you navigate the complexities of recovering compensation for a tractor-trailer accident. We will fight to recover maximum compensation for your injuries.

What is a tractor-trailer and do I have a valid case for a tractor-trailer accident claim? 

A tractor-trailer is a smaller version of a semi-truck. The tractor refers to where the driver sits, and the trailer is the part that carries the cargo. The trailer is connected to the tractor via a coupling. These vehicles often feature 18 wheels in total. 

The best way to determine whether you have a valid tractor-trailer claim is to consult with an experienced Long Island rollover accident lawyer.

Thank you to all of the staff for your diligence and patience for the past 3 years helping me with my case! It was unfortunate that i needed their services, however this firm has been amazing. At every event, whether it was an important doctors appointment or post surgical, they checked in, kept very careful notes on everything and assured me they would be checking in again.
