Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer
If you are driving a car or motorcycle and you collide with a truck, the laws of physics thrust you into a terrifying situation. Trucks, especially 18-wheelers, are much heavier and longer than two or four-wheeled vehicles. Their stopping distance is far longer than that of an automobile, and the impact they bring to a collision can result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. Additionally, many truck drivers are employees of a company or are self-employed, contracting with companies to carry loads.
All of these factors create an accident with many more factors than most other auto accidents. The insurance company for the trucking company will hire the best lawyers it can find to defend the driver. That is why you need the personal injury law firm of Brian J. Levy & Associates, P.C. at your side. From law offices in the Bronx and on Long Island, our founding attorney works directly with clients, using his 15 years of experience in personal injury practice to carefully research accident scene evidence and other post-injury documentation to build a claim for you that truly compensates you for everything you have lost in the accident.
