Do You Need a Truck Accident Attorney?
Many types of auto accident cases in Beacon and Poughkeepsie can benefit from a lawyer’s assistance. Truck accidents in particular are confusing civil cases that often involve powerful companies as defendants. Hiring a lawyer in Dutchess County can make it easier to navigate New York’s justice system and protect your rights. An attorney can correctly identify the defendant, help you with a first-party insurance claim or go up against a third party on your behalf. You will not settle your injury claim for less than its true value with assistance from the right truck accident attorney.
Common Causes of Dutchess County, NY Truck Accidents
In New York State, a no-fault insurance law means all injured parties after auto accidents will go to their insurance companies for benefits, regardless of fault. The only exception is if the accident caused serious or catastrophic injuries. Most trucking accidents meet the state’s serious injury threshold. If you or a loved one has serious injuries from a truck accident in Dutchess County, our lawyers at Fiedler Deutsch, LLP can help you determine the cause of your crash and the defendant.
Some common causes include:
- Distracted truck driver
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Making an unsafe lane change
- Drowsy truck driver
- Drunk driver
- Negligent third-party driver
- Poorly maintained truck
- Improperly loaded cargo/lost cargo load
- Dangerous road conditions
Our personal injury attorneys will identify the defendant based on the cause of your truck accident. We will then pursue a claim to damages from that party’s insurance company on your behalf. Insurance companies and their defense firms know us and respect us. They know we do not settle for anything less than what our clients deserve.
What Elements Do You Need for a Truck Accident Claim in New York?
A successful truck crash lawsuit in New York could reimburse you for losses such as medical bills, pain and suffering damages, lost wages, and vehicle repairs or replacement. Before the defendant pays for your losses, however, you or your personal injury lawyer will need to prove that party’s legal responsibility for the wreck. This requires proof of four main elements, in most cases: duty of care, breach, causation and damages. Your attorney can help you gather enough evidence to prove the defendant’s liability for your accident, including police reports and eyewitness statements, as well as the truck’s black box. Then, your lawyer can help you fight for maximum compensation while you recover from your injuries.
