Trucking accidents can be some of the most devastating crashes on the road. Large commercial trucks such as 18 wheelers and semi-trucks can have catastrophic results when they collide with a passenger vehicle. Trucking accidents rarely result in mild injuries. Tragically, large trucks cause many fatal traffic accidents every year across New York highways.

New York Trucking Accident Statute of Limitations

Under Section 214 of New York’s Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP), you have three (3) years from the date of the accident to bring an action to recover damages for property damage and personal injury.
Pursuant to Section 5-4.1 of New York’s Estates, Powers & Trusts (EPT) Law, the personal representative of a decedent’s estate has two (2) years from the date of the decedent’s death to bring a claim for wrongful death.

Truck Accident FAQs

Who can I sue after a trucking accident?

You may bring a claim against anyone who was responsible for your injuries. In many cases, there may be more than one party that can be held liable. Generally, you will want to pursue a claim against the truck driver and trucking company. However, if an auto part defect caused the accident, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. If there was maintenance that was inadequately performed, a mechanic might be named in the suit. At Ajlouny Injury Law, we vigorously investigate all factors that may have contributed to an accident and pursue litigation against any liable parties.

How much money will I get?

The amount of compensation you receive depends on the extent of your injuries and the circumstances of your accident. You may seek recovery for current and future medical bills, physical therapy and rehabilitation, lost wages and potential earnings, and the cost of vehicle repair. If you have sustained serious injuries, you may ask for compensation for non-economic loss, such as pain and suffering.

How long will my trucking accident case take?

The length of time it takes to receive compensation after a trucking accident depends on the case. Insurance companies may offer you a settlement immediately after the accident, but the offer may be substantially lower than your case is worth. You should always have your case reviewed by an attorney before accepting any settlement to ensure that you are getting the maximum recovery allowed under the law. Every claim is different, but our attorneys will always work to get you the money you need as quickly as possible.

Why do I need an attorney?

Our attorneys will help you get the most money for your case. Without the help of an experienced lawyer, you may end up settling your claim for far less than it is worth, or worse receiving nothing for your injuries. Trucking accident litigation is complex. There could be multiple defendants and multiple insurers. It is imperative that you notify all parties and insurance companies of your claim to get the settlement you deserve.
