In a collision between a truck and a car, occupants of the car are often at greatest risk of catastrophic injury or death. If you have been involved in an accident with a truck, you should have an attorney who will work diligently to get you the care and coverage you deserve after your truck injury. It is critical that you act quickly — before any evidence disappears and before you talk with the insurance companies.
At Goldberg Sager & Associates in Brooklyn, we advocate on your behalf every step of the way, handling insurance issues, medical care and billing and fighting for the maximum recovery you deserve. Our team of trucking accident lawyers can outline your legal options. We handle all truck accident cases on a contingency fee basis, taking payment only after we have reached a settlement or verdict for you.

Our Brooklyn auto accident attorneys work diligently to determine the causes of trucking accidents in order to evaluate potential liability. We investigate the crash scene and examine all evidence, including drivers’ logs, truck maintenance and repair records and possible mechanical failures. Where road conditions may have contributed to the accident, we also check the records of the government agencies responsible for those streets or highways.
Truck accidents are often much more severe than other auto accidents. Reasons for this include:
For these reasons, collisions involving trucks can be catastrophic, especially for occupants of smaller vehicles involved. If you’ve been injured in such an accident, a skilled personal injury can decide how these factors contributed to the seriousness of the resulting injuries.
You may be entitled to reimbursement for past and future medical bills and treatment lost wages, and property damage. For serious injuries, you may also be eligible for compensation for noneconomic damages like pain and suffering. We will negotiate with the insurance companies and advocate for the maximum recovery you are due. While we do our best to save you the time and expense of a trial, our lawyers are equally skilled in litigation and ready to pursue your case in court if necessary.
