When a car is involved in a wreck with a large commercial truck, there is generally only one outcome: the car driver and passengers lose. But you don't have to lose twice. Select Gordon, Elias & Seely as your truck accident lawyers in the Staten Island metro area. Hiring a knowledgeable Staten Island truck accident lawyer can often mean collecting millions of dollars in damages, rather than thousands. There is no easier way to put it: If you hire an attorney without extensive experience handling claims against truck companies, you may be making a serious mistake.

Holding Drivers and Trucking Companies Accountable for Trucking Accidents

Trucker often drive twelve to fifteen hours or more without stopping for legally required rests, meals and sleep. Their employers often push them beyond the breaking point. That can result in taking shortcuts behind the wheel and every shortcut that leads to an accident is an act of negligence. Drivers are required to adhere to regulations involving time on the road, number of breaks, and weight of the load they carry. Under the law, a trucking company can be held liable for the negligence of its drivers.

Staten Island Trucking Accident Attorneys

At Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we represent Staten Island residents on a contingency basis. There are no initial, out-of-pocket expenses to you. We manage your case while you focus on recovering from serious trucking accident injuries caused by:

Experience and Resources to Mediate or Litigate Your Trucking Accident Claim

We use experience and thorough legal knowledge, coupled with vast resources, to build your tractor-trailer crash injury claim based on the facts. Expertise comes from our network of trucking industry experts and accident reconstructionists. From there, we seek the best resolution, through negotiation, mediation or litigation.

Though there are many streets, roads, and state highways where truck accidents occur, often times they occur on Interstates such as I 278 other major truck routes like US Highway US 440. They also occur on State roads such as Staten Island Expressway, Richmond Parkway, MLK Expressway, Hylan Boulevard, West Shore Expressway and Richmond Parkway

Catastrophic Injuries When Safety Was Not a Priority

It does not matter what kind of truck is involved in your accident. They can include:

  • Tanker Trucks - Oilfield Trucks- Pipe Haulers- Chemical Trucks and other trucks with trailers carrying hazardous materials
  • Slow Moving - Log Trucks, Garbage Trucks, Dump Trucks, Cement Trucks, Gravel Trucks and Construction Zone Trucks entering and exiting a highway construction zone, Wide-Load Convoys, Bulldozers, Farm Equipment and slow moving Paving Equipment
  • Freight Liners, UPS, DHL, Fed-Ex, U-Haul, Mayflower and other van lines
  • Shuttle Bus, Casino Buses to and from Turning Stone, Akwesasne Mohawk, Seneca Niagra, and Turning Stone, Vacation Bus, Tour Bus, Greyhound Buses
  • Most all other 18-wheeler, Big-Rig, Flatbeds, Tractor/Trailer combinations or any type truck that involves a pre-trip inspection.

Commercial Trucks Not Large In Size But With A Large Insurance Policy

The difference in size of cash settlements in commercial truck cases are potentially much larger than auto to auto accidents generally for one reason: the size of the policy of insurance. Your personal auto policy is sometimes as low as the New York state mandatory minimum limits require of $25,000, however, a commercial vehicle, such as a company van, pick-up, tow truck, etc., usually carries policies of insurance coverage with much higher limits and you can be fairly and fully compensated when the driver is negligent.

You do not have to retain a firm in Staten Island if the accident occurs in Staten Island. You need to retain a firm that specializes in truck accidents. Often times, firms from other states, such as ours, are retained because of their experience and knowledge
