STEVE GORDON: If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident in the state of New York and you've made your way to this web page, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Steve Gordon, and together with Todd Elias we comprise the law firm of Gordon and Elias.
We are truck accident lawyers. Now, it does matter. It's a big difference actually between getting involved in a truck accident outside of the city and within the city. And there are major differences in the way those cases should be handled. We have the experience to handle your case from the beginning to the end.
But there are many, many lawyers, as you know, in New York, and the question is why should you even select Gordon and Elias, why should you even look to Gordon and Elias? That question is answered with what we call the Gordon and Elias difference.

STEVE GORDON: Number one, we are a national firm.

STEVE GORDON: We have lawyers, relationships with lawyers in every state in the United States, and so we look at things on a national perspective.

STEVE GORDON: In almost every truck accident there involves one or more states.

STEVE GORDON: So you need lawyers that are going to look at things from a national perspective and not be pigeonholed into where that particular lawyer's office is or where he or she lives.
STEVE GORDON: We determine the cause of the accident early.

STEVE GORDON: And we want to make sure that we lock it down.
STEVE GORDON: It could be brakes.

STEVE GORDON: It could be fatigue. It could be driver negligence, recklessness.

STEVE GORDON: It could be drug usage on the part of the truck driver, or alcohol usage.

STEVE GORDON: It could be company negligence.

STEVE GORDON: It could be improper loads. There are many different factors and one of the things we do early on is to lock that down.
STEVE GORDON: Because we have a national orientation, we make sure that where your lawsuit is filed is the best place.

STEVE GORDON: Our goal is to get you in the best spot possible.
[GRAPHIC: Medical Care]
STEVE GORDON: It's imperative that you get the right doctor for the right medical care.

STEVE GORDON: And so Gordon and Elias makes sure if you have an orthopedic problem that you get an orthopedic or neurosurgeon to treat you, not just some general practitioner.
STEVE GORDON: So getting the right medical care is imperative.

STEVE GORDON: And finally, and I think most importantly, it has nothing to do with lawyering; it has to do with being people and persons.

STEVE GORDON: This is your family and your family's livelihood, and we are literally like your family.

STEVE GORDON: At the end, I can assure you, we'll maybe be invited over to your house for dinner and vice versa, because for some time period we're going to be very close together.
And those are the reasons why I would pick Gordon and Elias.
