If you have been seriously injured in a truck accident or a family member was killed in a tractor-trailer accident, please email us or call our free Injury Answerline® at 1-800-LAW-7777 (1-800-529-7777 Toll-Free Nationwide). We are committed to fighting for full and fair compensation for clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims related to all types of truck accidents.

Truck crashes and 18-wheeler accidents present unique issues not associated with typical motor vehicle accident cases. These differences include:

  • Higher likelihood of serious injury, including spinal cord injury, paralysis and brain injury
  • Governmental safety regulations in the trucking industry
  • Transportation of hazardous materials
  • Driver hours of operation
  • Inspection, repair and maintenance of vehicles
  • Negligent hiring, training and supervision
  • Complicated insurance coverage issues

Truck accident claims are complex. They can often involve multiple defendants in locations throughout the United States, as well as extensive evidence, expert testimony, and complex procedural and legal issues. Also, the injuries people sustain in truck accidents can be severe.

Our lawyers have experience dealing with the complicated legal, medical and insurance issues that can arise in truck accident litigation. We are skilled at handling these challenging matters.

With offices in Albany, Poughkeepsie, New York City and numerous other convenient locations, we provide legal representation to clients throughout New York. Through co-counsel relationships with a network of experienced injury lawyers developed over many years, Ellis Law is prepared to assist injury victims with accident claims and wrongful death litigation throughout New York and anywhere in the United States. These law firms assume joint responsibility with us for the case and share the standard legal fees with us. In cases in which we employ co-counsel, our clients benefit from the full resources of "two law firms for the price of one." In other words, there is no additional fee for the client to have full access to the resources of both law firms.
