Vehicle accidents in Westchester and Fairfield County are a major cause of property damage, injury, and death each year.

In Westchester and Fairfield County, statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrator show that traffic crashes remain a primary public safety issue. Car, truck and motorcycle accidents are all a common occurrence, despite improvements in vehicle safety features, road design, and traffic signs.

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, it is important to do the following immediately:

  • Remain at the crash scene;
  • Check on the condition of all people involved in the crash;
  • Call the police;
  • Exchange information with other drivers;
  • Get contact information from witnesses;
  • Inform your insurance company;
  • Get appropriate medical treatment, and track the details;
  • Take photos of vehicle damage and injuries.

The drivers of tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks, as well as the companies that employ them, must take special measures to protect the general public. When they fail to do so, they can be held accountable for the injuries and fatalities that results from their negligence.

Truck accident lawyer John Q. Kelly, Esq. and our experienced legal team help clients pursue personal injuries and wrongful death claims against trucking companies. Our truck accident lawyers have the experience and commitment to obtain the results that our clients need and deserve when they are recovering from an accident.

Claims against trucking companies are unique in several ways.

These include:

  • Many tractor-trailer trucks are covered by multiple insurance policies
  • Specific insurance provisions and exclusions may be complicated
  • The trucking industry is covered by unique federal and state safety laws and regulations
  • The trucking company immediately initiates its own investigation when one of its trucks are involved in an accident

Therefore pursuing an injury claim after a truck accident is more complicated than other motor vehicle incidents. Our attorneys understand the immediate steps that need to be taken to prove a claim for compensation, and our experienced legal team is prepared to take on powerful trucking insurance companies on behalf of our clients.
