New York Hazardous Materials Release

A New York hazardous material release trucking accident lawyer should be the first phone call you make after you've received a diagnosis of a serious medical condition following an accident.

A hazardous materials release trucking accident attorney in New York will investigate the scene of the incident and figure out whether or not there is grounds for you to pursue a legal claim. If you wait too long to get necessary legal help, you may not be able to recover compensation and a legal claim. The support of a lawyer is extremely valuable during this overwhelming time.

An attorney may be the only person who can fully help you fighting back when you believe you have sustained injuries because of another driver or the trucking company's negligent actions. A New York hazardous materials release trucking accident attorney will be able to tell you how many different parties could be named potentially liable in your lawsuit and how this may ultimately affect your outcome.

You may not even realize what happened at the scene of the accident until after the fact when someone informs you that it appears cargo fell off of the back of the truck or spilled onto the roadway.

You might not have even realized that you were sharing the road with someone transporting hazardous materials because you likely did not pay attention to the signs and other insignia on the side of the truck. If you suffered injuries because a truck driver was negligent, however, such as overloading the cargo or improperly loading it, you may raise this as a concern as your personal injury claim.

Furthermore, if the trucking accident company is responsible for any dangerous activities, you can also hold them as responsible and present this in a compelling personal injury case.

Hazardous materials being released can have devastating consequences for other drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and more. It can also do harm to the environment depending on how long the material sat there and whether or not they were absorbed by the surrounding area. Hazardous materials being released could have long-lasting consequences, particularly if it was material that could cause damage on skin contact or through inhalation.

You might not even know the full consequences of the hazardous materials until you have been fully evaluated by a doctor who has special expertise in determining the short and long-term impacts of these hazardous materials. The support of a dedicated attorney is crucial for recovering maximum compensation when you find yourself in the midst of a legal claim like this.

An experienced attorney will be able to give you further information about what to anticipate and how to best protect yourself. An attorney who is very familiar with all of the various aspects of a personal injury claim will give you a great deal of confidence so that you can remain focused on your medical care and the other critical aspects of your legal claim.

Client Reviews
When my mom, who is suffering from dementia, faced a slip and fall personal injury lawsuit, I contacted Stephen Bilkis of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates. Not only did he provide a strategy for defending the claim, he also advised me on steps to take to avoid future personal liability. Whether you are the defendant or plaintiff in an injury case, I highly recommend Mr. Bilkis. S.M.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
I had my first encounter with Mr. Stephen Bilkis three years ago over the phone. He and his staff have been nothing but courtesy and professional. Their hard work ended with a large six-figure settlement for my case. I would highly recommend you contact his office. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Ms. Tricia Krapf. She always made me feel like a priority and was always kind and professional over the phone and email. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. Celesta
