New York Interstate Trucking Accidents

When you are hurt in a serious incident, you may be concerned about your future and unsure of your next steps. A New York interstate trucking accidents lawyer will be the person to help you file a legal claim.

Interstate trucking accidents can be extremely complicated because you may be eligible to file a lawsuit based on where the accident occurred or based on the business operation of any company named in your lawsuit. A New York interstate trucking accidents attorney should be contacted immediately after you have sustained an injury because there are serious consequences associated with waiting too long to get legal help.

The statute of limitations in New York requires that you take quick action to recover compensation with the help of an experienced attorney. An interstate trucking accidents lawyer in New York will be able to help you file a legal claim and fight back to hold the company or any other parties accountable. Interstate trucking accidents refer to a number of different types of crashes that can occur throughout all states. Truck drivers frequently drive throughout many states during the course of delivering just one load. This makes it all the more important for that truck driver to be aware of the federal and state rules and regulations that govern their driving. When a truck driver does not make safety top of mind and skirts the law, he or she may be held accountable in a lawsuit filed by a victim who has been seriously injured. Interstate trucking accidents come with a significant toll for the victim. The size and weight of a commercial truck may protect the driver inside the truck from serious injuries and it may instead be another victim who was critically hurt in that incident, never being able to fully return to their life as they lived it prior to the accident. An interstate trucking accident lawyer is the first person who should be contacted after such an accident because of the high stakes involved in recovering compensation. The injuries typically associated with commercial trucking accidents are severe, including paralysis, spinal cord damage and traumatic brain injuries. You may not even realize the full scope of your injuries until you have had time to consult with an experienced attorney. Scheduling a consultation with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer is often the first step to recovering compensation. Depending on the specifics of your case, your lawyer may try to settle outside of court, minimizing your expenses and the time spent in working towards your case resolution. Regardless of how this comes about, you need to have an attorney who is thoroughly experienced in fighting back against these insurance companies and one who is dedicated to following your case through to completion. If you make the mistake of hiring an attorney who does not care about your outcome or one who does not have the necessary experience to recover compensation, you could expose yourself to risks such as having to pay for your medical bills in the future. No one who has been critically injured in such an accident should have to deal with the consequences on their own. Unfortunately, this is often the case for someone who is critically hurt and does not know where to turn. Do not rely on the trucking insurance company to protect your best interests. Their primary goal is to minimize their own liability. Many people do not realize that multiple different parties could be named as liable in a trucking accident. Your determination to file an injury claim with the help of a lawyer who knows the landscape and one who will not give up on your case is important.

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
