New York Spill Disaster Truck Accidents

Have you recently been hurt in an accident in which toxic chemicals or other materials were spilled on the roadway following a truck incident? If so, you need a New York spill disaster truck accident lawyer.

A New York spill disaster truck accident attorney will look into what caused the accident to begin with. You may be surprised to earn that many trucking accidents are caused by multiple different liable parties. For example, a manufacturer of a defective part that caused the truck to break down could be named as responsible for putting that defective part on the truck. However, if the driver also lost control of the vehicle or was driving while he or she was too tired, this could also be named in your liability claim.

A spilled disaster truck accident lawyer in New York should be the first person you contact after suffering in an incident like this because he or she will do everything possible to recover compensation for you. Your lawyer may be an assertive legal representative who takes your case seriously and recovers compensation through a settlement negotiation. When a settlement negotiation is not possible, the right lawyer will recover compensation by fighting through court and working towards a resolution to help you with the money you need to pay your medical bills at the outset of your case. Only a lawyer can help you with the full recovery you need for your injuries.

You have enough to worry about in the wake of a spill disaster truck accident. You deserve to get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have retained an attorney who will be representing your best interests from the moment that you hire him or her. In these devastating situations, it should not be you dealing with fallout from someone else's spill disaster. You might not even realize the true stakes of what has happened to you until several days or weeks after the incident has occurred. This is because spill disasters can be very difficult to track and you could have exposed yourself to toxic or corrosive chemicals that may cause further illnesses down the line. Getting medical attention is extremely important if you believe that you may have been exposed to these issues during a serious accident. A doctor who is thoroughly experienced in these exposure issues can tell you more about how this may affect your life in the future but it could involve invasive treatments and day to day pain. Because of the high stakes involved in spill disaster trucking accident claims, your willingness to retain experienced legal representation is often the critical point for determining whether or not you will recover compensation.

In these devastating situations, all too often, it is the victim in a spill disaster truck accident claim rather than the driver or the company responsible for the injuries, who deals with the impacts on his or her life going forward. Because of this, a trucking accident attorney who has been working in this field over the course of many years will investigate all possible opportunities for recovery of compensation. This typically begins with determining who could be held liable for the injuries you have sustained.

A knowledgeable attorney is the first person you should call after you have received a medical diagnosis due to a spill disaster. Support from a lawyer is a significant possibility for you if you have never encountered a legal claim like this before and know that your future depends on the outcome.

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
