FAQs

This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • Why Do I Need a Bronx Truck Accident Lawyer?

    Truck accidents in the Bronx commonly involve complex legal disputes involving multiple liable parties, severe injuries, and personal damages. A lawyer who’s an expert in Bronx truck accidents can help you build a strong case and fight to secure the compensation you’re entitled to.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover?

    Victims of truck accidents may be entitled to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, property damages, and non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. If you have questions about what compensation you can receive in your case, contact The Law Offices of Eric Richman today.

  • Who Can Be Held Liable for My Truck Accident?

    Liability in these cases can extend to more parties than just the driver. Liability can extend to trucking companies, cargo loading teams, vehicle manufacturers, and even government entities that are responsible for road maintenance. However, liability will ultimately depend on the specific circumstances of your case.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Truck Accident Claim in New York?

    New York requires personal injury claims to be filed within three years of the accident date, and wrongful death claims must be filed within two years of the date of death. However, you could have only weeks to file if your case involves a government entity.

    Speak with an expert Bronx truck accident lawyer today.

  • Can I Still Recover Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault?

    Perhaps. Because New York follows a comparative negligence rule, you might be eligible to recover damages even if you’re partially at fault for your accident. Your settlement might be reduced by the percentage of fault you are determined to hold in the accident.
