Motor Vehicle Accidents

THE YANKOWITZ LAW FIRM represents seriously injured automobile, motorcycle, and truck accident victims in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and nationwide through our affiliated offices throughout the U.S.A. We treat your case with the respect it deserves and do everything within our power to simplify the legal process for you and your family.

You are not alone in the aftermath of an accident—our attorneys are here to help you obtain the recovery you deserve.  Don’t let insurance companies try to bully you into accepting a settlement that doesn’t truly reflect your injury, disability, the cost of future medical care, and your loss of earnings.  Insurance companies often hope that you will settle for a quick and immediate payout without fully realizing the toll of your injuries.  Insurance companies are not on your side—even when it’s your insurance company.

Motor vehicle accidents and collisions are caused by a variety of factors, such as negligent, careless, and reckless vehicle operation, poor road conditions, or mechanical failures. Often these cases involve criminal infractions and traffic violations, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, municipal liability (negligently designed roads or highways, signage, guard rails) and product liability (roof collapse or crush, rollover crashes, defective seatbelts, brake, steering, or tire recalls). Often motor vehicle collisions involve uninsured, underinsured, and hit-and-run vehicles.

  • Fractured bone or multiple fractures
  • Surgery
  • Scarring or permanent disfigurement
  • Serious neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Permanent disability, restriction, limitation of motion and inability to perform normal daily activities

Hire an experienced truck accident lawyer

You have to be careful when you choose a law firm to handle your trucking accident.

Whenever a tractor-trailer is involved in a collision with a passenger vehicle, the case becomes more complicated.  There are federal and state rules and regulations with which not every law firm is readily familiar, and the trucking companies often have lawyers on the scene immediately.  Multiple jurisdictions must be considered.  Commercial liability laws impact the case.

THE YANKOWITZ LAW FIRM handles trucking accidents with precision from the beginning.

Often, multiple parties are negligent in trucking accidents, and we fight to hold every one of them responsible.

We also understand that time is of the essence in trucking accident cases and quickly begin our investigations.  Performing a thorough investigation is critical because the trucking company can trash evidence after only 6 months.

There are several factors that cause truck accidents. Among the most common, are:

  • Extreme fatigue due to long hours put in by truck drivers
  • Mechanical problems or defective products including faulty tires or brakes
  • Misjudging the size of the truck or overloading the truck with too much product
  • Reckless driving and speeding in an attempt to meet strict, tight deadlines
  • Negligence or not paying attention to the road
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Truck accidents are among the most serious of collisions. Although many truck accidents are caused in the same way as auto accidents, when the vehicle involved in an accident is a truck there are other factors that can compound the problems and serious nature of the accident. For instance, trucks that carry large amounts of cargo or hazardous materials can endanger others’ lives by exposing them to chemical or toxic spills. This type of situation may not even involve another vehicle.
