Truck Accidents

Because of their immense size and weight, when trucks have are involved in accidents often the damages are very severe. Driving a heavy truck through a crowded city is an immense responsibility. When trucks have poorly maintained brakes or other safety equipment, or when their drivers are negligent, and as a result our clients are killed or injured, The Berkman Law Office, LLC holds the drivers and owners of the trucks accountable. 

Because trucks routinely transit the whole country, drivers and trucking companies often reside in distant states. Our first step is to track them down, and investigate whether the truck is owned by a corporation or holding company. We utilize process servers across the country to make sure the proper legal documents are served to protect your claim. Because we are equally at home in federal court as in state court, the fact that a trucking company may be located in a distant state is no impediment to us.

Many trucks are owned by government agencies—busses, garbage trucks, plows, street cleaners, mail trucks, construction equipment, military vehicles police vehicles. When government agencies are involved, one must carefully research the special requirements for suing that agency. For some agencies, for example the City of New York, a claim must be filed within 90 days of the accident. For accidents involving a vehicle owned by the federal government, a complicated process must be followed to comply with the Federal Tort Claims Act. Whatever the agency involved, you can be sure that in the past 60 years The Berkman Law Office, LLC has sued them before, and we’ll know the right procedure to handle your claim.
