Brooklyn Truck Accident Attorneys

A truck accident can quickly turn into a family’s worst nightmare. Trucks often weigh 20 to 30 times more than a standard passenger vehicle and 99 percent of the time, any injuries as a result of a truck crash are sustained by the occupants of the smaller vehicle.

Insurance companies will try to avoid paying you and your family the compensation you deserve. That’s why it’s important to have a knowledgeable legal team in your corner fighting for what’s right.

At Cellino & Barnes, our Brooklyn truck accident attorneys know large trucks and the devastating accidents they can cause and each of our lawyers will fight to get every penny you deserve.

If you have questions about the legal process, we offer free consultations by phone at 800-888-8888 or you can chat with a legal professional online right now, for free.

Rear End Truck Crash

Each year, the number of serious truck crashes rises. During the last statistical year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that truck crashes resulted in over 104,000 injuries, an 18 percent increase from the previous year.

Many of those injuries were sustained by drivers and passengers in vehicles which were rear-ended by a tractor trailer. In standard vehicle crashes, injuries in this type of accident can be minor but in cases involving a large truck, injuries can be critical.

The Brooklyn truck accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes know quickly your life can change when you’re recovering from a rear-end truck crash. That’s one of the reasons why many of our clients recommend our lawyers to their friends and families. Our clients know the Brooklyn truck crash lawyers can get the best possible results after an accident.

Distracted Truck Driver

Distracted driving is statistically the most common cause of traffic collisions in the United States today. Although texting and driving is most commonly addressed in media reports and journals, researchers have found there are several other distractions that can take a truck driver’s attention away from the roads.

Driver fatigue can also be considered a distraction because a driver cannot completely pay attention to the road and its surroundings while extremely fatigued. Federal agencies recognized this problem and issued guidelines restricting truck drivers to just 77 hours of driving each week.

Unfortunately, surveys have found that truck drivers don’t always abide by these guidelines. At Cellino & Barnes, our Brooklyn truck accident attorneys know exactly what to look for in order to prove how much a truck driver is at fault in your accident.

Truck Accident Injuries

Truck accidents can cause critical injuries to other drivers, passengers and pedestrians sharing the roads. Whiplash, spinal injuries and broken bones can be considered minor in comparison to the severe injuries often associated with truck accidents.

Thousands of victims may suffer traumatic brain injuries, internal bleeding, and a truck accident can endanger a person’s vital organs which may require years of treatment.

Hundreds of other drivers pay the ultimate price in a truck accident. More than 3,500 people are killed in large truck accidents every year and researchers believe nearly all of those fatalities could have been prevented.

Finding the right attorney for your case can be overwhelming. Thousands of other victims trusted the Brooklyn truck accident lawyers at Cellino & Barnes with their cases and in return, we’ve helped our clients get over $1.5 billion in settlements and verdicts.

If you or your family member has been hurt in a truck accident, let our experienced legal professionals help you get the justice you deserve.

Client Thanks

I would like to thank your firm for representing our family on behalf of my late husband. This whole process was, at times, difficult for us and sometimes painful. But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
