Manhattan Jogger Pinned Under Tractor Trailer

/ Truck Accident /

NEW YORK – A 31-year-old man is fighting for his life at a New York City hospital after he was ran over and pinned under the rear wheels of a tractor trailer, police said.

According to the Daily News, city officials said the man was jogging alongside the truck around 1 a.m. Monday morning.

At some point, the jogger attempted to cross Amsterdam Ave. on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, resulting in the serious collision. He was taken to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries, police reported.

A Manhattan truck accident lawyer says accidents like this often result in catastrophic injuries.

These are some of the most serious injuries a victim can experience as a result of an accident; and they’re some of the most costly injuries to treat.

 

For many Manhattan truck accident victims, they will not have to bear this burden alone. In 2017, victims of car and truck accidents who sought legal counsel obtained four-times more compensation on average than their counterparts who dealt with insurance companies alone.

The compensation these victims ultimately receive not only helps pay for medical bills – it can also cover lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of a family member or companion, transportation costs, and more.

A Manhattan truck accident lawyer says talking with an experienced attorney is a crucial step that victims and their families should take in the hours and days following an accident. In some cases, a personal injury law firm, like Cellino & Barnes, will provide victims with a FREE consultation, and guarantee no fees unless they win your case.

Since most New Yorkers don’t have to deal with truck accidents and injuries regularly, many are not familiar with the complexities of personal injury litigation, and the challenges a person may face when trying to obtain fair compensation from the insurance company. A FREE consultation can provide victims with important information and insights about this process.

 

Every Manhattan truck accident has a set of unique circumstances that the insurance company will be looking at; it’s only fair to have professionals in your corner whose goal is to make sure you get the best result possible, lawyers said.

The jogger who was pinned under the tractor trailer early Monday morning suffered extensive upper body and leg injuries, police reported.

The truck driver remained at the accident scene and was not charged.

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.
