What to do following a New Rochelle truck accident
 

After a truck accident in the New Rochelle, NY area, you should:
 

  • Check to see if anyone is injured. If so, call 911 and try to help.

  • Make sure the scene is safe. If not, move to safety nearby, but don't leave the scene altogether.

  • Call the police. You'll want a police report to be filed and the police can provide other help as well.

  • Exchange insurance information and contact info with any other drivers involved in the crash.

  • Don't accept any blame for the crash and try to avoid arguing on the side of the road.

  • Collect witness statements and contact info. These can be used to help build your case.

  • Take photos of the scene and damage with your phone, or a camera if you have one on you.

  • Contact your insurance company to notify them of the crash.

  • Contact the personal injury attorneys Curan & Ahlers for help with your personal injury claim.

  • Consider going to the hospital to be examined even if you don't think you were injured. Injuries like whiplash may not show until later.

 

What are some of the causes of New Rochelle truck accidents?
 

A few common causes of truck accidents in New Rochelle include:
 

  • Road construction

  • Road conditions

  • Weather conditions

  • Driver fatigue

  • DUI/DWI

  • Driver error

  • Poorly maintained vehicles

  • Trucks that are overloaded

 

How does fault work in New York truck accidents?
 

In New York, truck accident cases are handled under a modified version of the state's pure comparative negligence law. This means that if you were partially to blame for the crash, your compensation will be reduced by an amount equal to your percentage of fault.
 

For example, let's say you were injured in a New Rochelle truck accident that caused $100,000 in damages. The other driver was determined to be 80% at fault for the crash, and you were 20% at fault. You would be entitled to recover $80,000 from the other driver's insurance company (80% of $100,000).
 

It's important to note that if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for the crash, you will not be able to recover any compensation from the other driver.
 

This is why it's so important to have an experienced New Rochelle truck accident lawyer on your side who can help you

build a strong case and prove that the other driver was at fault.
 

What types of compensation can I recover in a New Rochelle truck accident case?
 

If you've been injured in a New Rochelle truck accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for:
 

  • Medical expenses

  • Lost wages

  • Pain and suffering

  • Property damage

  • Loss of enjoyment of life

  • Wrongful death

  • And more.

 

The amount of compensation you may be entitled to will depend on the severity of your injuries and damages.
