Your Accident Injuries Should Have Never Happened 

It is a bit of a misnomer to call it a truck accident since reckless decisions on behalf of another party gave rise to your current situation. Theoretically, accidents and injuries should rarely happen when everyone is doing their part to remain diligent and compliant. Further, trucks are subject to additional federal regulations not applicable to claims involving standard passenger vehicles, making it even more challenging to determine if you are receiving a fair outcome. 

Your Brooklyn truck accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure ensures that you receive fair compensation under all applicable laws to cover treatment for: 

  • Back injuries 
  • Bone fractures 
  • Burn injuries 
  • Face/neck injuries 
  • Head injuries 
  • Internal injuries 
  • Lacerations and road rash 
  • Mental anguish 
  • Spine/spinal cord injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) 
  • Whiplash 
  • Wrongful death 
  • Other truck accident injuries

Masure has spent more than two decades recovering millions on behalf of injury victims and survivors.

Negligent Accidents Are Caused by Illegal Decisions 

Being injured in a truck accident is no small matter, and occupants of small passenger vehicles often suffer the brunt of the injuries. In an accident involving a several-thousand-pound car and a multi-ton tractor-trailer, there is no competition with a larger vehicle. Many factors come into play during a truck accident, and sometimes, the cause of the accident is not always immediately clear, except for one: the negligent party committed an illegal act. 

The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure has helped injury survivors and family members uncover negligent acts, including: 

  • Illegal driving 
  • Improper maintenance 
  • Improper training 
  • Improper loading 
  • Intoxicated drivers 
  • Malfunctioning parts 
  • Negligently maintained properties 
  • Poor road design/maintenance 
  • Weather-related collisions
  • Other forms of negligence 

If you hire us to represent your case, our Brooklyn truck accident lawyer will leave no stone unturned when investigating a case. We carefully examine all sides of your accident to determine who is at fault, why it was caused, and the degree to which they caused it. Then, Fredric will go to work to get you the compensation for your case that you deserve. 

The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure Holds Liable Parties Accountable 

Liability is determined by proving who acted negligently and the degree to which they were negligent by a percentage. For example, if your settlement is too low because the insurer believes you were 20 percent at fault, you could find out that their facts are wrong after an investigation and discover the truck driver was 100 percent responsible. As such, they owe you all recoverable damages, also known as financial awards, versus the 80 percent offered initially. 

Your Brooklyn truck accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure will hold liable parties accountable including: 

  • Contractors 
  • Employers 
  • Federal government departments 
  • Insurance companies 
  • Loading companies 
  • Local and state governments 
  • Mechanics 
  • Property owners 
  • Third-party drivers 
  • Truck drivers 
  • Truck operators 
  • Truck owners 
  • Vehicle manufacturer 
  • Other liable parties 

You do not have to accept an inadequate settlement for your losses. Instead, get legal advice from our experienced and results-driven firm to determine who is at fault and how much they owe you. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure will use our knowledge, skills, determination, and resources to help you uncover the truth behind your injuries so that all liable parties are held accountable under New York’s civil rules for negotiating settlements or initiating actions. 

Truck Accident Injury Victims and Survivors Deserve Compensation 

Truck accidents can result in severe, life-threatening injuries or even death. These injuries often result in substantial physical, emotional, and financial suffering. By bringing an insurance claim or civil lawsuit for personal injury, you can seek the compensation you deserve to help cover the expense of your mounting losses. 

We have recovered millions on behalf of clients to help them pay for losses under NYS law, including: 

  • Current and future medical bills 
  • Current and future lost wages 
  • Physical pain and suffering 
  • Wrongful death/survival action awards 
  • Unfair practices damages 
  • Punitive damages 
  • Other forms of compensation 

At the Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure, we pursue every dollar owed to clients and their loved ones. Our Brooklyn truck accident attorney has the experience, resources, and legal ability to take on even the most formidable, unrelenting trucking companies, insurance providers, and other liable entities, even if that means taking your case to trial. 

Deadlines Apply to Truck Accident Injury Claims 

New York Civil Practice & Rules § 214 states that you have up to three years to file a claim from the date of your accident injuries. Missing this deadline will prevent you from filing a claim. It is also worth noting that shorter notification deadlines apply when holding government entities liable, so ensure you check on key dates that affect the outcome of your claim. 

Most cases do not take years to settle. However, it is better to negotiate a settlement earlier on in your case since evidence has not had a chance to degrade and eyewitness memories may still be intact. Plus, your Brooklyn truck accident lawyer will meticulously document your case so that if you decide to go to civil trial, we will be prepared to hit the ground running. 

Settle Your Truck Accident Injury Case in Four Phases 

Many people wonder what it takes to work with an attorney and settle a claim. While every case is unique, most cases that come through the Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure doors go through four phases: 

  • Phase 1. Consultation: Our Brooklyn truck accident attorney reviews the facts and evidence of your case and investigates further when necessary. We document all new findings and share new developments with you promptly as we conduct our initial investigation into the facts of your accident. 
  • Phase 2. Case Planning: The information gleaned from the initial consultation and follow-up will give us a vantage point to develop a more advanced strategy. Here, we identify liable parties, possible outcomes, and relevant laws for a more strategic approach. This strategy gives you as much information as possible by which you can make more sound decisions. 
  • Phase 3. Negotiation: After the initial investigation and forming your case strategy, we begin negotiating with insurers, typically in the form of a demand letter. From there, the back-and-forth of arguments will start, and our firm will keep you apprised of new information and offer additional counsel based on the currently known facts. 
  • Phase 4. Civil Action: Liable parties refuse to face facts, delay payments, or lowball settlements. The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure will take them to trial if it makes sense to do so and you want your case to go in that direction. We have decades of civil trial experience and will mount a tough fight. 

Our Brooklyn Truck Accident Lawyer Affords Value-Added Legal Services 

Insurance and trucking companies alike have the right and desire to protect their legal rights, just like you. However, their opinion on what constitutes fair settlement practices may vastly differ from what is stated under New York Insurance Law § 2601. Essentially, late payments, low settlements, and other violations may cause you further loss and frustration. 

Put an ambitious, award-winning legal team on your side to prevent that from happening in the first place. If you hire The Law Offices of Frederic S. Masure, expect us to deliver value-added legal services and resources: 

  • Consult with expert witnesses 
  • Establish liability, negligence, and damages 
  • Free consultations 
  • Investigate the accident and injuries 
  • Manage evidence, deadlines, and correspondence 
  • Negotiate with insurers on your behalf 
  • No upfront fees or retainers 
  • Ongoing legal advice and counsel 
  • Prepare your case for civil action (if desired) 
  • Protect you from counterclaims 

Most personal injury victims and survivors often lack the financial resources necessary to investigate, negotiate, or litigate a truck accident injury insurance claim adequately. Rule 1.5 of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct state that personal injury lawyers may take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. That is why If you walk away from the negotiating table or out of the courtroom and the Law Offices of Fredric S. Masure has not recovered losses for your accident, you will not owe us anything, including the time and resources spent fighting for your rights.
