Tractor-Trailer Accidents

Tractor-trailers, semitrucks, big rigs. Whatever you call them, they play a crucial part in our economy. They can also play a crucial role in causing devastating injuries to innocent people. Whether due to driver negligence, improper loading procedures, inadequate maintenance or trucking companies looking to cut corners, these massive vehicles can change lives forever.

Maximizing Compensation For New York City Injury Victims

If you have been injured by a negligent driver in a tractor-trailer accident, you should be fully compensated for your losses and injuries. Commercial trucks are required to carry extensive insurance and there are often multiple sources of compensation if an attorney has the skills to uncover and fight for them.

We will fight for your rights and let the insurance company know that you mean business. Our team will not be satisfied until you have been fully and fairly compensated for damages such as pain and suffering, medical bills, lost earnings and rehabilitation.

We Work With The Best Experts

Being able to recreate what happened in an accident and determine the full scope of a person’s needs can make all the difference in a complex tractor-trailer case. We often use qualified safety professionals, engineers, accident reconstructionists and other experts to build the strongest possible case for you. This is often crucial in convincing a jury who was at fault and ensuring you have the compensation you need now and in the future.

“O’Dwyer & Bernstien has helped me in several different situations over the last 12 years that I’ve lived in NYC. They’re my go-to firm because they always obtain the results that I need and deserve. They’re also located in downtown Manhattan, which makes them very convenient. The office and people that work there are exactly what you’d expect from a top tier law firm in the world’s greatest city.”

“When I got hurt in a traffic accident while riding my bike in New York City, my friend suggested I speak to O’Dwyer & Bernstien. Upon my initial phone conversation with a lawyer from the firm I was impressed by his courtesy, quick return phone calls and concise explanation of the legal tactics available to me. After meeting face to face with him, I decided immediately to retain O’Dwyer & Bernstien to represent me in my personal injury case. I was very happy with my attorney and with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend O’Dwyer & Bernstien to anyone seeking legal representation.”

“I retained O’Dwyer & Bernstien on the recommendation of a friend. I was immediately impressed by the firm’s experience and reputation in personal injury law. From the start, my ODB attorney walked me through the process, answered all my questions, explained everything clearly, kept me updated regularly and always promptly returned my telephone calls and emails. My attorney was knowledgeable, professional, courteous and diligent. My case moved through the court system quickly. As trial neared, the insurance company saw that my attorney was experienced and thoroughly prepared to try my case to verdict. As a result, the insurance company caved and settled my case for the full limits of the insurance policy. I love my ODB attorney!”

“When I was hurt on the job I had nowhere to turn for help. I had been working as an electrician’s helper, but my boss was not insured and he had no license to do electrical work. I had just had a new baby girl and Con Ed was going to shut off my lights. A friend told me to call O’Dwyer & Bernstien. They took action right away and got great money for my case. ODB helped me get my life back on track. I will always be grateful.”
