Accidents at intersections like Long Beach Boulevard and E. Park Avenue are already dangerous for cars, but the damage done when a truck is involved can be even more devastating. You may receive compensation for lost income, healthcare expenses, lost quality of life, and other damages after you were hurt in a truck accident.
A Nassau County truck accident attorney from the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP can seek a recovery, negotiate a settlement, and represent you throughout your case.
We Protect You From the Moment That You Hire Us
Too often, truck accident victims are unaware of how to protect their rights. Our firm defends you after your accident by:
- Helping you find medical care
- Arranging transportation to your medical appointments
- Reporting any injuries suffered in your truck accident
- Gathering sensitive evidence that may degrade or become unavailable with time
- Advocating for you before insurance companies and attorneys
To the Law Office of Cohen & Jaffe, LLP, “protection” means allowing you to preserve your health, while we stand up for your rights.
We Handle the Next Steps in Your Truck Accident Case
Truck accident cases may be lengthy, and our firm will oversee your lawsuit from start to finish. As you rest and recover, our firm will:
Determine Liability for Your Truck Accident
Even though the truck driver may have caused the accident, the trucking companies may be held liable for their drivers’ actions.
Additional parties may also be liable, such as a truck manufacturer or mechanic. Your case details will help us determine liability.
Identify and Value Your Losses
Truck accident victims all suffer different losses. The nature of your injuries, the severity of symptoms, and your personal reaction to injuries may affect the value of your losses. If you lost a loved one – deaths are comparatively common in truck accidents, per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) – we will seek fair damages.
Negotiating with Insurance Companies
If one or more insurance companies owe you compensation, we will negotiate with them. In truck accident cases, a lawsuit may be necessary to recover full compensation.
Filing Your Injury Lawsuit
Our firm will draft and file your lawsuit within the typical three-year deadline that CVP § 214 imposes. We will complete all subsequent paperwork for your case.

What Awards do We Seek for Truck Accident Victims?
We seek the awards that you deserve. It’s that simple.
If your truck accident caused significant injury, then your recoverable damages may include:
Injuries may require you to scale back your hours or miss work altogether. This may cause lost income, diminished productivity, loss of professional standing, lost opportunity to earn bonuses, and other professional damages.
Past and Projected Medical Costs
You may recover awards for emergency and non-emergency medical care. Ambulance transport, Imaging, medications, doctors’ visits, surgery, hospitalization, and rehabilitation may all entitle you to awards.
Property Repairs and Replacement
Liable parties may cover the repair or replacement of your vehicle. They may also pay to repair or replace any other personal property damaged in your accident.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering is a type of non-economic damage. This damage may cover the cost of physical pain, lost quality of life, sleep disturbance, depression, anxiety disorders, and other types of non-financial harm.
Wrongful Death Damages
Wrongful death cases produce additional damages. Lost companionship, guidance, and financial support, as well as funeral expenses, may be recoverable damages after a wrongful death.
We Determine why You Deserve Compensation
We gather facts and evidence related to your accident. We then determine why you deserve compensation. Some reasons could be:
- A truck driver acted in a dangerous manner, causing your accident as a result.
- A trucking company failed to properly vet or monitor its drivers.
- A defective vehicle or component caused your accident.
Our team will identify the cause of your damages. We will then fight for fair compensation from those who have caused you harm.
