Truck accidents can be incredibly devastating to deal with. This is particularly true if an accident has left you with serious injuries. In many cases, these accidents take place due to some form of negligence, such as speeding or impairment. After being injured in an accident, victims have the right to pursue compensation from the responsible party.
New York’s pure comparative negligence law allows for compensation even if the injured party is mostly at fault, as long as others involved also share some responsibility. This ensures that injured parties are able to recover compensation for the losses and damages that they face due to the negligence of another person. This can include compensation for your medical expenses, any of your lost earnings, pain and suffering that you have been forced to endure, and more.
