Experienced Attorneys for Injured Truck Accident Victims
In New York, a truck accident can be a commuter’s worst nightmare. In any truck accident, a car’s smaller size is an extreme disadvantage. If the collision involves an 18-wheeler truck, the car’s occupants face an even greater risk of suffering more catastrophic injuries. In general, more serious injuries and deaths are more likely to occur in a truck accident than accidents involving only passenger vehicles.
If you or a loved one was involved in a truck accident and suffered serious injuries, the truck accident lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. are committed to fighting for full and fair compensation on your behalf. We have the experience, knowledge and resources to hold all of the negligent parties accountable for your personal injuries and property damage.
Our legal team represents individuals and family members of individuals who were injured or lost their loved ones due to motor vehicle accidents with large trucks, such as:
The NYC truck accident attorneys at our law firm will handle all aspects of your truck accident. We will make sure you obtain the necessary medical treatment for the injuries you have suffered. We will go the distance to help you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve for your loss of wages, past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering and the emotional trauma you suffered as a result of the accident.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 333,000 large trucks and commercial vehicles were involved in accidents during 2012. These accidents resulted in more than 3,920 fatalities and 104,000 people getting seriously injured. Although truck accidents are less common than car accidents, when they occur they can cause serious damage.
There are many factors that play into the cause of a truck accident. Some common causes of truck accidents include:
Our experienced attorneys will investigate the circumstances surrounding your truck accident to ensure all of the responsible parties are held accountable for your personal injuries and property damage. In most truck accident cases, the driver is not the only party that may be responsible for your injuries. Other parties may include the trucking company, the individuals who maintained the truck, and the manufacturer of the truck company.
A passenger vehicle is no match for the size and weight of a commercial truck. A loaded semi-truck can weigh more than 80,000 pounds, while most cars weigh only about 3,000 pounds. As such, injuries to occupants of a passenger vehicle tend to be serious and often fatal. Due to the greater likelihood of victims suffering significant injuries, trucking companies and drivers are required to have insurance with higher policy limits.
We have represented truck accident victims who have suffered extensive personal injuries, including:
These types of injuries often require specialized medical treatment, rehabilitation and long-term care. The attorneys at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. will work hard to get you and your family members the maximum compensation that you deserve for all of the injuries you have suffered.
There are many differences between car and truck accidents. One major difference is the requirement for drivers of commercial trucks to possess specialized training, education and formalized instruction. Truckers must obtain a special license in order to operate a commercial truck. If a trucker fails to have the necessary training and license, the trucking company who hired them may also be liable for your injuries based on the theory of negligent hiring and/or training.
These special provisions that are applicable to the trucking industry make it even more important for you to hire a lawyer who specifically handles truck accidents. Our law firm has the knowledge, experience and financial resources to successfully handle your claim and help you obtain the compensation that you deserve.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
So many times I wanted to quick and Jeff guided me on the right path. Answered all my questions, always there when I had a concerned regarding the case. Very smart and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services. I appreciate all your help. My financial future is secure for my family and I thanks to you guys.
Words alone cannot express our utmost gratitude at the comprehensive handling of my family’s case. This was a long, drawn out case that took quite some time to come to judgment. Jeff and his team were very thorough and relentless in their pursuit of justice for our family. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer.
Jeff Korek has been outstanding in accomplishing a settlement of my lawsuit. He has done everything that a client would ask of his lawyer. He and his staff have always been honest, informative,and trust worthy . His reputation as a lawyer who gets the job done has truly been earned. For a personal injury lawyer I would recommend Jeff Korek without any doubt's
