New York And Vermont Truck Accident Defense Attorneys

At O'Connor First, our attorneys regularly defend trucking industry clients throughout New York state and southern Vermont. Insured and self-insured trucking companies have retained our firm to defend against personal injury and wrongful death claims stemming from trucking accidents caused by driver negligence, maintenance failures and other careless actions.

In addition, our New York trucking company liability defense attorneys are frequently retained by insurance companies to defend against claims of personal injury or wrongful death in motor vehicle accidents, no-fault arbitrations and SUM/UM arbitrations.

Using Experts To Strengthen Cases

In defending personal injury and wrongful death actions, our lawyers utilize their long-standing relationships with medical and technical experts to investigate the incident and develop advantageous defense strategies. These relationships enable our attorneys to quickly have an accident reconstruction expert respond to the scene of an accident to document and obtain evidence that may otherwise be lost. Likewise, our relationships with many of the country’s foremost medical experts allow our attorneys to more fully evaluate and respond to injuries claimed to have resulted from such accidents.

At O'Connor First, our lawyers understand the importance of obtaining a favorable outcome, and will fervently protect our clients’ interests in mediation and in court. In fact, our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in both state and federal courts, and have obtained several successful verdicts and settlements on their behalf.
