What we can do for you
Determining who's responsible for your heavy equipment accident might be much more complicated than you realize. Sometimes, the driver of the vehicle is to blame. Other times, it's the company that owns and cares for the equipment. This is especially true if the company failed to properly maintain the equipment.
Another scenario includes the company that manufactured the heavy equipment. That company could have made defective product that resulted in your injury. Or perhaps a subcontractor hired by the vehicle manufacturer to make specific parts made the mistake.
In many of these cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit and pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries. But you'll never know until you meet with one of our experienced lawyers in our Bronx office. We can also meet with you for a free consultation in your hospital room, your home or wherever works best for you. You decide.
