Construction Vehicle Accidents
New Yorkers trust our attorneys get them the results they need
Collisions involving construction vehicles in New York City can be very serious. That's because such accidents often involve large vehicles, such as dump trucks, cement mixers and other heavy equipment.
But even getting to or from a job site can be dangerous in New York. And when these accidents happen on the job in a construction vehicle, the relevant laws can be very confusing. That's because several companies often work at the same job site. Such accidents can also be complicated depending on who caused the accident, who was driving and whether the injured person was the driver or a passenger in the vehicle.
Cut through the confusion. Contact Giampa Law. Our experienced construction vehicle accident attorneys have helped many injury victims in the Bronx and throughout New York.

How do construction vehicle accidents happen?
Accidents involving construction vehicles in New York occur for many different reasons. Sometimes, it's the person driving the construction vehicle who's at fault. Other times, it's another driver who is to blame for crashing into a construction vehicle. Some of the most common reasons why accidents happen involving construction vehicles include:
- Speeding drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Inexperienced drivers
- Impaired drivers
- Defective vehicles
Don't underestimate the seriousness of your motor vehicle accident. If someone crashed into your construction vehicle while you were driving the vehicle or riding in it as a passenger, contact our law firm to find out how we can help you.
Why you need a lawyer
The laws governing accidents involving construction vehicles in New York can be very complex. As a result, even if your accident seems straightforward, there may be reasons why you can pursue additional compensation beyond workers' compensation or whatever an insurance company may be offering you.
Specifically, we may be able to file a lawsuit on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation allowed for your vehicle collision. If you were a passenger in a vehicle owned by another construction company, for example, we may be able to pursue a third-party injury claim on your behalf.
Don't wait to take legal action. A delay could affect the outcome of your case. Under New York State law, victims of accidents generally only have up to 3 years to take legal from the date of the accident. That might seem like a long time. But building a strong legal case often takes a tremendous amount of time. Contact our law firm right away and schedule your free case evaluation.
